Psalm 26
World English Bible [Par] 

Vindicate Me, O Lord

1By David. Judge me, Yahweh, for I have walked in my integrity. I have trusted also in Yahweh without wavering.

2Examine me, Yahweh, and prove me. Try my heart and my mind.

3For your loving kindness is before my eyes. I have walked in your truth.

4I have not sat with deceitful men, neither will I go in with hypocrites.

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

6I will wash my hands in innocence, so I will go about your altar, Yahweh,

7that I may make the voice of thanksgiving to be heard and tell of all your wondrous deeds.

8Yahweh, I love the habitation of your house, the place where your glory dwells.

9Don’t gather my soul with sinners, nor my life with bloodthirsty men

10in whose hands is wickedness; their right hand is full of bribes.

11But as for me, I will walk in my integrity. Redeem me, and be merciful to me.

12My foot stands in an even place. In the congregations I will bless Yahweh.
