Bring to an end the violence of the wicked and make the righteous secure-- you, the righteous God who probes minds and hearts.
Test me, LORD, and try me, examine my heart and my mind;
and with you, Lord, is unfailing love"; and, "You reward everyone according to what they have done."
For the director of music. Of David. A psalm. You have searched me, LORD, and you know me.
But you, LORD Almighty, who judge righteously and test the heart and mind, let me see your vengeance on them, for to you I have committed my cause.
"I the LORD search the heart and examine the mind, to reward each person according to their conduct, according to what their deeds deserve."
For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father's glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what they have done.
