26:1 <Of David.> O Lord, be my judge, for my behaviour has been upright: I have put my faith in the Lord, I am not in danger of slipping.

26:2 Put me in the scales, O Lord, so that I may be tested; let the fire make clean my thoughts and my heart.

26:3 For your mercy is before my eyes; and I have gone in the way of your good faith.

26:4 I have not taken my seat with foolish persons, and I do not go with false men.

26:5 I have been a hater of the band of wrongdoers, and I will not be seated among sinners.

26:6 I will make my hands clean from sin; so will I go round your altar, O Lord;

26:7 That I may give out the voice of praise, and make public all the wonders which you have done.

26:8 Lord, your house has been dear to me, and the resting-place of your glory.

26:9 Let not my soul be numbered among sinners, or my life among men of blood;

26:10 In whose hands are evil designs, and whose right hands take money for judging falsely.

26:11 But as for me, I will go on in my upright ways: be my saviour, and have mercy on me.

26:12 I have a safe resting-place for my feet; I will give praise to the Lord in the meetings of the people.
