Psalm 26 (WEBP)

[1] Judge me, Yahweh, for I have walked in my integrity. I have trusted also in Yahweh without wavering.
[2] Examine me, Yahweh, and prove me. Try my heart and my mind.
[3] For your loving kindness is before my eyes. I have walked in your truth.
[4] I have not sat with deceitful men, neither will I go in with hypocrites.
[5] I hate the assembly of evildoers, and will not sit with the wicked.
[6] I will wash my hands in innocence, so I will go about your altar, Yahweh,
[7] that I may make the voice of thanksgiving to be heard and tell of all your wondrous deeds.
[8] Yahweh, I love the habitation of your house, the place where your glory dwells.
[9] Don’t gather my soul with sinners, nor my life with bloodthirsty men
[10] in whose hands is wickedness; their right hand is full of bribes.
[11] But as for me, I will walk in my integrity. Redeem me, and be merciful to me.
[12] My foot stands in an even place. In the congregations I will bless Yahweh.

Psalm 26 (KJVS)

[1] «[A Psalm] of David H1732.» Judge H8199 (8798) me, O LORD H3068; for I have walked H1980 (8804) in mine integrity H8537: I have trusted H982 (8804) also in the LORD H3068; [therefore] I shall not slide H4571 (8799).
[2] Examine H974 (8798) me, O LORD H3068, and prove H5254 (8761) me; try H6884 (8798) my reins H3629 and my heart H3820.
[3] For thy lovingkindness H2617 [is] before mine eyes H5869: and I have walked H1980 (8694) in thy truth H571.
[4] I have not sat H3427 (8804) with vain H7723 persons H4962, neither will I go in H935 (8799) with dissemblers H5956 (8737).
[5] I have hated H8130 (8804) the congregation H6951 of evil doers H7489 (8688); and will not sit H3427 (8799) with the wicked H7563.
[6] I will wash H7364 (8799) mine hands H3709 in innocency H5356: so will I compass H5437 (8779) thine altar H4196, O LORD H3068:
[7] That I may publish H8085 (8687) with the voice H6963 of thanksgiving H8426, and tell H5608 (8763) of all thy wondrous works H6381 (8737).
[8] LORD H3068, I have loved H157 (8804) the habitation H4583 of thy house H1004, and the place H4725 where thine honour H3519 dwelleth H4908.
[9] Gather H622 (8799) not my soul H5315 with sinners H2400, nor my life H2416 with bloody H1818 men H582:
[10] In whose hands H3027 [is] mischief H2154, and their right hand H3225 is full H4390 (8804) of bribes H7810.
[11] But as for me, I will walk H3212 (8799) in mine integrity H8537: redeem H6299 (8798) me, and be merciful H2603 (8798) unto me.
[12] My foot H7272 standeth H5975 (8804) in an even place H4334: in the congregations H4721 will I bless H1288 (8762) the LORD H3068.

Young’s Literal Translation

Psalm 26 (YLT)

[1] Judge me, O Jehovah, for I in mine integrity have walked, And in Jehovah I have trusted, I slide not.
[2] Try me, O Jehovah, and prove me, Purified are my reins and my heart.
[3] For Thy kindness is before mine eyes, And I have walked habitually in Thy truth.
[4] I have not sat with vain men, And with dissemblers I enter not.
[5] I have hated the assembly of evil doers, And with the wicked I sit not.
[6] I wash in innocency my hands, And I compass Thine altar, O Jehovah.
[7] To sound with a voice of confession, And to recount all Thy wonders.
[8] Jehovah, I have loved the habitation of Thy house, And the place of the tabernacle of Thine honour.
[9] Do not gather with sinners my soul, And with men of blood my life,
[10] In whose hand is a wicked device, And their right hand is full of bribes.
[11] And I, in mine integrity I walk, Redeem me, and favour me.
[12] My foot hath stood in uprightness, In assemblies I bless Jehovah!
