New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
1 Vindicate me, O Lord, for I have walked in my integrity, and I have trusted in the Lord without wavering. 1 Vindicate me, O LORD, for I have led a blameless life; I have trusted in the LORD without wavering.
2 Prove me, O Lord, and try me; test my heart and mind. 2 Test me, O LORD, and try me, examine my heart and my mind;
3 For your steadfast love is before my eyes, and I walk in faithfulness to you. 3 for your love is ever before me, and I walk continually in your truth.
4 I do not sit with the worthless, nor do I consort with hypocrites; 4 I do not sit with deceitful men, nor do I consort with hypocrites;
5 I hate the company of evildoers, and will not sit with the wicked. 5 I abhor the assembly of evildoers and refuse to sit with the wicked.
6 I wash my hands in innocence, and go around your altar, O Lord, 6 I wash my hands in innocence, and go about your altar, O LORD,
7 singing aloud a song of thanksgiving, and telling all your wondrous deeds. 7 proclaiming aloud your praise and telling of all your wonderful deeds.
8 O Lord, I love the house in which you dwell, and the place where your glory abides. 8 I love the house where you live, O LORD, the place where your glory dwells.
9 Do not sweep me away with sinners, nor my life with the bloodthirsty, 9 Do not take away my soul along with sinners, my life with bloodthirsty men,
10 those in whose hands are evil devices, and whose right hands are full of bribes. 10 in whose hands are wicked schemes, whose right hands are full of bribes.
11 But as for me, I walk in my integrity; redeem me, and be gracious to me. 11 But I lead a blameless life; redeem me and be merciful to me.
12 My foot stands on level ground; in the great congregation I will bless the Lord. 12 My feet stand on level ground; in the great assembly I will praise the LORD.
