Protestation of Integrity and Prayer for Protection.
A Psalm of David.
1Vindicate me, O LORD, for I have walked in my integrity;
2Examine me, O LORD, and try me;
3For Thy lovingkindness is before my eyes,
4I do not sit with deceitful men,
5I hate the assembly of evildoers,
6I shall wash my hands in innocence,
7That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving,
8O LORD, I love the habitation of Thy house,
9Do not take my soul away along with sinners,
10In whose hands is a wicked scheme,
11But as for me, I shall walk in my integrity;
12My foot stands on a level place;
