Psalm 26 is interpreted by the majority of scholars as a cultic psalm. This has limited research
on Psalm 26. There are clear traces of sapiential influence in Psalm 26 concerning its intricately
well-thought concentric structure as well as various wisdom connections. This study will
however focus on the structure as well as on the core wisdom theme of walking the way of
Yahweh. This opens up interpretation possibilities for Psalm 26 and it also indicates that Psalm
26 is a literary creation belonging to the Persian Period.
