Psalm 26

1 Give judgment for me, O LORD,

 for I have walked in my integrity.

 I have trusted in the LORD; I have not wavered.

2 Examine me, LORD, and try me.

 O test my heart and my mind.

 3 Your mercy is before my eyes,

 and I walk according to your truth.

4 I never take my seat with liars,

 and with hypocrites I shall not go.

 5 I hate the evildoer’s company;

 I will not take my seat with the wicked.

6 I wash my hands in innocence

 and take my place around your altar,

 7 singing a song of thanksgiving,

 recounting all your wonders.

 8 O LORD, I love the house where you dwell,

 the place where your glory abides.

9 Do not sweep away my soul with sinners,

 nor my life with those who shed blood,

 10 in whose hands are evil plots,

 whose right hands are filled with a bribe.

11 As for me, I have walked in my integrity.

 Redeem me and have mercy on me.

 12 My foot stands on level ground:

 I will bless the LORD in the assembly.
