Psalm 26

Psalm 26

A psalm of David.

Lord, when you hand down your sentence, let it be in my favor.
    I have lived without blame.
I have trusted in the Lord.
    I have never doubted him.
Lord, test me. Try me out.
    Look deep down into my heart and mind.
I have always remembered your love that never fails.
    I have always depended on the fact that you are faithful.
I don’t spend time with people who tell lies.
    I don’t keep company with pretenders.
I hate to be with a group of sinful people.
    I refuse to spend time with those who are evil.
I wash my hands to show that I’m not guilty.
    Lord, I come near your altar.
I shout my praise to you.
    I tell about all the wonderful things you have done.
Lord, I love the house where you live.
    I love the place where your glory is.

Don’t destroy me together with sinners.
    Don’t take away my life along with murderers.
10 Their hands are always planning to do evil.
    Their right hands are full of money that has bought their help.
11 But I live without blame.
    Save me from harm and treat me with kindness.

12 My feet stand on level ground.
    In the whole community I will praise 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。
