1  Of David. Vindicate me, Hashem, for I have walked without blame; I have trusted in Hashem; I have not faltered.

26:1   Vindicate me

Rarely do we find a psalm which unabashedly calls out to Hashem for judgment. King David teaches us to always be introspective, and to find ways to improve ourselves and to remain humble before God. However, sometimes, when the circumstances are dire and the enemy is at the door, David will turn to God and ask for judgment. David states that he walked with innocence, truth, and praise of Hashem. He did not surround himself with liars, thieves or wicked men. Rather, he encircled the altar of God, speaking His praise and seeking His final home. Ultimately, in a choir of the multitudes David sings out to Hashem for vindication, and awaits His comforting response.

  • This verse and the commentary should be our prayer. I am so humbled when I read David's word. Making his words my own, I so want to follow the Lord, wait upon Him, have my life reflect His goodness and mercy. I am a long way from this but pray every day for David's heart, the heart of the Lord.

  • I have remained of God, for I have been strong in your word and have stayed in your commandments. I have remained humble before you and have followed these words you have taught me. The enemy is now at my door oh Lord of my Fathers and I call upon you for help and your guidance. I call upon you for your judgement upon me oh Lord. For I have walked in innocence in your ways and have followed your paths set before me. I have not surrounded myself with men of liars and thieves. Wicked men of evil ways of bad reputation. I have instead praised you in heart and soul. Spent much time in the Alter Room and praised you for your works and great dead's to the people and nation of Israel .Is this not my final home he cries out to God? David sings out to God and his soul cries out in such a song to God's ear. and he awaits God's response. Carl
