Psalm 26

1 Give judgement for me, O Lord, for I have walked in my integrity:
    I have trusted in the Lord and not wavered.
2 Put me to the test, O Lord, and prove me:
    try my mind and my heart.
3 For your steadfast love has been ever before my eyes:
    and I have walked in your truth.
4 I have not sat with deceivers:
    nor consorted with the hypocrites;
5 I hate the assembly of the wicked:
    I will not sit with the ungodly.
6 I wash my hands in innocence, O Lord:
    that I may go about your altar,
7 And lift up the voice of thanksgiving:
    to tell of all your marvellous works.
8 Lord, I love the house of your habitation:
    and the place where your glory dwells.
9 Do not sweep me away with sinners:
    nor my life with those that thirst for blood,
10 In whose hand is abomination:
    and their right hand is full of bribes.
11 As for me, I walk in my integrity:
    O ransom me and be favourable toward me.
12 My foot stands on an even path:
    I will bless the Lord in the great congregation.
