Psalm 26

By David. 1Judge me, TheIAM, for I have walked in my integrity. I have trusted also in TheIAM without wavering. 2Examine me, TheIAM, and prove me. Try my heart and my mind. 3For your loving kindness is before my eyes. I have walked in your truth. 4I have not sat with deceitful men, neither will I go in with hypocrites. 5I hate 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, TheIAM; 7that I may make the voice of thanksgiving to be heard, and tell of all your wondrous works. 8TheIAM, I love the habitation of your house, the place where your glory dwells. 9Don't gather my soul with sinners, nor my life with bloodthirsty men; 10in whose hands is wickedness, their 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 TheIAM.
