A Prayer of David. Hear the right, O LORD, attend to my cry, give ear to my prayer, [that goeth] not out of feigned lips.
Let my sentence come forth from thy presence; let thy eyes behold the things that are equal.
Thou hast proved my heart; thou hast visited [me] in the night; thou hast tried me, [and] shalt find nothing; I have purposed [that] my mouth shall not transgress.
Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have kept [me from] the paths of the destroyer.
Uphold my goings in thy paths, [that] my footsteps slip not.
I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God: incline thy ear to me, [and hear] my speech.
