The Prayer of an Innocent Person

26 Show that I am right, Lord!
    I stay true to myself,
    and I have trusted you
    without doubting.
Test my thoughts and find out
    what I am like.
I never forget your kindness,
    and I am always faithful
    to you.[a]
I don’t spend my time
with worthless liars
    or go with evil crowds.

I wash my hands, Lord,
    to show my innocence,
and I worship at your altar,
    while gratefully singing
    about your wonders.
I love the temple
where you live,
    and where
    your glory shines.
