2Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; Try my mind and my heart.2Test me, O LORD, and try me; examine my heart and mind.
3For Your lovingkindness is before my eyes, And I have walked in Your truth.3For Your loving devotion is before my eyes, and I have walked in Your truth.
4I have not sat with idolatrous mortals, Nor will I go in with hypocrites.4I do not sit with deceitful men, nor keep company with hypocrites.
5I have hated the assembly of evildoers, And will not sit with the wicked.5I hate the mob of evildoers, and refuse to sit with the wicked.
6I will wash my hands in innocence; So I will go about Your altar, O LORD,6I wash my hands in innocence that I may go about Your altar, O LORD,
7That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving, And tell of all Your wondrous works.7to raise my voice in thanksgiving and declare all Your wonderful works.
8LORD, I have loved the habitation of Your house, And the place where Your glory dwells.8O LORD, I love the house where You dwell, the place where Your glory resides.
9Do not gather my soul with sinners, Nor my life with bloodthirsty men,9Do not take my soul away with sinners, or my life with men of bloodshed,
10In whose hands is a sinister scheme, And whose right hand is full of bribes.10in whose hands are wicked schemes, whose right hands are full of bribes.
11But as for me, I will walk in my integrity; Redeem me and be merciful to me.11But I will walk with integrity; redeem me and be merciful to me.
12My foot stands in an even place; In the congregations I will bless the LORD.12My feet stand on level ground; in the congregations I will bless the LORD.
