1 Lord, when you hand down your sentence, let it be in my favor. I have lived without blame. I have trusted in the Lord. I have never doubted him. 2 Lord, test me. Try me out. Look deep down into my heart and mind. 3 I have always remembered your love that never fails. I have always depended on the fact that you are faithful. 4 I don’t spend time with people who tell lies. I don’t keep company with pretenders. 5 I hate to be with a group of sinful people. I refuse to spend time with those who are evil. 6 I wash my hands to show that I’m not guilty. Lord, I come near your altar. 7 I shout my praise to you. I tell about all the wonderful things you have done. 8 Lord, I love the house where you live. I love the place where your glory is.
9 Don’t destroy me together with sinners. Don’t take away my life along with murderers. 10 Their hands are always planning to do evil. Their right hands are full of money that has bought their help. 11 But I live without blame. Save me from harm and treat me with kindness.
12 My feet stand on level ground. In the whole community I will praise the Lord.
