Book of Psalms
Truly God is good to Israel, even to such as are of
a clean heart.
73:2 But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my
steps had well nigh slipped.
73:3 For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw
the prosperity of the wicked.
73:4 For there are no bands in their death: but
their strength is firm.
73:5 They are not in trouble as other men; neither
are they plagued like other men.
73:6 Therefore pride compasseth them about as a
chain; violence covereth them as a garment.
73:7 Their eyes stand out with fatness: they have
more than heart could wish.
73:8 They are corrupt, and speak wickedly concerning
oppression: they speak loftily.
73:9 They set their mouth against the heavens, and
their tongue walketh through the earth.
73:10 Therefore his people return hither: and waters
of a full cup are wrung out to them.
73:11 And they say, How doth God know? and is there
knowledge in the most High?
73:12 Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in
the world; they increase in riches.
73:13 Verily I have cleansed my heart in vain, and
washed my hands in innocency.
73:14 For all the day long have I been plagued, and
chastened every morning.
73:15 If I say, I will speak thus; behold, I should
offend against the generation of thy children.
73:16 When I thought to know this, it was too
painful for me;
73:17 Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then
understood I their end.
73:18 Surely thou didst set them in slippery places:
thou castedst them down into destruction.
73:19 How are they brought into desolation, as in a
moment! they are utterly consumed with terrors.
73:20 As a dream when one awaketh; so, O Lord, when
thou awakest, thou shalt despise their image.
73:21 Thus my heart was grieved, and I was pricked
in my reins.
73:22 So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a
beast before thee.
73:23 Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou
hast holden me by my right hand.
73:24 Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and
afterward receive me to glory.
73:25 Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is
none upon earth that I desire beside thee.
73:26 My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the
strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.
73:27 For, lo, they that are far from thee shall
perish: thou hast destroyed all them that go a
whoring from thee.
73:28 But it is good for me to draw near to God: I
have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may
declare all thy works.
