Psalms 26


The LORD Sets the Hearts on Fire

A psalm to David.

1Judge me, O  lord! for I [2in 3my innocence 1went], and [2upon 3the 4  lord 1hoping]. In no way should I weaken. 2Try me, O  lord, and test me! Set on fire my kidneys and my heart! 3For your mercy [2before 3my eyes 1is]; and I was well-pleased in your truth. 4I sat not with the sanhedrin of folly; and with ones acting unlawfully in no way shall I enter. 5I detested the assembly of ones doing wickedness; and with the impious in no way shall I sit. 6I shall wash [2in 3innocent things 1my hands], and I shall encircle your altar, O  lord, 7 to hear my voice of praise of you, and to describe all your wonders. 8O  lord, I loved the beauty of your house, and the place of the tent of your glory. 9You should not destroy together [2with 3the impious 1my soul], nor [2with 3the men 4of blood 1my life], 10in whose hands are lawless deeds, and their right hand was filled of bribes. 11But I [2in 3my innocence 1was gone]. Ransom me, and show mercy on me! 12 My foot stands in straightness. In the assemblies I shall bless you, O  lord.
