Judica me, Domine
Be thou my judge, O Lord, for I have walked innocently *
my trust hath been also in the Lord, therefore shall I not fall.
Examine me, O Lord, and prove me *
try out my reins and my heart.
For thy loving-kindness is ever before mine eyes *
and I will walk in thy truth.
I have not dwelt with vain persons *
neither will I have fellowship with the deceitful.
I have hated the congregation of the wicked *
and will not sit among the ungodly.
I will wash my hands in innocency, O Lord *
and so will I go to thine altar.
That I may shew the voice of thanksgiving *
and tell of all thy wondrous works.
Lord, I have loved the habitation of thy house *
and the place where thine honour dwelleth.
O shut not up my soul with the sinners *
nor my life with the blood-thirsty.
In whose hands is wickedness *
and their right hand is full of gifts.
But as for me, I will walk innocently *
O deliver me, and be merciful unto me.
My foot standeth right *
I will praise the Lord in the congregations.
Ad te, Domine
Unto thee will I cry, O Lord my strength *
think no scorn of me; lest, if thou make as though thou hearest not, I become like them that go down into the pit.
Hear the voice of my humble petitions, when I cry unto thee *
when I hold up my hands towards the mercy-seat of thy holy temple.
O pluck me not away, neither destroy me, with the ungodly and wicked doers *
which speak friendly to their neighbours, but imagine mischief in their hearts.
Reward them according to their deeds *
and according to the wickedness of their own inventions.
Recompense them after the work of their hands *
pay them that they have deserved.
For they regard not in their mind the works of the Lord, nor the operation of his hands *
therefore shall he break them down, and not build them up.
Praised be the Lord *
for he hath heard the voice of my humble petitions.
The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart hath trusted in him, and I am helped *
therefore my heart danceth for joy, and in my song will I praise him.
The Lord is my strength *
and he is the wholesome defence of his Anointed.
O save thy people, and give thy blessing unto thine inheritance *
feed them , and set them up for ever.
