Psalms 73


73:1 A Psalm of Asaph. 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
 afflicted like [other] men.
73:6 Therefore pride encompasseth them 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 innocence.
73:14 For all the day long have I been afflicted, 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] I
 understood their end.
73:18 Surely thou didst set them in slippery places: thou didst
 cast 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 wilt 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 held
 [me] by my right hand.
73:24 Thou wilt 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 besides 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 astray 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.
