26 Lord, defend me because I have lived an innocent life. I have trusted the Lord and never doubted. 2 Lord, try me and test me; look closely into my heart and mind. 3 I see your love, and I live by your truth. 4 I do not spend time with liars, nor do I make friends with those who hide their sin. 5 I hate the company of evil people, and I won’t sit with the wicked. 6 I wash my hands to show I am innocent, and I come to your altar, Lord. 7 I raise my voice in praise and tell of all the miracles you have done. 8 Lord, I love the Temple where you live, where your glory is. 9 Do not kill me with those sinners or take my life with those murderers. 10 Evil is in their hands, and they do wrong for money. 11 But I have lived an innocent life, so save me and have mercy on me. 12 I stand in a safe place. Lord, I praise you in the great meeting.
