26 Declare me innocent, O Lord, because I do what is right and trust you completely. 2 Examine me and test me, Lord; judge my desires and thoughts. 3 Your constant love is my guide; your faithfulness always leads me.[b]
4 I do not keep company with worthless people; I have nothing to do with hypocrites. 5 I hate the company of the evil and avoid the wicked.
6 Lord, I wash my hands to show that I am innocent and march in worship around your altar. 7 I sing a hymn of thanksgiving and tell of all your wonderful deeds.
8 I love the house where you live, O Lord, the place where your glory dwells. 9 Do not destroy me with the sinners; spare me from the fate of murderers— 10 those who do evil all the time and are always ready to take bribes.
11 As for me, I do what is right; be merciful to me and save me!
12 I am safe from all dangers; in the assembly of his people I praise the Lord.
