|Protestation of Integrity, and Prayer for Protection|
|A Psalm of David.|
| ||JUDGE me, O Jehovah, for I have walked in mine integrity:|
I have trusted also in Jehovah without 1 wavering.
| ||Examine me, O Jehovah, and prove me;|
Try my heart 2 and my mind.
| ||For thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes;|
And I have walked in thy truth.
| ||I have not sat with men of falsehood;|
Neither will I go in with dissemblers.
| ||I hate the assembly of evildoers,|
And will not sit with the wicked.
| ||I will wash my hands in innocency:|
So will I compass thine altar, O Jehovah;
| ||That I may make 3 the voice of thanksgiving to be heard,|
And tell of all thy wondrous works.
| ||Jehovah, I love the habitation of thy house,|
And the place where 4 thy glory dwelleth.
| ||Gather 5 not my soul with sinners,|
Nor my life with men of blood;
| ||In whose hands is wickedness,|
And their right hand is full of bribes.
| ||But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity:|
Redeem me, and be merciful unto me.
| ||My foot standeth in an even place:|
In the congregations will I bless Jehovah.
