Psalms 73
New Living Translation
73[A psalm of Asaph.] Truly God is good to Israel, to those whose hearts are pure.H4210H623H430H2896H3478H1249H3824 2But as for me, I almost lost my footing. My feet were slipping, and I was almost gone.H7272H4592H5186H5186H838H369H8210 3For I envied the proud when I saw them prosper despite their wickedness.H7065H1984H7200H7965H7563 4They seem to live such painless lives; their bodies are so healthy and strong.H2784H4194H193H1277 5They don’t have troubles like other people; they’re not plagued with problems like everyone else.H5999H582H5060H5973H120 6They wear pride like a jeweled necklace and clothe themselves with cruelty.H1346H6059H2555H5848H7897 7These fat cats have everything their hearts could ever wish for!H5869H3318H2459H5674H3824H4906 8They scoff and speak only evil; in their pride they seek to crush others.H4167H1696H7451H6233H1696H4791 9They boast against the very heavens, and their words strut throughout the earth.H8371H6310H8064H3956H1980H776 10And so the people are dismayed and confused, drinking in all their words.H5971H7725H7725H1988H4325H4392H4680 11“What does God know?” they ask. “Does the Most High even know what’s happening?”H559H410H3045H3426H1844H5945 12Look at these wicked people—enjoying a life of ease while their riches multiply.H7563H7961H5769H7685H2428 13Did I keep my heart pure for nothing? Did I keep myself innocent for no reason?H2135H3824H7385H7364H3709H5356 14I get nothing but trouble all day long; every morning brings me pain.H3117H5060H8433H1242 15If I had really spoken this way to others, I would have been a traitor to your people.H559H5608H3644H898H1755H1121 16So I tried to understand why the wicked prosper. But what a difficult task it is!H2803H3045H5999H5869 17Then I went into your sanctuary, O God, and I finally understood the destiny of the wicked.H935H4720H410H995H319 18Truly, you put them on a slippery path and send them sliding over the cliff to destruction.H7896H2513H5307H4876 19In an instant they are destroyed, completely swept away by terrors.H8047H7281H5486H8552H1091 20When you arise, O Lord, you will laugh at their silly ideas as a person laughs at dreams in the morning.H2472H6974H136H5782H959H6754 21Then I realized that my heart was bitter, and I was all torn up inside.H3824H2556H8150H3629 22I was so foolish and ignorant—I must have seemed like a senseless animal to you.H1198H3045H929 23Yet I still belong to you; you hold my right hand.H8548H270H3225H3027 24You guide me with your counsel, leading me to a glorious destiny.H5148H6098H310H3947H3519 25Whom have I in heaven but you? I desire you more than anything on earth.H8064H776H2654 26My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; he is mine forever.H7607H3824H3615H430H6697H3824H2506H5769 27Those who desert him will perish, for you destroy those who abandon you.H7369H6H6789H2181 28But as for me, how good it is to be near God! I have made the Sovereign Lord my shelter, and I will tell everyone about the wonderful things you do.H589H2896H7132H430H7896H4268H136H3069H5608H4399
