1 Judge me, O Jehovah: Because in my integrity I have walked, And in Jehovah have trusted, I shall not stumble.
2 Prove me, O Jehovah! and try me, Examine my reins and my heart.
3 For thy goodness is before my eyes; Therefore I have walked in thy truth.
4 I have not sat with men of vanity, And with crafty men I will not go in.
5 I hate the assembly of transgressors, And with the wicked I will not sit.
6 I will wash in purity my hands, And will encompass thy altar, O Jehovah!
7 To cause to be heard the voice of praise, And to tell of all thy marvelous deeds.
8 O Jehovah! I have loved the habitation of thy house, And the place of the dwelling of thy glory.
9 Gather not with ungodly men, my soul, Nor with men of bloods my life.
10 For in their hands is maliciousness, And their right hand is full of bribes.
11 But as for me in my integrity I will walk: Redeem me, and have mercy upon me.
12 My foot hath stood in uprightness: In the congregations will I bless thee, O Jehovah!
