The first book of Psalms, song 26, New English Translation

Psalm 26

   By David.
   1 Vindicate me, O LORD, for I have integrity, and I trust in the LORD without wavering.
   2 Examine me, O LORD, and test me! Evaluate my inner thoughts and motives!
   3 For I am ever aware of your faithfulness, and your loyalty continually motivates me.
   4 I do not associate with deceitful men, or consort with those who are dishonest.
   5 I hate the mob of evil men, and do not associate with the wicked.
   6 I maintain a pure lifestyle, so I can appear before your altar, O LORD,
   7 to give you thanks, and to tell about all your amazing deeds.
   8 O LORD, I love the temple where you live, the place where your splendor is revealed.
   9 Do not sweep me away with sinners, or execute me along with violent people,
   10 who are always ready to do wrong or offer a bribe.
   11 But I have integrity! Rescue me and have mercy on me!
   12 I am safe, and among the worshipers I will praise the LORD.
