Psalm 26
International Standard VersionNew International Version
1Vindicate me, LORD, because I have walked in integrity; I have trusted in the LORD without wavering.1Of David. Vindicate me, LORD, for I have led a blameless life; I have trusted in the LORD and have not faltered.
2Examine me, LORD, and inspect me! Test my heart and mind. 2Test me, LORD, and try me, examine my heart and my mind;
3For your gracious love precedes me, and I continuously walk according to your truth.3for I have always been mindful of your unfailing love and have lived in reliance on your faithfulness.
4I do not sit with those committed to what is false, nor do I travel with hypocrites.4I do not sit with the deceitful, nor do I associate with hypocrites.
5I hate the company of those who practice evil, nor do I sit with the wicked.5I abhor the assembly of evildoers and refuse to sit with the wicked.
6I wash my hands innocently. I go around your altar, LORD,6I wash my hands in innocence, and go about your altar, LORD,
7so I may praise you loudly with thanksgiving and declare all your wondrous acts.7proclaiming aloud your praise and telling of all your wonderful deeds.
8LORD, I love the dwelling place that is your house, the place where your glory resides.8LORD, I love the house where you live, the place where your glory dwells.
9Do not group me with sinners, nor include me with men who shed blood.9Do not take away my soul along with sinners, my life with those who are bloodthirsty,
10Their hands are filled with wicked schemes, and their right hands with bribes.10in whose hands are wicked schemes, whose right hands are full of bribes.
11But as for me, I walk in my integrity. Redeem me and be gracious to me!11I lead a blameless life; deliver me and be merciful to me.
12My feet stand on level ground; among the worshiping congregations I will bless the LORD.12My feet stand on level ground; in the great congregation I will praise the LORD.
