Why does it have strange spelling?
Dauid resorteth vnto God, in confidence of his integritie.
[A Psalme of Dauid.] Iudge me, O Lord, for I haue walked in mine integritie: I haue trusted also in the Lord: therfore I shall not slide.
Examine me, O Lord, and proue me; try my reines and my heart.2
For thy louing kindnesse is before mine eyes: and I haue walked in thy trueth.
I haue not sate with vaine persons, neither will I goe in with dissemblers.4
I haue hated the congregation of euill doers: and will not sit with the wicked.
I will wash mine hands in innocencie: so will I compasse thine Altar, O Lord:
That I may publish with the voyce of thankesgiuing, and tell of all thy wonderous workes.
Lord, I haue loued the habitation of thy house, and the place where thine honour dwelleth.8
Gather not my soule with sinners, nor my life with bloody men.9
In whose hands is mischiefe: and their right hand is full of bribes.10
But as for mee, I will walke in mine integritie: redeeme me, and bee mercifull vnto me.
My foot standeth in an euen place: in the congregations will I blesse the Lord.
