Psalm 26
NASB 1977►► 
Protestation of Integrity and Prayer for Protection.

A Psalm of David.

     1Vindicate me, O LORD, for I have walked in my integrity;
            And I have trusted in the LORD without wavering.

     2Examine me, O LORD, and try me;
            Test my mind and my heart.

     3For Thy lovingkindness is before my eyes,
            And I have walked in Thy truth.

     4I do not sit with deceitful men,
            Nor will I go with pretenders.

     5I hate the assembly of evildoers,
            And I will not sit with the wicked.

     6I shall wash my hands in innocence,
            And I will go about Thine altar, O LORD,

     7That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving,
            And declare all Thy wonders.

     8O LORD, I love the habitation of Thy house,
            And the place where Thy 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 a level place;
            In the congregations I shall bless the LORD.
