1Vindicate me, O LORD,for I have led a blameless life;I have trusted in the LORDwithout wavering.
2Test me, O LORD, and try me,examine my heart and my mind;
3for your love is ever before me,and I walk continually in your truth.
4I do not sit with deceitful men,nor do I consort with hypocrites;
5I abhor the assembly of evildoersand refuse to sit with the wicked.
6I wash my hands in innocence,and go about your altar, O LORD,
7proclaiming aloud your praiseand telling of all your wonderful deeds.
8I love the house where you live, O LORD,the place where your glory dwells.
9Do not take away my soul along with sinners,my life with bloodthirsty men,
10in whose hands are wicked schemes,whose right hands are full of bribes.
11But I lead a blameless life;redeem me and be merciful to me.
12My feet stand on level ground;in the great assembly I will praise the LORD.
