A Psalm of David. Vindicate me, O Lord, for I have walked in my integrity, And I have trusted in the Lord without wavering.
The Lord judges the peoples; Vindicate me, O Lord, according to my righteousness and my integrity that is in me.
“ Remember now, O Lord, I beseech You, how I have walked before You in truth and with a whole heart and have done what is good in Your sight.” And Hezekiah wept bitterly.
The Lord is my strength and my shield; My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped; Therefore my heart exults, And with my song I shall thank Him.
A righteous man who walks in his integrity— How blessed are his sons after him.
“ He keeps the feet of His godly ones, But the wicked ones are silenced in darkness; For not by might shall a man prevail.
The Lord therefore be judge and decide between you and me; and may He see and plead my cause and deliver me from your hand.”
Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, And trust in the Lord.
He who walks with integrity, and works righteousness, And speaks truth in his heart.
For the king trusts in the Lord, And through the lovingkindness of the Most High he will not be shaken.
O my God, in You I trust, Do not let me be ashamed; Do not let my enemies exult over me.
Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, For I wait for You.
But as for me, I shall walk in my integrity; Redeem me, and be gracious to me.
But as for me, I trust in You, O Lord, I say, “ You are my God.”
Judge me, O Lord my God, according to Your righteousness, And do not let them rejoice over me.
The law of his God is in his heart; His steps do not slip.
Vindicate me, O God, and plead my case against an ungodly nation; O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man!
For the choir director; on stringed instruments. A Maskil of David, when the Ziphites came and said to Saul, “Is not David hiding himself among us?” Save me, O God, by Your name, And vindicate me by Your power.
He only is my rock and my salvation, My stronghold; I shall not be greatly shaken.
He only is my rock and my salvation, My stronghold; I shall not be shaken.
If I should say, “ My foot has slipped,” Your lovingkindness, O Lord, will hold me up.
He will not allow your foot to slip; He who keeps you will not slumber.
The Lord will protect you from all evil; He will keep your soul.
The fear of man brings a snare, But he who trusts in the Lord will be exalted.
But to me it is a very small thing that I may be examined by you, or by any human court; in fact, I do not even examine myself.
For our proud confidence is this: the testimony of our conscience, that in holiness and godly sincerity, not in fleshly wisdom but in the grace of God, we have conducted ourselves in the world, and especially toward you.
Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful;
who are protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
Therefore, brethren, be all the more diligent to make certain about His calling and choosing you; for as long as you practice these things, you will never stumble;
