|<< Psalm 26 >>|
English Revised Version
Vindicate Me, O Lord
1A Psalm of David. Judge me, O LORD, for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in the LORD without wavering.
2Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my reins and my heart.
3For thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes; and I have walked in thy truth.
4I have not sat with vain persons; neither will I go in with dissemblers.
5I hate the congregation of evil-doers, and will not sit with the wicked.
6I will wash mine hands in innocency; so will I compass thine altar, O LORD:
7That I may make the voice of thanksgiving to be heard, and tell of all thy wondrous works.
8LORD, 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 mischief, 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 the LORD.
