Test me,1 O LORD, and try me, examine my heart and my mind;23
for your love3 is ever before me, and I walk continually4 in your truth.54
I do not sit6 with deceitful men, nor do I consort with hypocrites;75
I abhor8 the assembly of evildoers and refuse to sit with the wicked.
I wash my hands in innocence,9 and go about your altar, O LORD,
proclaiming aloud your praise10 and telling of all your wonderful deeds.118
I love12 the house where you live, O LORD, the place where your glory dwells.139
Do not take away my soul along with sinners, my life with bloodthirsty men,1410
in whose hands are wicked schemes,15 whose right hands are full of bribes.1611
But I lead a blameless life; redeem me17 and be merciful to me.
My feet stand on level ground;18 in the great assembly19 I will praise the LORD.
