for I have walked in my integrity,
and I have trusted in the Lord without wavering.
test my heart and my mind.
and I walk in faithfulness to thee.
nor do I consort with dissemblers;
and I will not sit with the wicked.
and go about thy altar, O Lord,
and telling all thy wondrous deeds.
and the place where thy glory dwells.
nor my life with bloodthirsty men,
and whose right hands are full of bribes.
redeem me, and be gracious to me.
in the great congregation I will bless the Lord.
