Judge me, O Jehovah, for I◦ have walked in my integrity;
and I have trusted in Jehovah; I shall not falter.
Test me, O Jehovah, and tempt me;
examine my kidneys and my heart.
For Thy mercy is in··front··of my eyes;
and I walk in Thy truth.
I have not sat with vain mortals;
and with those who hide◦ themselves, I will not go··in.
I hate the assembly of evildoers,
and with the wicked I will not sit.
I will bathe my palms in innocence;
and I will surround Thine altar, O Jehovah;
to make the voice of confession to be heard,
and to recount◦ all Thy wonders.
O Jehovah, I love the abode of Thy house
and the place of the habitation of Thy glory.
Gather not my soul with sinners,
nor◦ my lives with men◦ of bloods*;
in whose hands is a crime,
and their right··hand is··full of a bribe.
But I◦, in my integrity, will I walk◦;
ransom me, and be··gracious··to me.
My foot stands in uprightness;
in the assemblies will I bless Jehovah.
