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.

Zabbuli 26

Zabbuli ya Dawudi.

1Onnejjeereze, Ayi Mukama,
    kubanga obulamu bwange tebuliiko kya kunenyezebwa;
nneesiga ggwe, Ayi Mukama,
    nga sibuusabuusa.
Neetegereza, Ayi Mukama, ongezese;
    weekalirize ebiri mu mutima gwange ne mu mmeeme yange.
Kubanga okwagala kwo kwe kunkulembera,
    era mu mazima go mwe ntambulira.

Situula na bantu balimba,
    so siteesaganya na bakuusa.
Nkyawa ekibiina ky’aboonoonyi;
    so situula na bakozi ba bibi.
Naaba mu ngalo zange okulaga nga bwe sirina misango;[a]
    ne ndyoka nzija ku Kyoto kyo, Ayi Mukama;
ne nnyimba oluyimba olw’okwebaza,
    olwogera ku bikolwa byo ebyewuunyisa.

Ennyumba yo mw’obeera njagala, Ayi Mukama,
    kye kifo ekijjudde ekitiibwa kyo.
Tombalira mu boonoonyi,
    wadde mu batemu,
10 abakozesa emikono gyabwe okutegeka ebikolwa ebibi,
    era abali b’enguzi.
11 Naye nze ntambula nga siriiko kye nnenyezebwa;
    nkwatirwa ekisa, Ayi Mukama, ondokole.

12 Nnyimiridde watereevu.
    Nnaatenderezanga Mukama mu kibiina ky’abantu ekinene.
