26 Judge me, O Jehovah, for I have walked in my integrity;+
In Jehovah I have trusted without wavering.+
2 Examine me, O Jehovah, and put me to the test;
Refine my innermost thoughts* and my heart.+
3 For your loyal love is always in front of me,
And I walk in your truth.+
4 I do not associate* with deceitful men,+
And I avoid those who hide what they are.*
5 I hate the company of evil men,+
And I refuse to associate* with the wicked.+
6 I will wash my hands in innocence,
And I will march around your altar, O Jehovah,
7 To cause the sound of thanksgiving to be heard+
And to declare all your wonderful works.
8 Jehovah, I love the house where you dwell,+
The place where your glory resides.+
9 Do not sweep me* away with sinners+
Nor take my life away with violent men,*
10 Whose hands engage in shameful conduct,
And whose right hand is full of bribes.
11 But as for me, I will walk in my integrity.
Rescue* me and show me favor.
12 My foot is standing on level ground;+
In the great congregation,* I will praise Jehovah.+
