Psalms , CHAPTER 26
Of David. Grant me justice, LORD! I have walked without blame. In the LORD I have trusted; I have not faltered.
Test me, LORD, and try me; search my heart and mind.
Your love is before my eyes; I walk guided by your faithfulness.
I do not sit with deceivers, nor with hypocrites do I mingle.
I hate the company of evildoers; with the wicked I do not sit.
I will wash my hands in innocence and walk round your altar, LORD,
Lifting my voice in thanks, recounting all your wondrous deeds.
LORD, I love the house where you dwell, the tenting-place of your glory.
Do not take me away with sinners, nor my life with the violent.
Their hands carry out their schemes; their right hands are full of bribes.
But I walk without blame; redeem me, be gracious to me!
