Psalm 73

1Truly God is good to the upright, to those who are pure in heart.

2But as for me, my feet had almost stumbled; my steps had nearly slipped.

3For I was envious of the arrogant; I saw the prosperity of the wicked.

4For they have no pain; their bodies are sound and sleek.

5They are not in trouble as others are; they are not plagued like other people.

15If I had said, “I will talk on in this way,” I would have been untrue to the circle of your children.

16But when I thought how to understand this, it seemed to me a wearisome task,

17until I went into the sanctuary of God; then I perceived their end.

18Truly you set them in slippery places; you make them fall to ruin.

19How they are destroyed in a moment, swept away utterly by terrors!

20They are like a dream when one awakes; on awaking you despise their phantoms.

21When my soul was embittered, when I was pricked in heart,

22I was stupid and ignorant; I was like a brute beast toward you.

23Nevertheless I am continually with you; you hold my right hand.

24You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will receive me with honor.

25Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire other than you.

26My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
