Psalm 26

Psalm 26

A Psalm of David.
1Judge me, O LORD; for I have walked in mine integrity:
I have trusted also in the LORD; therefore I shall not slide.
2Examine me, O LORD, and prove me;
Try my reins and my heart.
3For thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes:
And I have walked in thy truth.
4I have not sat with vain persons,
Neither will I go in with dissemblers.
5I have hated the congregation of evil doers;
And will not sit with the wicked.
6I will wash mine hands in innocency:
So will I compass thine altar, O LORD:
7That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving,
And tell of all thy wondrous works.
8 LORD, I have loved the habitation of thy house,
And the place where thine honour dwelleth.
9Gather not my soul with sinners,
Nor my life with bloody men:
10In whose hands is mischief,
And their right hand is full of bribes.
11But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity:
Redeem me, and be merciful unto me.
12My foot standeth in an even place:
In the congregations will I bless the LORD.
