Psalm 26 NAS/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

New American Standard (NAS) New International Version (NIV)
1 Vindicate me, O LORD , for I have walked in my integrity, And I have trusted in the LORD without wavering. 1 Vindicate me, O LORD, for I have led a blameless life; I have trusted in the LORD without wavering.
2 Examine me, O LORD , and try me; Test my mind and my heart. 2 Test me, O LORD, and try me, examine my heart and my mind;
3 For Your lovingkindness is before my eyes, And I have walked in Your truth. 3 for your love is ever before me, and I walk continually in your truth.
4 I do not sit with deceitful men, Nor will I go with pretenders. 4 I do not sit with deceitful men, nor do I consort with hypocrites;
5 I hate the assembly of evildoers, And I will not sit with the wicked. 5 I abhor the assembly of evildoers and refuse to sit with the wicked.
6 I shall wash my hands in innocence, And I will go about Your altar, O LORD , 6 I wash my hands in innocence, and go about your altar, O LORD,
7 That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving And declare all Your wonders. 7 proclaiming aloud your praise and telling of all your wonderful deeds.
8 O LORD , I love the habitation of Your house And the place where Your glory dwells. 8 I love the house where you live, O LORD, the place where your glory dwells.
9 Do not take my soul away along with sinners, Nor my life with men of bloodshed, 9 Do not take away my soul along with sinners, my life with bloodthirsty men,
10 In whose hands is a wicked scheme, And whose right hand is full of bribes. 10 in whose hands are wicked schemes, whose right hands are full of bribes.
11 But as for me, I shall walk in my integrity; Redeem me, and be gracious to me. 11 But I lead a blameless life; redeem me and be merciful to me.
12 My foot stands on a level place; In the congregations I shall bless the LORD . 12 My feet stand on level ground; in the great assembly I will praise the LORD.
