Psalms Chapter 26 |
Vindicate me, O Lord,
for I have walked without blame;
I have trusted in the Lord;
I have not faltered.
2Probe me, O Lord, and try me,
test my heart and mind;
3 for my eyes are on Your steadfast love;
I have set my course by it.
4I do not consort with scoundrels,
or mix with hypocrites;
5I detest the company of evil men,
and do not consort with the wicked;
6I wash my hands in innocence,
and walk around Your altar, O Lord,
7raising my voice in thanksgiving,
and telling all Your wonders.
8O Lord, I love Your temple abode,
the dwelling-place of Your glory.
9Do not sweep me away with sinners,
or [snuff out] my life with murderers,
10who have schemes at their fingertips,
and hands full of bribes.
11But I walk without blame;
redeem me, have mercy on me!
12My feet are on level ground.
In assemblies I will bless the Lord.
