Tehillim (Psalms) 26
1Rule me rightly, O יהוה, For I have walked in my integrity. And I have trusted in יהוה, without wavering.
2Examine me, O יהוה, and prove me; Try my kidneys and my heart.
3For Your loving-commitment is before my eyes, And I have walked in Your truth.
4I have not sat with men of falsehood, Nor do I enter with pretenders.
5I have hated the assembly of evil-doers, And I do not sit with the wrong.
6I wash my hands in innocence; And I walk around Your slaughter-place, O יהוה,
7To raise a voice of thanksgiving, And to declare all Your wonders.
8יהוה, I have loved the abode of Your house, And the place where Your esteem dwells.
9Do not gather my being together with sinners, Nor my life with bloodthirsty men,
10In whose hands is a plot, And their right hand is filled with bribes.
11But as for me, I walk in my integrity; Redeem me and show me favour.
12My foot shall stand on a level place; In the assemblies I bless יהוה.
