I Will Bless the Lord

Of David.

1Vindicate me, O Lord,

for I have walked in my integrity,

and I have trusted in the Lord without wavering.

2Prove me, O Lord, and try me;

test my heart and my mind.

3For your steadfast love is before my eyes,

and I walk in your faithfulness.

4I do not sit with men of falsehood,

nor do I consort with hypocrites.

5I hate the assembly of evildoers,

and I will not sit with the wicked.

6I wash my hands in innocence

and go around your altar, O Lord,

7proclaiming thanksgiving aloud,

and telling all your wondrous deeds.

8O Lord, I love the habitation of your house

and the place where your glory dwells.

9Do not sweep my soul away with sinners,

nor my life with bloodthirsty men,

10in whose hands are evil devices,

and whose right hands are full of bribes.

11But as for me, I shall walk in my integrity;

redeem me, and be gracious to me.

12My foot stands on level ground;

in the great assembly I will bless the Lord.
