David resorteth unto God in confidence of his integrity.
Psalms 26:1 Unto the end, a psalm for David. Judge me, O Lord, for I have walked in my innocence: and I have put my trust in the Lord, and shall not be weakened. Psalms 26:2 Prove me, O Lord, and try me; burn my reins and my heart. Psalms 26:3 For thy mercy is before my eyes; and I am well pleased with thy truth. Psalms 26:4 I have not sat with the council of vanity: neither will I go in with the doers of unjust things. Psalms 26:5 I have hated the assembly of the malignant; and with the wicked I will not sit. Psalms 26:6 I will wash my hands among the innocent; and will compass thy altar, O Lord: Psalms 26:7 That I may hear the voice of thy praise: and tell of all thy wondrous works. Psalms 26:8 I have loved, O Lord, the beauty of thy house; and the place where thy glory dwelleth. Psalms 26:9 Take not away my soul, O God, with the wicked: nor my life with bloody men: Psalms 26:10 In whose hands are iniquities: their right hand is filled with gifts. Psalms 26:11 But as for me, I have walked in my innocence: redeem me, and have mercy on me. Psalms 26:12 My foot hath stood in the direct way: in the churches I will bless thee, O Lord.
