A Protestation of Integrity
261 Judge me, Yahweh, for I have walked in my integrity.
I have trusted also in Yahweh without wavering. 2 Examine me, Yahweh, and prove me.
Try my heart and my mind. 3 For your loving kindness is before my eyes.
I have walked in your truth. 4 I have not sat with deceitful men,
neither will I go in with hypocrites. 5 I hate the assembly of evildoers,
and will not sit with the wicked.
6 I will wash my hands in innocence,
so I will go about your altar, Yahweh; 7 that I may make the voice of thanksgiving to be heard,
and tell of all your wondrous works. 8 Yahweh, I love the habitation of your house,
the place where your glory dwells. 9 Don’t gather my soul with sinners,
nor my life with bloodthirsty men; 10 in whose hands is wickedness,
their right hand is full of bribes. 11 But as for me, I will walk in my integrity.
Redeem me, and be merciful to me. 12 My foot stands in an even place.
In the congregations I will bless Yahweh.
