Psalm 26 A Prayer for Divine Scrutiny and Redemption A Psalm of David. 26 1Vindicate me, O Lord, For I have walked in my integrity. I have also trusted in the Lord; I shall not slip. 2Examine me, O Lord, and [X]prove me; Try my mind and my heart. 3For Your lovingkindness is before my eyes, And I have walked in Your truth. 4I have not sat with idolatrous mortals, Nor will I go in with hypocrites. 5I have hated the assembly of evildoers, And will not sit with the wicked. 6I will wash my hands in innocence; So I will go about Your altar, O Lord, 7That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving, And tell of all Your wondrous works. 8Lord, I have loved the habitation of Your house, And the place [Y]where Your glory dwells. 9Do [Z]not gather my soul with sinners, Nor my life with bloodthirsty men, 10In whose hands is a sinister scheme, And whose right hand is full of bribes. 11But as for me, I will walk in my integrity; Redeem me and be merciful to me. 12My foot stands in an even place; In the congregations I will bless the Lord.
