Psalms 26

Protestation of Integrity and Prayer for Protection.

A Psalm of David.

Lit Judge
,
b Vindicate me, O  Lord, for I have c walked in my integrity,
And I have d trusted in the  Lord
Lit I do not slide
,
f without wavering.
g Examine me, O  Lord, and try me;
h Test my
Lit kidneys, figurative for inner man
mind and my heart.
For Your j lovingkindness is before my eyes,
And I have k walked in Your
Or faithfulness
truth.
I do not m sit with
Or worthless men; lit men of falsehood
deceitful men,
Nor will I go with
Or dissemblers, hypocrites
,
p pretenders.
I q hate the assembly of evildoers,
And I will not sit with the wicked.
I shall r wash my hands in innocence,
And I will go about s Your altar, O  Lord,
That I may proclaim with the voice of t thanksgiving
And declare all Your
Or miracles
wonders.

O  Lord, I v love the habitation of Your house
And the place
Lit of the tabernacle of Your glory
where Your x glory dwells.
y Do not
Lit gather
take my soul away along with sinners,
Nor my life with aa men of bloodshed,
10 In whose hands is a ab wicked scheme,
And whose right hand is full of ac bribes.
11 But as for me, I shall ad walk in my integrity;
ae Redeem me, and be gracious to me.
12  af My foot stands on a ag level place;
In the ah congregations I shall bless the  Lord.
