Amplified Bible

Psalm 26

Protestation of Integrity and Prayer for Protection.

A Psalm of David.

1Vindicate me, O Lord, for I have walked in my integrity;
I have [relied on and] trusted [confidently] in the Lord without wavering and I shall not slip.

Examine me, O Lord, and try me;
Test my heart and my mind.

For Your lovingkindness is before my eyes,
And I have walked [faithfully] in Your truth.

I do not sit with deceitful or unethical or worthless men,
Nor seek companionship with pretenders (self-righteous hypocrites).

I hate the company of evildoers,
And will not sit with the wicked.

I will wash my hands in innocence,
And I will go about Your altar, O Lord,

That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving
And declare all Your wonders.


O Lord, I love the habitation of Your house
And the place where Your glory dwells.

Do not sweep my soul away with sinners,
Nor [sweep away] my life with men of bloodshed,
10 
In whose hands is a wicked scheme,
And whose right hand is full of bribes.
11 
But as for me, I shall walk in my integrity;
Redeem me and be merciful and gracious to me.
12 
My foot stands on a level place;
In the congregations I will bless the Lord.

诗篇 26

义人的祈求

大卫的诗。

1耶和华啊,求你为我申冤,
因为我行为纯全,
毫不动摇地信靠你。
耶和华啊,求你察验我,
试炼我,鉴察我的心思意念。
因为我铭记你的慈爱,
我行在你的真理中。
我没有与诡诈者为伍,
没有跟虚伪之人同流。
我憎恨奸恶之辈,
不愿与恶人交往。
耶和华啊,我洗手表明清白,
再走到你的坛前,
高唱感恩之歌,
述说你的一切奇妙作为。
耶和华啊,我爱你的殿,
你荣耀充满的地方。
别把我的灵魂和罪人同毁,
别把我的性命与嗜血之徒同灭。
10 他们满腹奸计,收受贿赂。
11 但我行为纯全,
求你施恩拯救我。
12 我站在平安之地,
我要在众人面前赞美耶和华。
