Psalm 26
New Living TranslationBerean Study Bible
1Declare me innocent, O LORD, for I have acted with integrity; I have trusted in the LORD without wavering.1Of David. Vindicate me, O LORD! For I have walked with integrity; I have trusted in the LORD without wavering.
2Put me on trial, LORD, and cross-examine me. Test my motives and my heart.2Test me, O LORD, and try me; examine my heart and mind.
3For I am always aware of your unfailing love, and I have lived according to your truth.3For Your loving devotion is before my eyes, and I have walked in Your truth.
4I do not spend time with liars or go along with hypocrites.4I do not sit with deceitful men, nor keep company with hypocrites.
5I hate the gatherings of those who do evil, and I refuse to join in with the wicked.5I hate the mob of evildoers, and refuse to sit with the wicked.
6I wash my hands to declare my innocence. I come to your altar, O LORD,6I wash my hands in innocence that I may go about Your altar, O LORD,
7singing a song of thanksgiving and telling of all your wonders.7to raise my voice in thanksgiving and declare all Your wonderful works.
8I love your sanctuary, LORD, the place where your glorious presence dwells.8O LORD, I love the house where You dwell, the place where Your glory resides.
9Don’t let me suffer the fate of sinners. Don’t condemn me along with murderers.9Do not take my soul away with sinners, or my life with men of bloodshed,
10Their hands are dirty with evil schemes, and they constantly take bribes.10in whose hands are wicked schemes, whose right hands are full of bribes.
11But I am not like that; I live with integrity. So redeem me and show me mercy.11But I will walk with integrity; redeem me and be merciful to me.
12Now I stand on solid ground, and I will publicly praise the LORD.12My feet stand on level ground; in the congregations I will bless the LORD.
