Psalm Twenty Six

1: Judge me, O LORD; for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in the LORD; therefore I shall not slide.

2: Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my reins and my heart.

3: For thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes: and I have walked in thy truth.

4: I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with dissemblers.

5: I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.

6: I will wash mine hands in innocency: so will I compass thine altar, O LORD:

7: :That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works.

8: LORD, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where thine honour dwelleth.

9: Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life with bloody men:

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

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

12: My foot standeth in an even place: in the congregations will I bless the LORD.
