Chapter 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. 

 


2

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

 


3

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

 


4

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

 


5

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

 


6

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

 


7

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

 


8

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

 


9

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

 


10

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

 


11

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

 


12

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