Psalm 26 – I Love the House of the Lord

Taking them in order, the next Psalm that I haven’t posted yet is Psalm 26. It is a wonderful Psalm of the godly life. I know that on my own I have not lived up to the blameless life this Psalm portrays, but through Christ I am blameless in the sight of God. My favorite verses in this Psalm are 3 and 8. The thought that His love is ever before me is so comforting. I also love to think of the house where the Lord dwells, where His glory lives, and am thankful that I am that house where His Holy Spirit dwells. I look forward to the day that I dwell in His house.

Psalm 26

    Of David.

 1 Vindicate me, O LORD,
   for I have led a blameless life;
I have trusted in the LORD
   without wavering.
2 Test me, O LORD, and try me,
   examine my heart and my mind;
3 for your love is ever before me,
   and I walk continually in your truth.
4 I do not sit with deceitful men,
   nor do I consort with hypocrites;
5 I abhor the assembly of evildoers
   and refuse to sit with the wicked.
6 I wash my hands in innocence,
   and go about your altar, O LORD,
7 proclaiming aloud your praise
   and telling of all your wonderful deeds.
8 I love the house where you live, O LORD,
   the place where your glory dwells.

 9 Do not take away my soul along with sinners,
   my life with bloodthirsty men,
10 in whose hands are wicked schemes,
   whose right hands are full of bribes.
11 But I lead a blameless life;
   redeem me and be merciful to me.

 12 My feet stand on level ground;
   in the great assembly I will praise the LORD.
