1 A Psalm of David. Judge me, O Jehovah; for I have walked in my truthfulness. I have trusted also in Jehovah; I shall not slide. 2 Examine me, O Jehovah, and prove me; purify my heart and my mind. 3 For Your loving-kindness is before my eyes; and I have walked in Your truth.
4 I have not sat with lying men, neither will I go in with hypocrites. 5 I have hated the congregation of evil-doers, and will not sit with the wicked. 6 I will wash my hands in innocency; so I will go around Your altar, O Jehovah, 7 so that I may cry out with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all Your wonderful works.
8 Jehovah, I have loved the dwelling place of Your house, and the place where Your honor dwells. 9 Do not take away my soul with sinners, nor my life with bloody men 10 in whose hands is a plot, and their right hand is full of a bribe.
11 But I will walk in my truthfulness; redeem me and be merciful to me. 12 My foot stands in an even place; in the congregations I will bless Jehovah.
