Psalms 26

A Psalm of David. Judge me, O LORD, for I have walked in mine integrity, and I have trusted in the LORD without wavering. Examine me, O LORD, and try me; test my reins and my heart. For Thy mercy is before mine eyes; and I have walked in Thy truth. I have not sat with men of falsehood; neither will I go in with dissemblers. I hate the gathering of evil doers, and will not sit with the wicked.

I will wash my hands in innocency; so will I compass Thine altar, O LORD, That I may make the voice of thanksgiving to be heard, and tell of all Thy wondrous works. LORD, I love the habitation of Thy house, and the place where Thy glory dwelleth. Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life with men of blood; 10 In whose hands is craftiness, and their right hand is full of bribes. 11 But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity; redeem me, and be gracious unto me. 12 My foot standeth in an even place; in the congregations will I bless the LORD.
