Psalm 26

David says that he has walked in integrity and obedience—He loves the Lord’s house.

A Psalm of David.

 Judge me, O Lord; for I have walked in mine integrity: I have atrusted also in the Lord; therefore I shall not slide.

 Examine me, O Lord, and aprove me; try my reins and my heart.

 For thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes: and I have walked in thy truth.

 I have not sat with avain persons, neither will I go in with dissemblers.

 I have ahated the congregation of bevil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.

 I will awash mine hands in innocency: so will I compass thine altar, O Lord:

 That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy awondrous works.

 Lord, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where thine ahonour dwelleth.

 Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life with abloody men:

 10 In whose hands is mischief, and their right hand is full of abribes.

 11 But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity: redeem me, and be merciful unto me.

 12 My foot standeth in an even place: in the acongregations will I bless the Lord.
