Protestation of Integrity and Prayer for Protection.

A Psalm of David.

1 1aVindicate me, O Lord, for I have bwalked in my integrity,

And I have ctrusted in the Lord 2dwithout wavering.

2 aExamine me, O Lord, and try me;

bTest my 1mind and my heart.

3 For Your alovingkindness is before my eyes,

And I have bwalked in Your 1truth.

4 I do not asit with 1deceitful men,

Nor will I go with 2bpretenders.

5 I ahate the assembly of evildoers,

And I will not sit with the wicked.

6 I shall awash my hands in innocence,

And I will go about bYour altar, O Lord,

7 That I may proclaim with the voice of athanksgiving

And declare all Your 1wonders.

8 O Lord, I alove the habitation of Your house

And the place 1where Your bglory dwells.

9 aDo not 1take my soul away along with sinners,

Nor my life with bmen of bloodshed,

10 In whose hands is a awicked scheme,

And whose right hand is full of bbribes.

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

bRedeem me, and be gracious to me.

12 aMy foot stands on a blevel place;

In the ccongregations I shall bless the Lord.


About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update

The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
