Psalm 26

A Psalm of David.

Judge me, O Lord,
    for I have walked in my integrity.
I have trusted in the Lord;
    I will not slip.
Examine me, O Lord, and test me;
    try my affections and my heart.
For Your lovingkindness is before my eyes,
    and I have walked in Your truth.

I have not sat with the worthless,
    nor will I go with hypocrites.
I have hated the congregation of evildoers,
    and will not sit with the wicked.
I will wash my hands in innocence;
    thus I will go around Your altar, O Lord,
that I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving,
    and tell of all Your wondrous works.
Lord, I have loved the refuge of Your house,
    and the place where Your honor dwells.
Do not gather my soul with sinners,
    nor my life with murderers,
10 in whose hands is wickedness,
    and their right hand is full of bribes.
11 But as for me, I will walk in my integrity;
    redeem me and be gracious to me.

12 My foot stands in an even place;
    with the congregations I will bless the Lord.
