Psalm 26 King James Version

A Protestation of Integrity

26 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 [1] not my soul with sinners, nor my life with bloody men: 10  In whose hands is mischief, and their right hand is full [2] 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.
