Psalms 26

I Will Bless the  Lord

Of David.

a Vindicate me, O  Lord,
for I have b walked in my integrity,
and I have c trusted in the  Lord without wavering.
d Prove me, O  Lord, and try me;
test my heart and e my mind.
Hebrew  test my kidneys and my heart

For your g steadfast love is before my eyes,
and I h walk in your i faithfulness.
I do not j sit with men of k falsehood,
nor do I consort with hypocrites.
I l hate the assembly of evildoers,
and I will not sit with the wicked.
I m wash my hands in innocence
and go around your altar, O  Lord,
proclaiming thanksgiving aloud,
and telling all your n wondrous deeds.
O  Lord, I o love the habitation of your house
and the place where your glory dwells.
p Do not sweep my soul away with sinners,
nor my life with bloodthirsty men,
10 in whose hands are evil devices,
and whose right hands are full of q bribes.
11  But as for me, I shall walk in my integrity;
redeem me, and be gracious to me.
12 My foot stands on r level ground;
in s the great assembly I will bless the  Lord.
