4I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with dissemblers.
5I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.
6I will wash mine hands in innocency: so will I compass thine altar, O LORD:

9Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life with bloody men:26.9 Gather…: or, Take not away26.9 bloody…: Heb. men of blood
10In whose hands is mischief, and their right hand is full of bribes.26.10 full…: Heb. filled with
11But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity: redeem me, and be merciful unto me.
12My foot standeth in an even place: in the congregations will I bless the LORD.
