Psalms 26

Peake's Commentary on the BiblePeake's Commentary

Verses 1-12

XXVI. A persecuted man protests his absolute innocence, his avoidance of unfaithful Jews, his joy in the Temple service. The claim to innocence is repugnant to Christian feeling, scarcely less so than the imprecations upon enemies which occur frequently in other Pss. Men become humble in the Christian sense through the vision of Him in whom there was no sin.

Psalms 26:3 . in thy truth: i.e. in the confidence that Thou art faithful.

Psalms 26:6 . This is the only direct evidence in the Bible for the festal procession round Yahweh’ s altar.

Psalms 26:12 . congregations: probably guilds of singers, etc.
