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.

詩篇 26

義人的祈求

大衛的詩。

1耶和華啊,求你為我伸冤,
因為我行為純全,
毫不動搖地信靠你。
耶和華啊,求你察驗我,
試煉我,鑒察我的心思意念。
因為我銘記你的慈愛,
我行在你的真理中。
我沒有與詭詐者為伍,
沒有跟虛偽之人同流。
我憎恨奸惡之輩,
不願與惡人交往。
耶和華啊,我洗手表明清白,
再走到你的壇前,
高唱感恩之歌,
述說你的一切奇妙作為。
耶和華啊,我愛你的殿,
你榮耀充滿的地方。
別把我的靈魂和罪人同毀,
別把我的性命與嗜血之徒同滅。
10 他們滿腹奸計,收受賄賂。
11 但我行為純全,
求你施恩拯救我。
12 我站在平安之地,
我要在眾人面前讚美耶和華。
