Psalm 26                                                                                                    Friday Midday 1

Judge me, Yahweh! * I have conducted myself with integrity.

I have trusted in Yahweh; * I have not wavered.

    Examine me, Yahweh, and try me, * testing my heart and my mind.

        Your love is always in my sight; * I have been faithful to you.

           I have not sat with idol-worshipers, * nor entered the home of the ignorant.

               I have hated the company of evildoers, * and never sat down with the wicked.

                   I have washed my hands in innocence, * to march around your altar, Yahweh,

                   to proclaim aloud your praise * and tell all your wonderful deeds.

               Yahweh, I love to live in your house, * the home where your glory dwells.

           Don't sweep me away with sinners, * my life with men of idols:

        In their left hand are idols; * their right hand is full of bribes.

    As for me, I move with integrity; * redeem me and show me your mercy.

My foot has stood firm with the upright; * in the assemblies I have knelt down to Yahweh.
