Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC) - Psalm 26

Psalm 26

[A Psalm] of David.

1 Vindicate me, O Lord, for I have walked in my integrity; I have [expectantly] trusted in, leaned on, and relied on the Lord without wavering and I shall not slide.

2 Examine me, O Lord, and prove me; test my heart and my mind.

3 For Your loving-kindness is before my eyes, and I have walked in Your truth [faithfully].

4 I do not sit with false persons, nor fellowship with pretenders;

5 I hate the company of evildoers and will not sit with the wicked.

6 I will wash my hands in innocence, and go about Your altar, O Lord,

7 That I may make the voice of thanksgiving heard and may tell of all Your wondrous works.

8 Lord, I love the habitation of Your house, and the place where Your glory dwells.

9 Gather me not with sinners and sweep me not away [with them], nor my life with bloodthirsty men,

10 In whose hands is wickedness, and their right hands are full of bribes.

11 But as for me, I will walk in my integrity; redeem me and be merciful and gracious to me.

12 My foot stands on an even place; in the congregations will I bless the Lord.
