Rule me rightly, O YHWH, For I have walked in my integrity. And I have trusted in YHWH, without wavering.
Examine me, O YHWH, and prove me; Try my kidneys and my heart.
For Your kindness is before my eyes, And I have walked in Your truth.
I have not sat with men of falsehood, Nor do I enter with pretenders.
I have hated the assembly of evil-doers, And I do not sit with the wrong.
I wash my hands in innocence; And I walk around Your altar, O YHWH,
To raise a voice of thanksgiving, And to declare all Your wonders.
YHWH, I have loved the abode of Your house, And the place where Your esteem dwells.
Do not gather my being together with sinners, Nor my life with bloodthirsty men,
In whose hands is a plot, And their right hand is filled with bribes.
But as for me, I walk in my integrity; Redeem me and show me favour.
My foot shall stand on a level place; In the assemblies I bless YHWH.
