Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 [The psalm of David.] Lord, deem thou me, for I entered in mine innocence; and I hoping in the Lord, shall not be made unsteadfast. (The song of David. Lord, judge me, for I have gone my way in innocence; and trusting in the Lord, I have not been made unsteady, that is, I have not slipped, or stumbled.) 1 Vindicate me, O LORD, for I have led a blameless life; I have trusted in the LORD without wavering.
2 Lord, prove thou me, and assay me; burn thou my reins, and mine heart (burn thou my will, and my heart). 2 Test me, O LORD, and try me, examine my heart and my mind;
3 For why thy mercy is before mine eyes; and I pleased in thy truth. (For thy love is always before me; and I have gone in thy faithfulness.) 3 for your love is ever before me, and I walk continually in your truth.
4 I sat not with the counsel of vanity; and I shall not enter with men doing wicked things. (I sat not down with vain, that is, empty, or worthless, people; and I shall not go along with those who do wicked things.) 4 I do not sit with deceitful men, nor do I consort with hypocrites;
5 I hated the church of evil men; and I shall not sit with wicked men. (I hate the company of evil people; and I shall not sit with the wicked.) 5 I abhor the assembly of evildoers and refuse to sit with the wicked.
6 I shall wash mine hands among innocents; and, Lord, I shall compass thine altar. (I shall wash my hands in innocence; and then, Lord, I shall march around thy altar.) 6 I wash my hands in innocence, and go about your altar, O LORD,
7 That I hear the voice of praising; and that I tell out all thy marvels. (And I shall sing thy praises with thanksgiving; and I shall tell of all thy marvellous deeds.) 7 proclaiming aloud your praise and telling of all your wonderful deeds.
8 Lord, I have loved the fairness of thine house; and the place of the dwelling of thy glory. (Lord, I love the beauty of thy House; yea, the place where thy glory dwelleth.) 8 I love the house where you live, O LORD, the place where your glory dwells.
9 God, lose thou not my soul with unfaithful men; and my life with men of bloods. (God, do not thou destroy me along with the unfaithful; and do not take away my life along with those who thirst for blood, that is, murderers.) 9 Do not take away my soul along with sinners, my life with bloodthirsty men,
10 In whose hands wickednesses be; the right hand of them is full-filled with gifts. (In whose hands be wickednesses; their right hands be filled full with bribes.) 10 in whose hands are wicked schemes, whose right hands are full of bribes.
11 But I entered in mine innocence; again-buy thou me, and have mercy on me. (But I went forth in innocence; so redeem thou me, and have mercy on me.) 11 But I lead a blameless life; redeem me and be merciful to me.
12 My foot stood in rightfulness; Lord, I shall bless thee in churches. (Yea, my feet standeth on firm ground; Lord, I shall bless thee in the congregations.) 12 My feet stand on level ground; in the great assembly I will praise the LORD.
