Psalm 26
Legacy Standard Bible►► 

Give Justice to Me, O Yahweh

Of David.

1Give justice to me, O Yahweh, for I have walked in my integrity,

And I have trusted in Yahweh; I will not waver.

2Test me, O Yahweh, and try me;

Refine my [†]mind and my heart.

3For Your lovingkindness is before my eyes,

And I have walked in Your [†]truth.

4I do not sit with worthless men,

And I will not go with [†]pretenders.

5I hate the assembly of evildoers,

And I will not sit with the wicked.

6I shall wash my hands in innocence,

So I will go around Your altar, O Yahweh,

7In order to proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving

And to recount all Your [†]wondrous deeds.

8O Yahweh, I love the habitation of Your house

And the place [†]where Your glory dwells.

9Do not [†]take my soul away along with sinners,

Nor 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 gracious to me.

12My foot stands on level ground;

In the congregations I shall bless Yahweh.

2 Lit kidneys, figurative for inner man
3 Or faithfulness
4 Or dissemblers, hypocrites
7 Or miracles
8 Lit of the tabernacle of Your glory
9 Lit gather
