Psalms 26

Protestation of Integrity and Prayer for Protection.

A Psalm of David.

1
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.
2 g  Examine me, O  Lord, and try me;
h  Test my
Lit kidneys, figurative for inner man
mind and my heart.
3For Your j  lovingkindness is before my eyes,
And I have k  walked in Your
Or faithfulness
truth.
4I do not m  sit with
Or worthless men; lit men of falsehood
deceitful men,
Nor will I go with
Or dissemblers, hypocrites
,
p  pretenders.
5I q  hate the assembly of evildoers,
And I will not sit with the wicked.
6I shall r  wash my hands in innocence,
And I will go about s  Your altar, O  Lord,
7That I may proclaim with the voice of t  thanksgiving
And declare all Your
Or miracles
wonders.

8O  Lord, I v  love the habitation of Your house
And the place
Lit of the tabernacle of Your glory
where Your x  glory dwells.
9 y  Do not
Lit gather
take my soul away along with sinners,
Nor my life with aa  men of bloodshed,
10In whose hands is a ab  wicked scheme,
And whose right hand is full of ac  bribes.
11But 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.
