1Vindicate me, O LORD, for I have walked in my integrity, And I have trusted in the LORD without wavering.
2Examine me, O LORD, and try me; Test my mind and my heart.
3For Your lovingkindness is before my eyes, And I have walked in Your truth.
4I do not sit with deceitful men, Nor will I go with pretenders.
5I hate the assembly of evildoers, And I will not sit with the wicked.
6I shall wash my hands in innocence, And I will go about Your altar, O LORD,
7That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving And declare all Your wonders.
8O LORD, I love the habitation of Your house And the place where Your glory dwells.
9Do not take my soul away [along] with sinners, Nor my life with men of bloodshed,
10In whose hands is a wicked scheme, And whose right hand is full of bribes.
11But as for me, I shall walk in my integrity; Redeem me, and be gracious to me.
12My foot stands on a level place; In the congregations I shall bless the LORD.
