Vindicate me,1 O LORD, for I have led a blameless life;2 I have trusted3 in the LORD without wavering.42
Test me,5 O LORD, and try me, examine my heart and my mind;63
for your love7 is ever before me, and I walk continually8 in your truth.94
I do not sit10 with deceitful men, nor do I consort with hypocrites;115
I abhor12 the assembly of evildoers and refuse to sit with the wicked.
I wash my hands in innocence,13 and go about your altar, O LORD,
proclaiming aloud your praise14 and telling of all your wonderful deeds.158
I love16 the house where you live, O LORD, the place where your glory dwells.179
Do not take away my soul along with sinners, my life with bloodthirsty men,1810
in whose hands are wicked schemes,19 whose right hands are full of bribes.2011
But I lead a blameless life; redeem me21 and be merciful to me.
My feet stand on level ground;22 in the great assembly23 I will praise the LORD.
