Psalm 26

A Psalm of David. 1Judge me, O LORD, for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in the LORD without wavering.

2Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my reins and my heart.

3For thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes; and I have walked in thy truth.

4I have not sat with vain persons; neither will I go in with dissemblers.

5I hate the congregation of evil-doers, and will not sit with the wicked.

6I will wash mine hands in innocency; so will I compass thine altar, O LORD:

7That I may make the voice of thanksgiving to be heard, and tell of all thy wondrous works.

8LORD, I love the habitation of thy house, and the place where thy glory dwelleth.

9Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life with men of blood:

10In whose hands is mischief, and their right hand is full of bribes.

11But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity: redeem me, and be merciful unto me.

12My foot standeth in an even place: in the congregations will I bless the LORD.
