Psalms 26



1 Of David.
Judge me, O Jehovah, for I have walked in my integrity;
and I have trusted in Jehovah; I shall not falter.

2 Test me, O Jehovah, and tempt me;
examine my kidneys and my heart.

3 For Thy mercy is in·​·front·​·of my eyes;
and I walk in Thy truth.

4 I have not sat with vain mortals;
and with those who hide themselves, I will not go·​·in.

5 I hate the assembly of evildoers,
and with the wicked I will not sit.

6 I will bathe my palms in innocence;
and I will surround Thine altar, O Jehovah;

7 to make the voice of confession to be heard,
and to recount all Thy wonders.

8 O Jehovah, I love the abode of Thy house
and the place of the habitation of Thy glory.

9 Gather not my soul with sinners,
nor my lives with men of bloods*;

10 in whose hands is a crime,
and their right·​·hand is·​·full of a bribe.

11 But I, in my integrity, will I walk;
ransom me, and be·​·gracious·​·to me.

12 My foot stands in uprightness;
in the assemblies will I bless Jehovah.
