(16-1) <The prayer of David.> Hear, O Lord, my justice: attend to my supplication. Give ear unto my prayer, which proceedeth not from deceitful lips.
(16-2) Let my judgment come forth from thy countenance: let thy eyes behold the things that are equitable.
(16-3) Thou hast proved my heart, and visited it by night, thou hast tried me by fire: and iniquity hath not been found in me.
(16-4) That my mouth may not speak the works of men: for the sake of the words of thy lips, I have kept hard ways.
(16-5) Perfect thou my goings in thy paths: that my footsteps be not moved.
(16-6) I have cried to thee, for thou, O God, hast heard me: O incline thy ear unto me, and hear my words.
