Psalm 26:1-Psalm 27:1 - Prayer For Vindication
1 [A Psalm of David.] Judge me, O LORD; for I have walked in my integrity: I have trusted also in the LORD; therefore I shall not slide. 2 Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my heart and my mind. 3 For your lovingkindness is before my eyes: and I have walked in your truth.
4 I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with hypocrites. 5 I have hated the congregation of evildoers; and will not sit with the wicked. 6 I will wash my hands in innocence: so will I go about your altar, O LORD: 7 That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all your wondrous works.
8 LORD, I have loved the habitation of your house, and the place where your honor dwells. 9 Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life with bloody men: 10 In whose hands is mischief, and their right hand is full of bribes.
1 [A Psalm of David.] The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
