Psalm 26
International Standard VersionEnglish Standard Version
1Vindicate me, LORD, because I have walked in integrity; I have trusted in the LORD without wavering.1Vindicate me, O LORD, for I have walked in my integrity, and I have trusted in the LORD without wavering.
2Examine me, LORD, and inspect me! Test my heart and mind. 2Prove me, O LORD, and try me; test my heart and my mind.
3For your gracious love precedes me, and I continuously walk according to your truth.3For your steadfast love is before my eyes, and I walk in your faithfulness.
4I do not sit with those committed to what is false, nor do I travel with hypocrites.4I do not sit with men of falsehood, nor do I consort with hypocrites.
5I hate the company of those who practice evil, nor do I sit with the wicked.5I hate the assembly of evildoers, and I will not sit with the wicked.
6I wash my hands innocently. I go around your altar, LORD,6I wash my hands in innocence and go around your altar, O LORD,
7so I may praise you loudly with thanksgiving and declare all your wondrous acts.7proclaiming thanksgiving aloud, and telling all your wondrous deeds.
8LORD, I love the dwelling place that is your house, the place where your glory resides.8O LORD, I love the habitation of your house and the place where your glory dwells.
9Do not group me with sinners, nor include me with men who shed blood.9Do not sweep my soul away with sinners, nor my life with bloodthirsty men,
10Their hands are filled with wicked schemes, and their right hands with bribes.10in whose hands are evil devices, and whose right hands are full of bribes.
11But as for me, I walk in my integrity. Redeem me and be gracious to me!11But as for me, I shall walk in my integrity; redeem me, and be gracious to me.
12My feet stand on level ground; among the worshiping congregations I will bless the LORD.12My foot stands on level ground; in the great assembly I will bless the LORD.
