Geneva Study Bible
Psalms 26

 

 

Verse 1
"[A Psalm] of David." Judge me, a O LORD; for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in the LORD; [therefore] I shall not slide.

(a) He flees to God to be the judge of his just cause, seeing there is no equity among men.

Verse 2
Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my b reins and my heart.

(b) My very affections and inward motions of the heart.

Verse 3
For thy c lovingkindness [is] before mine eyes: and I have walked in thy truth.

(c) He shows what stayed him, that he did not recompense evil for evil.

Verse 4
I have not d sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with dissemblers.

(d) He declares that they cannot walk in simplicity before God, that delight in the company of the ungodly.

Verse 6
I will e wash mine hands in innocency: so will I compass thine altar, O LORD:

(e) I will serve you with a pure affection, and with the godly that sacrifice to you.

Verse 9
f Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life with bloody men:

(f) Destroy me not in the overthrow of the wicked.

Verse 10
In whose hands [is] g mischief, and their right hand is full of bribes.

(g) Whose cruel hands execute the malicious devises of their hearts.

Verse 12
My foot standeth in h an even place: in the congregations will I bless the LORD.

(h) I am preserved from my enemies by the power of God, and therefore will praise him openly.
