Psalm 26 NKJV/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

New King James Version (NKJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 A Psalm of David. Vindicate me, O Lord, For I have walked in my integrity. I have also trusted in the Lord; I shall not slip. 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 prove me; Try 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 have not sat with idolatrous mortals, Nor will I go in with hypocrites. 4 I do not sit with deceitful men, nor do I consort with hypocrites;
5 I have hated the assembly of evildoers, And 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; So 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 tell of all Your wondrous works. 7 proclaiming aloud your praise and telling of all your wonderful deeds.
8 Lord, I have loved 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 gather my soul with sinners, Nor my life with bloodthirsty men, 9 Do not take away my soul along with sinners, my life with bloodthirsty men,
10 In whose hands is a sinister 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 will walk in my integrity; Redeem me and be merciful to me. 11 But I lead a blameless life; redeem me and be merciful to me.
12 My foot stands in an even place; In the congregations I will bless the Lord. 12 My feet stand on level ground; in the great assembly I will praise the LORD.
