Psalm 26

Plea for Justice and Declaration of Righteousness

Of David.
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 mind.
3 For your steadfast love is before my eyes,
   and I walk in faithfulness to you.*


4 I do not sit with the worthless,
   nor do I consort with hypocrites;
5 I hate the company of evildoers,
   and will not sit with the wicked.


6 I wash my hands in innocence,
   and go around your altar, O Lord,
7 singing aloud a song of thanksgiving,
   and telling all your wondrous deeds.


8Lord, I love the house in which you dwell,
   and the place where your glory abides.
9 Do not sweep me away with sinners,
   nor my life with the bloodthirsty,
10 those in whose hands are evil devices,
   and whose right hands are full of bribes.


11 But as for me, I walk in my integrity;
   redeem me, and be gracious to me.
12 My foot stands on level ground;
   in the great congregation I will bless the Lord.

Psalm 28

Prayer for Help and Thanksgiving for It

Of David.
1 To you, O Lord, I call;
   my rock, do not refuse to hear me,
for if you are silent to me,
   I shall be like those who go down to the Pit.
2 Hear the voice of my supplication,
   as I cry to you for help,
as I lift up my hands
   towards your most holy sanctuary.*


3 Do not drag me away with the wicked,
   with those who are workers of evil,
who speak peace with their neighbours,
   while mischief is in their hearts.
4 Repay them according to their work,
   and according to the evil of their deeds;
repay them according to the work of their hands;
   render them their due reward.
5 Because they do not regard the works of the Lord,
   or the work of his hands,
he will break them down and build them up no more.


6 Blessed be the Lord,
   for he has heard the sound of my pleadings.
7 The Lord is my strength and my shield;
   in him my heart trusts;
so I am helped, and my heart exults,
   and with my song I give thanks to him.


8 The Lord is the strength of his people;
   he is the saving refuge of his anointed.
9 O save your people, and bless your heritage;
   be their shepherd, and carry them for ever.
