Psalms 26
1Judge me, O Lord, for I have walked in my integrity; I have trusted also in the Lord; therefore I shall not slide.2Examine me, O Lord and prove me; melt my kidneys and my heart.3For thy mercy is before my eyes, and I walk in thy truth.4I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with hypocrites.5I have hated the congregation of evil doers and will not sit with the wicked.
6I will wash my hands in innocency, so I will walk near unto thine altar, O Lord:7That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving and tell of all thy wondrous works.8Lord, I have loved the habitation of thy house and the place of the tabernacle of thy glory.9Gather not my soul with the sinners, nor my life with those who have blood on their hands:10In whose hands are wicked devices, and their right hand is full of bribes.11But as for me, I will walk in my integrity; ransom me and be merciful unto me.12I have walked uprightly; in the congregations I will bless the Lord.
