|<< Psalm 26 >>|
American Standard Version
Vindicate Me, O Lord
1Judge me, O Jehovah, for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in Jehovah without wavering.
2Examine me, O Jehovah, and prove me; Try my heart and my mind.
3For thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes; And I have walked in thy truth.
4I have not sat with men of falsehood; Neither will I go in with dissemblers.
5I hate the assembly of evil-doers, And will not sit with the wicked.
6I will wash my hands in innocency: So will I compass thine altar, O Jehovah;
7That I may make the voice of thanksgiving to be heard, And tell of all thy wondrous works.
8Jehovah, I love the habitation of thy house, And the place where thy glory dwelleth.
9Gather not my soul with sinners, Nor my life with men of blood;
10In whose hands is wickedness, And their right hand is full of bribes.
11But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity: Redeem me, and be merciful unto me.
12My foot standeth in an even place: In the congregations will I bless Jehovah.
