¶ Of DavidBe thou my Iudge, O LORD, for I walk innocently: my trust is in the LORD, therefore shall I not fall. Examine me, O LORD, and prove me: try out my reins and my heart. For thy loving kindness is before mine eyes, and I walk in thy truth. I sit not among vain persons, and have no fellowship with the deceitful. I hate the congregation of the wicked, and will not sit among the ungodly.
¶ I wash my hands with innocency, O LORD, and so go I to thine altar. That I may shew the voice of thy praise and tell of all thy wonderous works. LORD, I love the habitation of thy house, and the place where thy honour dwelleth. O destroy not my soul with the sinners, nor my life with the bloodthirsty. In whose hands is wickedness, and their right hand is full of gifts. But as for me, I will walk innocently: O deliver me, and be merciful unto me. My foot stondeth right: I will praise thee (O LORD) in the congregations.
