Psalm 26 World English Bible

A Protestation of Integrity

26 1  Judge me, Yahweh, for I have walked in my integrity.
I have trusted also in Yahweh without wavering. 2  Examine me, Yahweh, and prove me.
Try my heart and my mind. 3  For your loving kindness is before my eyes.
I have walked in your truth. 4  I have not sat with deceitful men,
neither will I go in with hypocrites. 5  I hate 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, Yahweh; 7  that I may make the voice of thanksgiving to be heard,
and tell of all your wondrous works. 8  Yahweh, I love the habitation of your house,
the place where your glory dwells. 9  Don’t gather my soul with sinners,
nor my life with bloodthirsty men; 10  in whose hands is wickedness,
their 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 Yahweh.
