14  All day long have I been stricken 
   and chastened every morning.
15  If I had said, ‘I will speak as they do,’ 
   I should have betrayed the generation of your children.
16  Then thought I to understand this, 
   but it was too hard for me,
17  Until I entered the sanctuary of God 
   and understood the end of the wicked:
18  How you set them in slippery places; 
   you cast them down to destruction.
19  How suddenly do they come to destruction, 
   perish and come to a fearful end!
20  As with a dream when one awakes, 
   so, Lord, when you arise you will despise their image.
21  When my heart became embittered 
   and I was pierced to the quick,
22  I was but foolish and ignorant; 
   I was like a brute beast in your presence.
23  Yet I am always with you; 
   you hold me by my right hand.
24  You will guide me with your counsel 
   and afterwards receive me with glory.
25  Whom have I in heaven but you? 
   And there is nothing upon earth that I desire
      in comparison with you.
26  Though my flesh and my heart fail me, 
   God is the strength of my heart and my portion for ever.
27  Truly, those who forsake you will perish; 
   you will put to silence the faithless who betray you.
28  But it is good for me to draw near to God; 
   in the Lord God have I made my refuge,
      that I may tell of all your works.
