Psalm 26

1  A 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.

2  Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my reins and my heart.

3  For thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes: and I have walked in thy truth.

4  I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with dissemblers.

5  I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.

6  I will wash mine hands in innocency: so will I compass thine altar, O LORD:

7  That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works.

8  LORD, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where thine honour dwelleth.

9  Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life with bloody men:

10  In whose hands is mischief, and their right hand is full of bribes.

11  But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity: redeem me, and be merciful unto me.

12  My foot standeth in an even place: in the congregations will I bless the LORD.
