GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)
1 Judge me favorably, O LORD, because I have walked with integrity and I have trusted you without wavering. 1 Vindicate me, O LORD, for I have led a blameless life; I have trusted in the LORD without wavering.
2 Examine me, O LORD, and test me. Look closely into my heart and mind. 2 Test me, O LORD, and try me, examine my heart and my mind;
3 I see your mercy in front of me. I walk in the light of your truth. 3 for your love is ever before me, and I walk continually in your truth.
4 I did not sit with liars, and I will not be found among hypocrites. 4 I do not sit with deceitful men, nor do I consort with hypocrites;
5 I have hated the mob of evildoers and will not sit with wicked people. 5 I abhor the assembly of evildoers and refuse to sit with the wicked.
6 I will wash my hands in innocence. I will walk around your altar, O LORD, 6 I wash my hands in innocence, and go about your altar, O LORD,
7 so that I may loudly sing a hymn of thanksgiving and tell about all your miracles. 7 proclaiming aloud your praise and telling of all your wonderful deeds.
8 O LORD, I love the house where you live, the place where your glory dwells. 8 I love the house where you live, O LORD, the place where your glory dwells.
9 Do not sweep away my soul along with hardened sinners or my life along with bloodthirsty people. 9 Do not take away my soul along with sinners, my life with bloodthirsty men,
10 Evil schemes are in their hands. Their right hands are full of bribes. 10 in whose hands are wicked schemes, whose right hands are full of bribes.
11 But I walk with integrity. Rescue me, and have pity on me. 11 But I lead a blameless life; redeem me and be merciful to me.
12 My feet stand on level ground. I will praise the LORD with the choirs in worship. 12 My feet stand on level ground; in the great assembly I will praise the LORD.
