Matthew Henry's Psalms Chapter 26 Bible commentary...
David, in this psalm, appeals to God touching his integrity.
- David here, by the Spirit of prophecy, speaks of himself as a type of Christ, of whom what he here says of his spotless innocence was fully and eminently true, and of Christ only, and to Him we may apply it. We are complete in him. The man that walks in his integrity, yet trusting wholly in the grace of God, is in a state of acceptance, according to the covenant of which Jesus was the Mediator, in virtue of his spotless obedience even unto death. This man desires to have his inmost soul searched and proved by the Lord. He is aware of the deceitfulness of his own heart; he desires to detect and mortify every sin; and he longs to be satisfied of his being a true believer, and to practise the holy commands of God. Great care to avoid bad company, is both a good evidence of our integrity, and a good means to keep us in it. Hypocrites and dissemblers may be found attending on God's ordinances; but it is a good sign of sincerity, if we attend upon them, as the psalmist here tells us he did, in the exercise of repentance and conscientious obedience. He feels his ground firm under him; and, as he delights in blessing the Lord with his congregations on earth, he trusts that shortly he shall join the great assembly in heaven, in singing praises to God and to the Lamb for evermore.

King David said I will walk in mine integrity; redeem me, and be gracious unto me. King David hated the congregation of evil doers, and did not take bribes. How we need leaders like that today. The judicial system depends on people with integrity, and only then can justice be administered. The Lord executes justice for all those who are oppressed. If you are in need of adjudication, then cry out to God, for His ears are open to the righteous. King David said this poor man cried, and the Lord saved me from all my troubles.

This is a beautiful song. In fact it has inspired me to write a song of my own.

This speaks of our separation from the world as Christians
