Psalm 26

    Psalm 26

    David says that he has walked in integrity and obedience—He loves the Lord’s house.

    A Psalm of David.

    1 Judge me, O Lord; for I have walked in mine integrity: I have atrusted also in the Lord; therefore I shall not slide.

    2 Examine me, O Lord, and aprove me; try my reins and my heart.

    3 For thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes: and I have walked in thy truth.

    4 I have not sat with avain persons, neither will I go in with dissemblers.

    5 I have ahated the congregation of bevil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.

    6 I will awash 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 awondrous works.

    8 Lord, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where thine ahonour dwelleth.

    9 Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life with abloody men:

    10 In whose hands is mischief, and their right hand is full of abribes.

    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 acongregations will I bless the Lord.
