21Examine me, O LORD, and try me; 2Test my amind and my heart.
For Your 3lovingkindness is before my eyes, And I have 4walked in Your btruth.
I do not 5sit with cdeceitfulmen, Nor will I go with d6pretenders.
I 7hate the assembly of evildoers, And I will not sit with the wicked.
I shall 8wash my hands in innocence, And I will goabout9Your altar, O LORD,
That I may proclaim with the voice of 10thanksgiving And declareall Your ewonders.
O LORD, I 11love the habitation of Your house And the placefwhere Your 12glorydwells.
913Do not gtake my soulaway along with sinners, Nor my life with 14men of bloodshed,
In whosehands is a 15wickedscheme, And whose righthand is full of 16bribes.
But as for me, I shall 17walk in my integrity ; 18Redeem me, and be gracious to me.
1219My footstands on a 20levelplace ; In the 21congregations I shall bless the LORD.
