Psalms 26 - NIV

Of David.


Vindicate me, Lord,
for I have led a blameless life;
I have trusted in the Lord
and have not faltered.

2 Test me, Lord, and try me,
examine my heart and my mind;

3 for I have always been mindful of your unfailing love
and have lived in reliance on your faithfulness.


I do not sit with the deceitful,
nor do I associate with hypocrites.

5 I abhor the assembly of evildoers
and refuse to sit with the wicked.

6 I wash my hands in innocence,
and go about your altar, Lord,

7 proclaiming aloud your praise
and telling of all your wonderful deeds.


Lord, I love the house where you live,
the place where your glory dwells.

9 Do not take away my soul along with sinners,
my life with those who are bloodthirsty,

10 in whose hands are wicked schemes,
whose right hands are full of bribes.

11 I lead a blameless life;
deliver me and be merciful to me.


My feet stand on level ground;
in the great congregation I will praise the Lord.
