Psalm 26 CSB/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

Holman Christian Standard (CSB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Vindicate me, Lord, because I have lived with integrity and 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 Test me, Lord, and try me; examine my heart and mind. 2 Test me, O LORD, and try me, examine my heart and my mind;
3 For Your faithful love is before my eyes, and I live by Your truth. 3 for your love is ever before me, and I walk continually in your truth.
4 I do not sit with the worthless or associate with hypocrites. 4 I do not sit with deceitful men, nor do I consort with hypocrites;
5 I hate a crowd of evildoers, and I do not sit with the wicked. 5 I abhor the assembly of evildoers and refuse to sit with the wicked.
6 I wash my hands in innocence and go around Your altar, Lord, 6 I wash my hands in innocence, and go about your altar, O LORD,
7 raising my voice in thanksgiving and telling about Your wonderful works. 7 proclaiming aloud your praise and telling of all your wonderful deeds.
8 Lord, I love the house where You dwell, the place where Your glory resides. 8 I love the house where you live, O LORD, the place where your glory dwells.
9 Do not destroy me along with sinners, or my life along with men of bloodshed 9 Do not take away my soul along with sinners, my life with bloodthirsty men,
10 in whose hands are evil schemes, and whose right hands are filled with bribes. 10 in whose hands are wicked schemes, whose right hands are full of bribes.
11 But I live with 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 level ground; I will praise the Lord in the assemblies. 12 My feet stand on level ground; in the great assembly I will praise the LORD.
