Psalm 26New American Standard Bible (NASB)

A Psalm of David.

26 Vindicate me, O Lord, for I have walked in my integrity,
And I have trusted in the Lord without wavering.
2 Examine me, O Lord, and try me;
Test my mind and my heart.
3 For Your lovingkindness is before my eyes,
And I have walked in Your truth.
4 I do not sit with deceitful men,
Nor will I go with pretenders.
5 I hate the assembly of evildoers,
And I will not sit with the wicked.
6 I shall wash my hands in innocence,
And I will go about Your altar, O Lord,
7 That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving
And declare all Your wonders.

8 O Lord, I love the habitation of Your house
And the place where Your glory dwells.
9 Do not take my soul away along with sinners,
Nor my life with men of bloodshed,
10 In whose hands is a wicked scheme,
And whose right hand is full of bribes.
11 But as for me, I shall walk in my integrity;
Redeem me, and be gracious to me.
12 My foot stands on a level place;
In the congregations I shall bless the Lord.

  1. This Psalm really spoke to me this morning. But 25 felt like it was written just for me.

  2. ‘Redeem me, and be gracious to me.’
    My thoughts, too, Vicki.

    Safe travels today to you and Phillip!

  4. 11. "...Redeem me, and be gracious to me."

    This chapter makes you think about being judged.

  5. This sounds so much like Psalm 1 to me. What does it mean to dwell in the habitation of God?

  8. Wouldn't it be great to be able to say each statement just as David did.... With confidence. ❤️

  9. David's heart is so evident. I have to ask myself, "Am I justified? On level ground when examined?" It's a sobering question.
