Psalm 26 World English Bible (WEB)

By David.

26 Judge me, Yahweh, for I have walked in my integrity.
    I have trusted also in Yahweh without wavering.
Examine me, Yahweh, and prove me.
    Try my heart and my mind.
For your loving kindness is before my eyes.
    I have walked in your truth.
I have not sat with deceitful men,
    neither will I go in with hypocrites.
I hate the assembly of evildoers,
    and will not sit with the wicked.
I will wash my hands in innocence,
    so I will go about your altar, Yahweh;
    that I may make the voice of thanksgiving to be heard,
    and tell of all your wondrous deeds.
Yahweh, I love the habitation of your house,
    the place where your glory dwells.
Don’t gather my soul with sinners,
    nor my life with bloodthirsty men;
10     in whose hands is wickedness,
    their right hand is full of bribes.

11 But as for me, I will walk in my integrity.
    Redeem me, and be merciful to me.
12 My foot stands in an even place.
    In the congregations I will bless Yahweh.

Psalm 26 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Protestation of Integrity and Prayer for Protection.

A Psalm of David.

26 [a]Vindicate me, O Lord, for I have walked in my integrity,
And I have trusted in the Lord [b]without wavering.
Examine me, O Lord, and try me;
Test my [c]mind and my heart.
For Your lovingkindness is before my eyes,
And I have walked in Your [d]truth.
I do not sit with [e]deceitful men,
Nor will I go with [f]pretenders.
I hate the assembly of evildoers,
And I will not sit with the wicked.
I shall wash my hands in innocence,
And I will go about Your altar, O Lord,
That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving
And declare all Your [g]wonders.

O Lord, I love the habitation of Your house
And the place [h]where Your glory dwells.
Do not [i]take my soul away along with sinners,
Nor my life with men of bloodshed,
10 In whose hands is a wicked scheme,
And whose right hand is full of bribes.
11 But as for me, I shall walk in my integrity;
Redeem me, and be gracious to me.
12 My foot stands on a level place;
In the congregations I shall bless the Lord.
