Vindicate me,1 LORD, for I have led a blameless life;2 I have trusted3 in the LORD and have not faltered.42
Test me,5 LORD, and try me, examine my heart and my mind;63
for I have always been mindful of your unfailing love7 and have lived8 in reliance on your faithfulness.94
I do not sit10 with the deceitful, nor do I associate 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, LORD,
proclaiming aloud your praise14 and telling of all your wonderful deeds.158
LORD, I love16 the house where you live, the place where your glory dwells.179
Do not take away my soul along with sinners, my life with those who are bloodthirsty,1810
in whose hands are wicked schemes,19 whose right hands are full of bribes.2011
I lead a blameless life; redeem me21 and be merciful to me.
My feet stand on level ground;22 in the great congregation23 I will praise the LORD.
