P28. Psalm 26: Judge me, O Lord, for I have walk'd

1 Judge me, O Lord, for I have walk’d
in mine integrity:
I trusted also in the Lord;
slide therefore shall not I.

2 Examine me, and do me prove;
try heart and reins, O God:
3 For thy love is before mine eyes,
thy truth’s paths I have trode.

4 With persons vain I have not sat,
nor with dissemblers gone:
5 Th’ assembly of ill men I hate;
to sit with such I shun.

6 Mine hands in innocence, O Lord,
I’ll wash and purify;
So to thine holy altar go,
and compass it will I:

7 That I, with voice of thanksgiving,
may publish and declare,
And tell of all thy mighty works,
that great and wondrous are.

8 The habitation of thy house,
Lord, I have loved well;
Yea, in that place I do delight
where doth thine honour dwell.

9 With sinners gather not my soul,
and such as blood would spill:
10 Whose hands mischievous plots, right hand
corrupting bribes do fill.

11 But as for me, I will walk on
in mine integrity:
Do thou redeem me, and, O Lord,
be merciful to me.

12 My foot upon an even place
doth stand with stedfastness:
Within the congregations
th’ Eternal I will bless.
