019:073:001
Truly God is good to Israel,
even to such as are of a clean heart.


019:073:002
But as for me,
my feet were almost gone;
my steps had well nigh slipped.


019:073:003
For I was envious at the foolish,
when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.


019:073:004
For there are no bands in their death:
but their strength is firm.


019:073:005
They are not in trouble as other men;
neither are they plagued like other men.


019:073:006
Therefore pride compasseth them about as a chain;
violence covereth them as a garment.


019:073:007
Their eyes stand out with fatness:
they have more than heart could wish.


019:073:008
They are corrupt,
and speak wickedly concerning oppression:
they speak loftily.


019:073:009
They set their mouth against the heavens,
and their tongue walketh through the earth.


019:073:010
Therefore his people return hither:
and waters of a full cup are wrung out to them.


019:073:011
And they say,
How doth God know?
and is there knowledge in the most High?


019:073:012
Behold,
these are the ungodly,
who prosper in the world;
they increase in riches.


019:073:013
Verily I have cleansed my heart in vain,
and washed my hands in innocency.


019:073:014
For all the day long have I been plagued,
and chastened every morning.


019:073:015
If I say,
I will speak thus;
behold,
I should offend against the generation of thy children.


019:073:016
When I thought to know this,
it was too painful for me;


019:073:017
Until I went into the sanctuary of God;
then understood I their end.


019:073:018
Surely thou didst set them in slippery places:
thou castedst them down into destruction.


019:073:019
How are they brought into desolation,
as in a moment!
they are utterly consumed with terrors.


019:073:020
As a dream when one awaketh;
so,
O Lord,
when thou awakest,
thou shalt despise their image.


019:073:021
Thus my heart was grieved,
and I was pricked in my reins.


019:073:022
So foolish was I,
and ignorant:
I was as a beast before thee.


019:073:023
Nevertheless I am continually with thee:
thou hast holden me by my right hand.


019:073:024
Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel,
and afterward receive me to glory.


019:073:025
Whom have I in heaven but thee?
and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee.


019:073:026
My flesh and my heart faileth:
but God is the strength of my heart,
and my portion for ever.


019:073:027
For,
lo,
they that are far from thee shall perish:
thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee.


019:073:028
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.
