3 For none that do evil can be hidden from your knowledge. Lord, you know of the righteous deeds of your devout; where will a person hide from your knowledge, O God? 4 We are free to choose and do what we will to do right or wrong in how we live our lives; in your justice you watch mortals closely. 5 Those who do what is right save up life for themselves with the Lord, and those doing what is wrong cause their own lives to be destroyed; for the Lord's righteous judgments come down on man and household.6 To whom will you be kind, O God, except to those who appeal to the Lord? He will cleanse from sin the person who both confesses and publically acknowledges it. For all of these things we are ashamed, and we are embarrassed.
