Psalm 26 CJB/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) New International Version (NIV)
1 By David: Vindicate me, ADONAI, for I have lived a blameless life; unwaveringly I trust in ADONAI. 1 Vindicate me, O LORD, for I have led a blameless life; I have trusted in the LORD without wavering.
2 Examine me, ADONAI, test me, search my mind and heart. 2 Test me, O LORD, and try me, examine my heart and my mind;
3 For your grace is there before my eyes, and I live my life by your truth. 3 for your love is ever before me, and I walk continually in your truth.
4 I have not sat with worthless folks, I won't consort with hypocrites, 4 I do not sit with deceitful men, nor do I consort with hypocrites;
5 I hate the company of evildoers, I will not sit with the wicked. 5 I abhor the assembly of evildoers and refuse to sit with the wicked.
6 I will wash my hands in innocence and walk around your altar, ADONAI, 6 I wash my hands in innocence, and go about your altar, O LORD,
7 lifting my voice in thanks and proclaiming all your wonders. 7 proclaiming aloud your praise and telling of all your wonderful deeds.
8 ADONAI, I love the house where you live, the place where your glory abides. 8 I love the house where you live, O LORD, the place where your glory dwells.
9 Don't include me with sinners or my life with the bloodthirsty. 9 Do not take away my soul along with sinners, my life with bloodthirsty men,
10 In their hands are evil schemes; their right hands are full of bribes. 10 in whose hands are wicked schemes, whose right hands are full of bribes.
11 As for me, I will live a blameless life. Redeem me and show me favor. 11 But I lead a blameless life; redeem me and be merciful to me.
12 My feet are planted on level ground; in the assemblies I will bless ADONAI. 12 My feet stand on level ground; in the great assembly I will praise the LORD.
