¶ 1 A Psalme of David. Judge me, O Lord, for I haue walked in mine innocency: my trust hath bene also in the Lord: therefore shall I not slide.
2 Proue me, O Lord, and trie mee: examine my reines, and mine heart.
3 For thy louing kindnesse is before mine eyes: therefore haue I walked in thy trueth.
4 I haue not hanted with vaine persons, neither kept companie with the dissemblers.
5 I haue hated the assemblie of the euill, and haue not companied with the wicked.
6 I will wash mine handes in innocencie, O Lord, and compasse thine altar,
7 That I may declare with the voyce of thankesgiuing, and set foorth all thy wonderous woorkes.
8 O Lord, I haue loued the habitation of thine house, and the place where thine honour dwelleth.
9 Gather not my soule with the sinners, nor my life with the bloodie men:
10 In whose handes is wickednes, and their right hand is full of bribes.
11 But I will walke in mine innocencie: redeeme me therefore, and be mercifull vnto me.
12 My foote standeth in vprightnesse: I will praise thee, O Lord, in the Congregations.
