Psalm 26
King James BibleEnglish Standard Version
1A Psalm of David. Judge me, O LORD; for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in the LORD; therefore I shall not slide.1Vindicate me, O LORD, for I have walked in my integrity, and I have trusted in the LORD without wavering.
2Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my reins and my heart.2Prove me, O LORD, and try me; test my heart and my mind.
3For thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes: and I have walked in thy truth.3For your steadfast love is before my eyes, and I walk in your faithfulness.
4I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with dissemblers.4I do not sit with men of falsehood, nor do I consort with hypocrites.
5I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.5I hate the assembly of evildoers, and I will not sit with the wicked.
6I will wash mine hands in innocency: so will I compass thine altar, O LORD:6I wash my hands in innocence and go around your altar, O LORD,
7That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works.7proclaiming thanksgiving aloud, and telling all your wondrous deeds.
8LORD, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where thine honour dwelleth.8O LORD, I love the habitation of your house and the place where your glory dwells.
9Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life with bloody men:9Do not sweep my soul away with sinners, nor my life with bloodthirsty men,
10In whose hands is mischief, and their right hand is full of bribes.10in whose hands are evil devices, and whose right hands are full of bribes.
11But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity: redeem me, and be merciful unto me.11But as for me, I shall walk in my integrity; redeem me, and be gracious to me.
12My foot standeth in an even place: in the congregations will I bless the LORD.12My foot stands on level ground; in the great assembly I will bless the LORD.
