Psalm 26

A Psalm of David
1 Judge me, O Jehovah, for I have walked in my integrity. I have trusted also in Jehovah; I shall not slip.
2 Examine me, O Jehovah, and prove me; purify my being and my heart.
3 For Your lovingkindness is before my eyes, and I have walked in Your Truth.
4 I have not sat with men of vanity, neither will I go in with hypocrites.
5 I have hated the assembly of evildoers, and will not sit with the wicked.
6 I will wash my hands in innocence; thus I will go around Your altar, O Jehovah,
7 so that I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all Your marvelous works.
8 Jehovah, I have loved the dwelling place of Your house, and the place where Your honor dwells.
9 Do not take away my soul with sinners, nor my life with men of blood,
10 in whose hands is an evil plot, and their right hand is full of bribes.
11 But I will walk in my integrity; redeem me and be merciful unto me.
12 My foot stands in an even place; in the congregations I will bless Jehovah.
