Psalm 26

1Vindicate me, O Lord,

         for I have walked in my in- | tegrity,*

         and I have trusted in the Lord without | wavering.

2Prove me, O Lord, and | try me;*

         test my heart | and my mind.

3For your steadfast love is be- | fore my eyes,*

         and I walk in your | faithfulness.

4I do not sit with men of | falsehood,*

         nor do I consort with | hypocrites.

5I hate the assembly of evil- | doers,*

         and I will not sit with the | wicked.

6I wash my hands in | innocence*

         and go around your altar, | O Lord,

7proclaiming thanksgiving | aloud,*

         and telling all your | wondrous deeds.

8O Lord, I love the habitation | of your house*

         and the place where your | glory dwells.

9Do not sweep my soul away with | sinners,*

         nor my life with blood- | thirsty men,

10in whose hands are evil de- | vices,*

         and whose right hands are | full of bribes.

11But as for me, I shall walk in my in- | tegrity;*

         redeem me, and be gra- | cious to me.

12My foot stands on | level ground;*

         in the great assembly I will | bless the Lord.
