Psalm 26
GOD'S WORD® Translation

1[By David.] Judge me favorably, O LORD, because I have walked with integrity and I have trusted you without wavering.

2Examine me, O LORD, and test me. Look closely into my heart and mind.

3I see your mercy in front of me. I walk in the light of your truth.

4I did not sit with liars, and I will not be found among hypocrites.

5I have hated the mob of evildoers and will not sit with wicked people.

6I will wash my hands in innocence. I will walk around your altar, O LORD,

7so that I may loudly sing a hymn of thanksgiving and tell about all your miracles.

8O LORD, I love the house where you live, the place where your glory dwells.

9Do not sweep away my soul along with hardened sinners or my life along with bloodthirsty people.

10Evil schemes are in their hands. Their right hands are full of bribes.

11But I walk with integrity. Rescue me, and have pity on me.

12My feet stand on level ground. I will praise the LORD with the choirs in worship.
