Psalm 73

1  Truly, God is loving to Israel, 
   to those who are pure in heart.
2  Nevertheless, my feet were almost gone; 
   my steps had well-nigh slipped.
3  For I was envious of the proud; 
   I saw the wicked in such prosperity;
4  For they suffer no pains 
   and their bodies are sleek and sound;
5  They come to no misfortune like other folk; 
   nor are they plagued as others are;
6  Therefore pride is their necklace 
   and violence wraps them like a cloak.
7  Their iniquity comes from within; 
   the conceits of their hearts overflow.
8  They scoff, and speak only of evil; 
   they talk of oppression from on high.
9  They set their mouth against the heavens, 
   and their tongue ranges round the earth;
10  And so the people turn to them 
   and find in them no fault.
11  They say, ‘How should God know? 
   Is there knowledge in the Most High?’
12  Behold, these are the wicked; 
   ever at ease, they increase their wealth.
13  Is it in vain that I cleansed my heart 
   and washed my hands in innocence?
