My Foot Stands On Level Ground (Psalm 26:1-12)

Phillip Stuckey, September 10, 2017
Part of the Exposition of the Psalms series, preached at a Sunday Evening service

The twenty-sixth Psalm is another psalm of David. It is a prayer to God for vindication. It has a connection to the previous psalm where David asked God to teach him His ways. In this psalm, David asks God to examine him and see that he has followed His ways and is therefore confident that in the end, his integrity will be seen by God and he will be vindicated and delivered from his enemies. Let us consider this prayer that teaches us that one who trusts in God will have a solid foundation on which to build and live his life.

Psalm 26 (Listen)

Of David.

26:1   Vindicate me, O LORD,
    for I have walked in my integrity,
    and I have trusted in the LORD without wavering.
  Prove me, O LORD, and try me;
    test my heart and my mind.
  For your steadfast love is before my eyes,
    and I walk in your faithfulness.
  I do not sit with men of falsehood,
    nor do I consort with hypocrites.
  I hate the assembly of evildoers,
    and I will not sit with the wicked.
  I wash my hands in innocence
    and go around your altar, O LORD,
  proclaiming thanksgiving aloud,
    and telling all your wondrous deeds.
  O LORD, I love the habitation of your house
    and the place where your glory dwells.
  Do not sweep my soul away with sinners,
    nor my life with bloodthirsty men,
10   in whose hands are evil devices,
    and whose right hands are full of bribes.
11   But as for me, I shall walk in my integrity;
    redeem me, and be gracious to me.
12   My foot stands on level ground;
    in the great assembly I will bless the LORD.

(ESV)
