Psalm 26

[1] Vindicate me, O LORD,

                                for I have walked in my integrity,

                                and I have trusted in the LORD without wavering.

                [2] Prove me, O LORD, and try me;

                                test my heart and my mind.

                [3] For your steadfast love is before my eyes,

                                and I walk in your faithfulness.

                [4] I do not sit with men of falsehood,

                                nor do I consort with hypocrites.

                [5] I hate the assembly of evildoers,

                                and I will not sit with the wicked.

                [6] I wash my hands in innocence

                                and go around your altar, O LORD,

                [7] proclaiming thanksgiving aloud,

                                and telling all your wondrous deeds.

                [8] O LORD, I love the habitation of your house

                                and the place where your glory dwells.

                [9] Do not sweep my soul away with sinners,

                                nor my life with bloodthirsty men,

                [10] in whose hands are evil devices,

                                and whose right hands are full of bribes.

                [11] But as for me, I shall walk in my integrity;

                                redeem me, and be gracious to me.

                [12] My foot stands on level ground;

                                in the great assembly I will bless the LORD.

  • I can’t say this.
  •  There was One who could say this.
  •  The One who could say this did so for me.
  •  In Christ I can now actually say this
