Psalm 26

I Will Bless the Lord

Of David.

1 1Vindicate me, O LORD, for I have 2walked in my integrity, and I have 3trusted in the LORD without wavering.
2 4Prove me, O LORD, and try me; test my heart and 5my mind.a
3 For your 6steadfast love is before my eyes, and I 7walk in your 8faithfulness.
4 I do not 9sit with men of 10falsehood, nor do I consort with hypocrites.
5 I 11hate the assembly of evildoers, and I will not sit with the wicked.
6 I 12wash my hands in innocence and go around your altar, O LORD,
7 proclaiming thanksgiving aloud, and telling all your 13wondrous deeds.
8 O LORD, I 14love the habitation of your house and the place where your glory dwells.
9 15Do not sweep my soul away with sinners, nor my life with bloodthirsty men,
10 in whose hands are evil devices, and whose right hands are full of 16bribes.
11 But as for me, I shall walk in my integrity; redeem me, and be gracious to me.
12 My foot stands on 17level ground; in 18the great assembly I will bless the LORD.
