Integrity, Truth, Faith, Mercy, Love of the Lord — Psalm 26 #1

Psalm 26 NLT

A psalm of David.

Declare me innocent, O Lord,
    for I have acted with integrity;
    I have trusted in the Lord without wavering.
Put me on trial, Lord, and cross-examine me.
    Test my motives and my heart.
For I am always aware of your unfailing love,
    and I have lived according to your truth.
I do not spend time with liars
    or go along with hypocrites.
I hate the gatherings of those who do evil,
    and I refuse to join in with the wicked.

I wash my hands to declare my innocence.
    I come to your altar, O Lord,
singing a song of thanksgiving
    and telling of all your wonders.
I love your sanctuary, Lord,
    the place where your glorious presence dwells.

Psalm 26:6-8

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.
