Psalms 26

"Vindicate Me, O LORD"

1 Of David. Vindicate me, O LORD! For I have walked with integrity; I have trusted in the LORD without wavering. 2 Test me, O LORD, and try me; examine my heart
Hebrew my kidneys
and mind.
3 For Your loving devotion is before my eyes, and I have walked in Your truth. 4 I do not sit with deceitful men, nor keep company with hypocrites. 5 I hate the mob of evildoers, and refuse to sit with the wicked. 6 I wash my hands in innocence that I may come near Your altar, O LORD, 7 to raise my voice in thanksgiving and declare all Your wonderful works. 8 O LORD, I love the house where You dwell, the place where Your glory resides. 9 Do not take my soul away with sinners, or my life with men of bloodshed, 10 in whose hands are wicked schemes, whose right hands are full of bribes. 11 But I will walk with integrity; redeem me and be merciful to me. 12 My feet stand on level ground; in the congregations I will bless the LORD.
