23. Psalm 26- The basis of judgment

Vindicate me, O YHWH, for I have walked in my integrity and I have trusted in You Alone without wavering. Prove me, O Lord and Try me, Test my heart and my soul. For Your Steadfast Love is before my eyes and I walk in faithfulness to You. I do not sit with false men, nor do I consort with dissemblers, I hate the company of evildoers and I will not associate with the wicked. I wash my hands in innocence and go about Your Altar YHWH, my soul sings in thanksgiving for All Your Wondrous Deeds. O YHWH, I love the habitation of Your House and every place where Your Glory dwells. Sweep me not away with sinners, nor spend my life with the bloodthirsty, those in whose possession are evil devices and whose hands are full of bribes. But as for me, I walk in my integrity so Redeem me and Be Gracious To me. My foot stands on level ground and in the great congregation I will bless You YHWH.
