Psalms 26

A psalm of David.
 1  Declare me innocent, O LORD,
  for I have acted with integrity;
  I have trusted in the LORD without wavering.
 2  Put me on trial, LORD, and cross-examine me.
  Test my motives and my heart.
 3  For I am always aware of your unfailing love,
  and I have lived according to your truth.
 4  I do not spend time with liars
  or go along with hypocrites.
 5  I hate the gatherings of those who do evil,
  and I refuse to join in with the wicked.
 6  I wash my hands to declare my innocence.
  I come to your altar, O LORD,
 7  singing a song of thanksgiving
  and telling of all your wonders.
 8  I love your sanctuary, LORD,
  the place where your glorious presence dwells.

 9  Don't let me suffer the fate of sinners.
  Don't condemn me along with murderers.
 10  Their hands are dirty with evil schemes,
  and they constantly take bribes.
 11  But I am not like that; I live with integrity.
  So redeem me and show me mercy.
 12  Now I stand on solid ground,
  and I will publicly praise the LORD.
