Psalm 26
Amplified Bible Par ▾ 

Protestation of Integrity and Prayer for Protection.

A Psalm of David.

1Vindicate me, O LORD, for I have walked in my integrity;

I have [relied on and] trusted [confidently] in the LORD without wavering and I shall not slip.

2Examine me, O LORD, and try me;

Test my heart and my mind.

3For Your lovingkindness is before my eyes,

And I have walked [faithfully] in Your truth.

4I do not sit with deceitful or unethical or worthless men,

Nor seek companionship with pretenders (self-righteous hypocrites).

5I hate the company of evildoers,

And will not sit with the wicked.

6I will wash my hands in innocence,

And I will go about Your altar, O LORD,

7That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving

And declare all Your wonders.

8O LORD, I love the habitation of Your house

And the place where Your glory dwells.

9Do not sweep my soul away with sinners,

Nor [sweep away] my life with men of bloodshed,

10In whose hands is a wicked scheme,

And whose right hand is full of bribes.

11But as for me, I shall walk in my integrity;

Redeem me and be merciful and gracious to me.

12My foot stands on a level place;

In the congregations I will bless the LORD.
