Introduction -

Psalm 26 KJV 1900
A Psalm of David. Judge me, O Lord; for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in the Lord; therefore I shall not slide. Examine me, O Lord, and prove me; Try my reins and my heart. For thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes: And I have walked in thy truth. I have not sat with vain persons, Neither will I go in with dissemblers. I have hated the congregation of evil doers; And will not sit with the wicked. I will wash mine hands in innocency: So will I compass thine altar, O Lord: That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, And tell of all thy wondrous works. Lord, I have loved the habitation of thy house, And the place where thine honour dwelleth. Gather not my soul with sinners, Nor my life with bloody men: In whose hands is mischief, And their right hand is full of bribes. But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity: Redeem me, and be merciful unto me. My foot standeth in an even place: In the congregations will I bless the Lord.

Integrity
Psalm 26:1–12 KJV 1900
Judge me, O Lord; for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in the Lord; therefore I shall not slide. Examine me, O Lord, and prove me; Try my reins and my heart. For thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes: And I have walked in thy truth. I have not sat with vain persons, Neither will I go in with dissemblers. I have hated the congregation of evil doers; And will not sit with the wicked. I will wash mine hands in innocency: So will I compass thine altar, O Lord: That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, And tell of all thy wondrous works. Lord, I have loved the habitation of thy house, And the place where thine honour dwelleth. Gather not my soul with sinners, Nor my life with bloody men: In whose hands is mischief, And their right hand is full of bribes. But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity: Redeem me, and be merciful unto me. My foot standeth in an even place: In the congregations will I bless the Lord.
