1 Do me justice, O Yahweh, For, I, in my blamelessness, have walked, and, in Yahweh, have I trusted, I will not waver. 2 Try me, O Yahweh, and prove me, Test my reins and my heart: - 3 For, thy lovingkindness, hath been before mine eyes, and I have walked to and fro in thy faithfulness;
4 I have not sat with men of deceit, nor, with dissemblers, would I enter; 5 I have hated the convocation of evil-doers, and, with lawless men, would I not sit; 6 I will bathe, in pureness, my hands, - so will I go in procession around thine altar, O Yahweh; 7 To sound aloud a song, and to recount all thy wonderful doings.
8 O Yahweh, I have loved the asylum of thy house, even the place of the habitation of thy glory! 9 Do not remove, with sinners, my soul, nor, with men of bloodshed, my life; 10 In whose hands is a plot, and, their right hand, is filled with a bribe.
