Psalms - Chapter 26 | New King James Version

  • 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.
