PS 73:1 <> Surely God is good to Israel, To those who are pure in heart.

PS 73:2 But as for me, my feet were almost gone. My steps had nearly slipped.

PS 73:3 For I was envious of the arrogant, When I saw the prosperity of the wicked.

PS 73:4 For there are no struggles in their death, But their strength is firm.

PS 73:5 They are free from burdens of men, Neither are they plagued like other men.

PS 73:6 Therefore pride is like a chain around their neck. Violence covers them like a garment.

PS 73:7 Their eyes bulge with fat. Their minds pass the limits of conceit.

PS 73:8 They scoff and speak with malice. In arrogance, they threaten oppression.

PS 73:9 They have set their mouth in the heavens. Their tongue walks through the earth.

PS 73:10 Therefore their people return to them, And they drink up waters of abundance.

PS 73:11 They say, "How does God know? Is there knowledge in the Most High?"

PS 73:12 Behold, these are the wicked. Being always at ease, they increase in riches.

PS 73:13 Surely in vain I have cleansed my heart, And washed my hands in innocence,

PS 73:14 For all day long have I been plagued, And punished every morning.

PS 73:15 If I had said, "I will speak thus;" Behold, I would have betrayed the generation of your children.

PS 73:16 When I tried to understand this, It was too painful for me;

PS 73:17 Until I entered God's sanctuary, And considered their latter end.

PS 73:18 Surely you set them in slippery places. You throw them down to destruction.

PS 73:19 How they are suddenly destroyed! They are completely swept away with terrors.

PS 73:20 As a dream when one wakes up, So, Lord, when you awake, you will despise their fantasies.

PS 73:21 For my soul was grieved. I was embittered in my heart.

PS 73:22 I was so senseless and ignorant. I was a brute beast before you.

PS 73:23 Nevertheless, I am continually with you. You have held my right hand.

PS 73:24 You will guide me with your counsel, And afterward receive me to glory.

PS 73:25 Who do I have in heaven? There is no one on earth who I desire besides you.

PS 73:26 My flesh and my heart fails, But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

PS 73:27 For, behold, those who are far from you shall perish. You have destroyed all those who are unfaithful to you.

PS 73:28 But it is good for me to come close to God. I have made the Lord Yahweh my refuge, That I may tell of all your works.
