Psalm 26
King James BibleInternational 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, LORD, because I have walked in integrity; I have trusted in the LORD without wavering.
2Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my reins and my heart.2Examine me, LORD, and inspect me! Test my heart and mind.
3For thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes: and I have walked in thy truth.3For your gracious love precedes me, and I continuously walk according to your truth.
4I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with dissemblers.4I do not sit with those committed to what is false, nor do I travel with hypocrites.
5I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.5I hate the company of those who practice evil, nor do I sit with the wicked.
6I will wash mine hands in innocency: so will I compass thine altar, O LORD:6I wash my hands innocently. I go around your altar, LORD,
7That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works.7so I may praise you loudly with thanksgiving and declare all your wondrous acts.
8LORD, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where thine honour dwelleth.8LORD, I love the dwelling place that is your house, the place where your glory resides.
9Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life with bloody men:9Do not group me with sinners, nor include me with men who shed blood.
10In whose hands is mischief, and their right hand is full of bribes.10Their hands are filled with wicked schemes, and their right hands with bribes.
11But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity: redeem me, and be merciful unto me.11But as for me, I 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 feet stand on level ground; among the worshiping congregations I will bless the LORD.
