1 {A Psalm of David} Be thou my Judge, O LORD, for I walk innocently. My trust hath been also in the LORD; therefore shall I not fall. 2 Examine me, O LORD, and prove me: try out my reins and my heart. 3 For thy loving-kindness is ever before mine eyes; and I will walk in thy truth.
4 I have not dwelt with vain persons; neither will I have fellowship with the deceitful. 5 I hate the congregation of the wicked, and will not sit among the ungodly. 6 I wash my hands with innocency, O LORD, and so will I go to thine altar, 7 that I may show the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works.
8 LORD, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where thine honour dwelleth. 9 O shut not up my soul with the sinners, nor my life with the bloodthirsty, 10 in whose hands is wickedness, and their righthand is full of gifts.
11 But as for me, I will walk innocently: O deliver me, and be merciful unto me. 12 My foot standeth right: I will praise the LORD in the congregations.
