Mission of St. Clare logo Psalm 26 Judica me, Domine

Be thou my judge, O Lord, for I have walked innocently

My trust hath been also in the Lord;
therefore shall I not fall

Examine me, O Lord, and prove me;
try out my reins and my heart

For thy loving-kindness is ever before mine eyes;
and I will walk in thy truth

I have not dwelt with vain persons;
neither will I have fellowship with the deceitful

I have hated the congregation of the wicked, and will not sit among the ungodly

I will wash my hands in innocency, O Lord;
and so will I go to thine altar, that I may show 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

O shut not up my soul with the sinners, nor my life with the bloodthirsty, in whose hands is wickedness, and their right hand is full of gifts

But as for me, I will walk innocently;
O deliver me, and be merciful unto me

My foot standeth right;
I will praise the Lord in the congregations
