Psalm 26 New King James Version

A Protestation of Integrity

26 1  A Psalm of David. Vindicate me, O Lord, For I have walked in my integrity. I have also trusted in the Lord; I shall not slip. 2  Examine me, O Lord, and prove me; Try my mind and my heart. 3  For Your lovingkindness is before my eyes, And I have walked in Your truth. 4  I have not sat with idolatrous mortals, Nor will I go in with hypocrites. 5  I have hated the assembly of evildoers, And will not sit with the wicked.

6  I will wash my hands in innocence; So I will go about Your altar, O Lord, 7  That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving, And tell of all Your wondrous works. 8  Lord, I have loved the habitation of Your house, And the place where Your glory dwells. 9  Do not gather my soul with sinners, Nor my life with bloodthirsty men, 10  In whose hands is a sinister scheme, And whose right hand is full of bribes. 11  But as for me, I will walk in my integrity; Redeem me and be merciful to me. 12  My foot stands in an even place; In the congregations I will bless the Lord.
