Psalm 26Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
A Psalm of David.
1 Judge me, O Lord; for I have walked in mine integrity:
I have trusted also in the Lord; therefore I shall not slide.
2 Examine me, O Lord, and prove me;
try my reins and my heart.
3 For thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes:
and I have walked in thy truth.
4 I have not sat with vain persons,
neither will I go in with dissemblers.
5 I have hated the congregation of evil doers;
and will not sit with the wicked.
6 I will wash mine hands in innocency:
so will I compass thine altar, O Lord:
7 that I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving,
and tell of all thy wondrous works.
8 Lord, I have loved the habitation of thy house,
and the place where thine honour dwelleth.
9 Gather not my soul with sinners,
nor my life with bloody men:
10 in whose hands is mischief,
and their right hand is full of bribes.
11 But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity:
redeem me, and be merciful unto me.
12 My foot standeth in an even place:
in the congregations will I bless the Lord.
