Give judgement for me, O Lord,
for I have walked in my integrity :
I have trusted in the Lord and not wavered.
Put me to the test, O Lord, and prove me :
try my mind and my heart.
For your steadfast love has been ever before my eyes :
and I have walked in your truth.
I have not sat with deceivers :
nor consorted with the hypocrites;
I hate the assembly of the wicked :
I will not sit with the ungodly.
I wash my hands in innocence, O Lord :
that I may go about your altar,
And lift up the voice of thanksgiving :
to tell of all your marvellous works.
Lord, I love the house of your habitation :
and the place where your glory dwells.
Do not sweep me away with sinners :
nor my life with men of blood,
In whose hand is abomination :
and their right hand is full of bribes.
As for me, I walk in my integrity :
O ransom me and be favourable toward me.
My foot stands on an even path :
I will bless the Lord in the great congregation.
