Psalms 26

By David.

Judge me, Yahweh, for I have walked in my integrity.

I have trusted also in Yahweh without wavering.

2 Examine me, Yahweh, and prove me.

Try my heart and my mind.

3 For your loving kindness is before my eyes.

I have walked in your truth.

4 I have not sat with deceitful men,

neither will I go in with hypocrites.

5 I hate the assembly of evildoers,

and will not sit with the wicked.

6 I will wash my hands in innocence,

so I will go about your altar, Yahweh;

7 that I may make the voice of thanksgiving to be heard,

and tell of all your wondrous deeds.

8 Yahweh, I love the habitation of your house,

the place where your glory dwells.

9 Don’t gather my soul with sinners,

nor my life with bloodthirsty men;

10 in whose hands is wickedness,

their right hand is full of bribes.

11 But as for me, I will walk in my integrity.

Redeem me, and be merciful to me.

12 My foot stands in an even place.

In the congregations I will bless Yahweh.
