Salmos 26

Salmo de David.

1Hazme justicia, Señor,
    pues he llevado una vida intachable;
    ¡en el Señor confío sin titubear!
Examíname, Señor; ¡ponme a prueba!
    purifica mis entrañas y mi corazón.

Tu gran amor lo tengo presente,
    y siempre ando en tu verdad.
Yo no convivo con los mentirosos,
    ni me junto con los hipócritas;
aborrezco la compañía de los malvados;
    no cultivo la amistad de los perversos.

Con manos limpias e inocentes
    camino, Señor, en torno a tu altar,
proclamando en voz alta tu alabanza
    y contando todas tus maravillas.
Señor, yo amo la casa donde vives,
    el lugar donde reside tu gloria.

En la muerte, no me incluyas
    entre pecadores y asesinos,
10 entre gente que tiene las manos
    llenas de artimañas y sobornos.
11 Yo, en cambio, llevo una vida intachable;
    líbrame y compadécete de mí.

12 Tengo los pies en terreno firme,
    y en la gran asamblea bendeciré al Señor.

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.
