Psalm 26
King James BibleNew American Standard Bible 1995
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.1A Psalm of David. Vindicate 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.2Examine me, O LORD, and try me; Test my mind and my heart.
3For thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes: and I have walked in thy truth.3For Your lovingkindness is before my eyes, And I have walked in Your truth.
4I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with dissemblers.4I do not sit with deceitful men, Nor will I go with pretenders.
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 shall wash my hands in innocence, And I will go about Your altar, O LORD,
7That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works.7That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving And declare all Your wonders.
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 take my soul away along with sinners, Nor my life with men of bloodshed,
10In whose hands is mischief, and their right hand is full of bribes.10In whose hands is a wicked scheme, And whose right hand is 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 a level place; In the congregations I shall bless the LORD.
