A Prayer for Divine Scrutiny and Redemption

A Psalm of David.
  1Vindicate me, O Lord,
   For I have walked in my integrity.
   I have also trusted in the Lord;
   I shall not slip.
   2Examine me, O Lord, and prove me;
   Try my mind and my heart.
   3For Your lovingkindness is before my eyes,
   And I have walked in Your truth.
   4I have not sat with idolatrous mortals,
   Nor will I go in with hypocrites.
   5I have hated the assembly of evildoers,
   And will not sit with the wicked.
  6I will wash my hands in innocence;
   So I will go about Your altar, O Lord,
   7That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving,
   And tell of all Your wondrous works.
   8Lord, I have loved the habitation of Your house,
   And the place where Your glory dwells.
  9Do not gather my soul with sinners,
   Nor my life with bloodthirsty men,
   10In whose hands is a sinister scheme,
   And whose right hand is full of bribes.
  11But as for me, I will walk in my integrity;
   Redeem me and be merciful to me.
   12My foot stands in an even place;
   In the congregations I will bless the Lord.
