26 Show that I am right, Lord! I stay true to myself, and I have trusted you without doubting. 2 Test my thoughts and find out what I am like. 3 I never forget your kindness, and I am always faithful to you.[a] 4 I don’t spend my time with worthless liars 5 or go with evil crowds.
6 I wash my hands, Lord, to show my innocence, and I worship at your altar, 7 while gratefully singing about your wonders. 8 I love the temple where you live, and where your glory shines. 9 Don’t sweep me away, as you do sinners. Don’t punish me with death as you do those people who are brutal 10 or full of meanness or who bribe others. 11 I stay true to myself. Be kind and rescue me.
12 Now I stand on solid ground! And when your people meet, I will praise you, Lord.
26.3I am. . . to you: Or “I trust your faithfulness.”
