Psalms 26

I Will Bless the Lord

Of David.

1 aVindicate me, O Lord,
for I have bwalked in my integrity,
and I have ctrusted in the Lord without wavering.
2 dProve me, O Lord, and try me;
test my heart and emy mind.
Hebrew  test my kidneys and my heart

3For your gsteadfast love is before my eyes,
and I hwalk in your ifaithfulness.
4I do not jsit with men of kfalsehood,
nor do I consort with hypocrites.
5I lhate the assembly of evildoers,
and I will not sit with the wicked.
6I mwash my hands in innocence
and go around your altar, O Lord,
7proclaiming thanksgiving aloud,
and telling all your nwondrous deeds.
8O Lord, I olove the habitation of your house
and the place where your glory dwells.
9 pDo not sweep my soul away with sinners,
nor my life with bloodthirsty men,
10in whose hands are evil devices,
and whose right hands are full of qbribes.
11But as for me, I shall walk in my integrity;
redeem me, and be gracious to me.
12My foot stands on rlevel ground;
in sthe great assembly I will bless the Lord.
