God, check me, prove me, try me, examine me, check me out!

Ps 26:1-12 may be viewed as a “spiritual checkup.”

Judge me, O Jehovah, for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in Jehovah without wavering.

2 Examine me, O Jehovah, and prove me; try my heart and my mind.

3 For thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes; and I have walked in thy truth.

4 I have not sat with men of falsehood; neither will I go in with dissemblers.

5 I hate the assembly of evil-doers, and will not sit with the wicked.

6 I will wash my hands in innocency: so will I compass thine altar, O Jehovah;

7 That I may make the voice of thanksgiving to be heard, and tell of all thy wondrous works.

8 Jehovah, I love the habitation of thy house, and the place where thy glory dwelleth.

9 Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life with men of blood;

10 In whose hands is wickedness, and their right hand is full of bribes.

11 But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity: redeem me, and be merciful unto me.

12 My foot standeth in an even place: in the congregations will I bless Jehovah.
