Psalm 26 Living Bible (TLB)

26 Dismiss all the charges against me, Lord, for I have tried to keep your laws and have trusted you without wavering. Cross-examine me, O Lord, and see that this is so; test my motives and affections too. For I have taken your loving-kindness and your truth as my ideals. I do not have fellowship with tricky, two-faced men; they are false and hypocritical. I hate the sinners’ hangouts and refuse to enter them. I wash my hands to prove my innocence and come before your altar, singing a song of thanksgiving and telling about your miracles.

Lord, I love your home, this shrine where the brilliant, dazzling splendor of your presence lives.

9-10 Don’t treat me as a common sinner or murderer who plots against the innocent and demands bribes.

11 No, I am not like that, O Lord; I try to walk a straight and narrow path of doing what is right; therefore in mercy save me.

12 I publicly praise the Lord for keeping me from slipping and falling.
