The LORD judges the peoples; vindicate me, LORD, according to my righteousness and my integrity.
Vindicate me, LORD, my God, in keeping with Your righteousness, and do not let them rejoice over me.
Vindicate me, God, and defend my cause against an ungodly nation; rescue me from the deceitful and unjust man.
[For the choir director: with stringed instruments. A Davidic Maskil. When the Ziphites went and said to Saul, "Is David not hiding among us?"] God, save me by Your name, and vindicate me by Your might!
May the LORD be judge and decide between you and me. May He take notice and plead my case and deliver me from you."
It is of little importance that I should be evaluated by you or by a human court. In fact, I don't even evaluate myself.
For I am not conscious of anything against myself, but I am not justified by this. The One who evaluates me is the Lord.
Therefore don't judge anything prematurely, before the Lord comes, who will both bring to light what is hidden in darkness and reveal the intentions of the hearts. And then praise will come to each one from God.
Now, brothers, I have applied these things to myself and Apollos for your benefit, so that you may learn from us the saying: "Nothing beyond what is written." The purpose is that none of you will be inflated with pride in favor of one person over another.
But I live with integrity; redeem me and be gracious to me.
The one who lives honestly, practices righteousness, and acknowledges the truth in his heart--
May integrity and uprightness keep me, for I wait for You.
"Please LORD, remember how I have walked before You faithfully and wholeheartedly and have done what is good in Your sight." And Hezekiah wept bitterly.
The one who lives with integrity is righteous; his children who come after him will be happy.
For our boast is this: the testimony of our conscience that we have conducted ourselves in the world, and especially toward you, with God-given sincerity and purity, not by fleshly wisdom but by God's grace.
Offer sacrifices in righteousness and trust in the LORD.
My God, I trust in You. Do not let me be disgraced; do not let my enemies gloat over me.
The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped. Therefore my heart rejoices, and I praise Him with my song.
But I trust in You, LORD; I say, "You are my God."
The fear of man is a snare, but the one who trusts in the LORD is protected.
For the king relies on the LORD; through the faithful love of the Most High he is not shaken.
The instruction of his God is in his heart; his steps do not falter.
He alone is my rock and my salvation, my stronghold; I will never be shaken.
He alone is my rock and my salvation, my stronghold; I will not be shaken.
If I say, "My foot is slipping," Your faithful love will support me, LORD.
He will not allow your foot to slip; your Protector will not slumber.
The LORD will protect you from all harm; He will protect your life.
The LORD will protect your coming and going both now and forever.
He guards the steps of His faithful ones, but the wicked are silenced in darkness, for a man does not prevail by [his own] strength.
who are being protected by God's power through faith for a salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.
Therefore, brothers, make every effort to confirm your calling and election, because if you do these things you will never stumble.
