Psalm 26

Protestation of Integrity and Prayer for Protection.

A Psalm of David.

1 Vindicate me, O LORD, for I have walked in my integrity,
          And I have trusted in the LORD without wavering.

2 Examine me, O LORD, and try me;
          Test my mind and my heart.

3 For Your lovingkindness is before my eyes,
          And I have walked in Your truth.

4 I do not sit with deceitful men,
          Nor will I go with pretenders.

5 I hate the assembly of evildoers,
          And I will not sit with the wicked.

6 I shall wash my hands in innocence,
          And I will go about Your altar, O LORD,

7 That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving
          And declare all Your wonders.

8 O LORD, I love the habitation of Your house
          And the place where Your glory dwells.

9 Do not take my soul away along with sinners,
          Nor my life with men of bloodshed,

10 In whose hands is a wicked scheme,
          And whose right hand is full of bribes.

11 But as for me, I shall walk in my integrity;
          Redeem me, and be gracious to me.

12 My foot stands on a level place;
          In the congregations I shall bless the LORD.
