26:1 A Psalm of David. Judge me, O the Lord, for I have walked in mine integrity, and I have trusted in the Lord without wavering.

26:2 Examine me, O the Lord, and try me; test my reins and my heart.

26:3 For Thy mercy is before mine eyes; and I have walked in Thy truth.

26:4 I have not sat with men of falsehood; neither will I go in with dissemblers.

26:5 I hate the gathering of evil doers, and will not sit with the wicked.

26:6 I will wash my hands in innocency; so will I compass Thine altar, O the Lord,

26:7 That I may make the voice of thanksgiving to be heard, and tell of all Thy wondrous works.

26:8 the Lord, I love the habitation of Thy house, and the place where Thy glory dwelleth.

26:9 Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life with men of blood;

26:10 In whose hands is craftiness, and their right hand is full of bribes.

26:11 But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity; redeem me, and be gracious unto me.

26:12 My foot standeth in an even place; in the congregations will I bless the Lord.
