Prayer for Vindication
1 Vindicate me, Lord, because I have lived with integrity and have trusted in the Lord without wavering. 2 Test me, Lord, and try me; examine my heart and mind. 3 For Your faithful love is before my eyes, and I live by Your truth.
4 I do not sit with the worthless or associate with hypocrites. 5 I hate a crowd of evildoers, and I do not sit with the wicked. 6 I wash my hands[a] in innocence and go around Your altar, Lord, 7 raising my voice in thanksgiving and telling about Your wonderful works.
8 Lord, I love the house where You dwell, the place where Your glory resides. 9 Do not destroy me along with sinners, or my life along with men of bloodshed 10 in whose hands are evil schemes and whose right hands are filled with bribes.
11 But I live with integrity; redeem me and be gracious to me. 12 My foot stands on level ground; I will praise the Lord in the assemblies.
