Psalm 26 LEB/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

Lexham English Bible (LEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Judge me, O Yahweh, because I have walked in my integrity, and I have trusted Yahweh and not wavered. 1 Vindicate me, O LORD, for I have led a blameless life; I have trusted in the LORD without wavering.
2 Prove me, O Yahweh, and test me. Try my {innermost being} and my {mind}. 2 Test me, O LORD, and try me, examine my heart and my mind;
3 Because your loyal love [is] before my eyes, and I walk about in your faithfulness. 3 for your love is ever before me, and I walk continually in your truth.
4 I do not sit with deceitful people, nor will I go about with hypocrites. 4 I do not sit with deceitful men, nor do I consort with hypocrites;
5 I hate [the] crowd of evildoers, and with [the] wicked I will not sit. 5 I abhor the assembly of evildoers and refuse to sit with the wicked.
6 I will wash my hands in innocence, and I will walk about your altar, O Yahweh, 6 I wash my hands in innocence, and go about your altar, O LORD,
7 to declare with a voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all your wondrous deeds. 7 proclaiming aloud your praise and telling of all your wonderful deeds.
8 O Yahweh, I love [the] dwelling of your house, and {the place where your glory abides}. 8 I love the house where you live, O LORD, the place where your glory dwells.
9 Do not destroy me with [the] 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] an evil plan, 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 will 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 level ground. In assemblies I will bless Yahweh. 12 My feet stand on level ground; in the great assembly I will praise the LORD.
