BE THOU my judge, O Lord, for I have walked innocently : my trust hath been also in the Lord, therefore shall I not fall.
2 Examine me, O Lord, and prove me : try out my reins and my heart.
3 For thy loving-kindness is ever before mine eyes : and I will walk in thy truth.
4 I have not dwelt with vain persons : neither will I have fellowship with the deceitful.
5 I have hated the congregation of the wicked : and will not sit among the ungodly.
6 I will wash my hands in innocency, O Lord : and so will I go to thine altar.
7 That I may shew the voice of thanksgiving : and tell of all thy wondrous works.
8 Lord, I have loved the habitation of thy house : and the place where thine honour dwelleth.
9 O shut not up my soul with the sinners : nor my life with the blood-thirsty.
10 In whose hands is wickedness : and their right hand is full of gifts.
11 But as for me, I will walk innocently : O deliver me, and be merciful unto me.
12 My foot standeth right : I will praise the Lord in the congregations.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son : and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be : world without end. Amen.
