David says he has walked in integrity and obedience-He loves the Lord's house.


  1 Judge me, O Lord; for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in the Lord; therefore I shall not slide.

  2 Examine me, O Lord, and prove me; try my reins and my heart.

  3 For thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes: and I have walked in thy truth.

  4 I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with dissemblers.

  5 I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.

  6 I will wash mine hands in innocency: so will I compass thine altar, O Lord:

  7 That I may publish with 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 Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life with bloody men:

  10 In whose hands is mischief, and their right hand is full of bribes.

  11 But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity: redeem me, and be merciful unto me.

  12 My foot standeth in an even place: in the congregations will I bless the Lord.
