1 Vindicate me, LORD, because I have walked in integrity; I have trusted in the LORD without wavering. 2 Examine me, LORD, and inspect me! Test my heart and mind. 3 For your gracious love precedes me, and I continuously walk according to your truth.
4 I do not sit with those committed to what is false, nor do I travel with hypocrites. 5 I hate the company of those who practice evil, nor do I sit with the wicked. 6 I wash my hands innocently. I go around your altar, LORD, 7 so I may praise you loudly with thanksgiving and declare all your wondrous acts.
8 LORD, I love the dwelling place that is your house, the place where your glory resides. 9 Do not group me with sinners, nor include me with men who shed blood. 10 Their hands are filled with wicked schemes, and their right hands with bribes.
