I do not sit1 with deceitful men, nor do I consort with hypocrites;25
I abhor3 the assembly of evildoers and refuse to sit with the wicked.
I wash my hands in innocence,4 and go about your altar, O LORD,
proclaiming aloud your praise5 and telling of all your wonderful deeds.68
I love7 the house where you live, O LORD, the place where your glory dwells.89
Do not take away my soul along with sinners, my life with bloodthirsty men,910
in whose hands are wicked schemes,10 whose right hands are full of bribes.1111
But I lead a blameless life; redeem me12 and be merciful to me.
My feet stand on level ground;13 in the great assembly14 I will praise the LORD.
