Psalm 26

A Prayer for Divine Scrutiny and Redemption

A Psalm of David.

1 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.
