The Psalms

A Protestation of Integrity
A Psalm of David.

1  Judge me, O LORD;
for I have walked in mine integrity:
I have trusted also in the LORD;
therefore I shall not slide.
2  Examine me, O LORD, and prove me;
try my reins and my heart.
3  For thy loving-kindness is before mine eyes:
and I have walked in thy truth.
4  I have not sat with vain persons,
neither will I go in with dissemblers.
5  I have hated the congregation of evildoers;
and will not sit with the wicked.
6  I will wash mine hands in innocency:
so will I compass thine altar, O LORD:
7  that I may publish with 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 honor dwelleth.
9  Gather not my soul with sinners,
nor my life with bloody men:
10  in whose hands is mischief,
and their right hand is full of bribes.
11  But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity:
redeem me, and be merciful unto me.
12  My foot standeth in an even place:
in the congregations will I bless the LORD.
