Psalms 26:1-12

(Of David’s.) 26  Do justice for me, Jehovah, because I go sincerely and put an unfaltering trust in Jehovah. 2*  Test me, Jehovah, and try me, probe my heart and brain, 3  Because I have your friendship before my eyes and walk by your good faith, 4*  I have not taken my seat with disorderly men and do not go in with underhanded men, 5*  I hate a coterie of evil-doers and will not live with knaves. 6  I will wash my hands in innocence and go round your altar, Jehovah, 7  To sound the voice of thanksgiving and tell the story of all your wonders. 8  Jehovah, I love the site of your house, the place where your glory is tabernacled. 9*  Do not sweep away my life with sinners, with murderers my being, 10*  Who have misdeeds in hand and their fists full of bribes. 11*  But I go sincerely; redeem me, Jehovah, and be gracious to me. 12  My foot is standing on level ground; in assembled throngs I will bless Jehovah.
