Psalm 26. Judica me, Domine.
Be thou my Judge, O LORD, for I have walked innocently: * my trust hath been also in the LORD, therefore shall I not fall.
2 Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; * try out my reins and my heart.
3 For thy loving-kindness is ever before mine eyes; * and I will walk in thy truth.
4 I have not dwelt with vain persons; * neither will I have fellowship with the deceitful.
5 I have hated the congregation of the wicked; * and will not sit among the ungodly.
6 I will wash my hands in innocency, O LORD; * and so will I go to thine altar;
7 That I may show the voice of thanksgiving, * and tell of all thy wondrous works.
8 LORD, I have loved the habitation of thy house, * and the place where thine honour dwelleth.
9 O shut not up my soul with the sinners, * nor my life with the blood-thirsty;
10 In whose hands is wickedness, * and their right hand is full of gifts.
11 But as for me, I will walk innocently: * O deliver me, and be merciful unto me.
12 My foot standeth right: * I will praise the LORD in the congregations.
