Psalms Chapter 26 – David professeth unto God his integrity. (A Psalm of David.)

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 loving-kindness 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 evildoers; 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 honor 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.
