Psalms 73

The prophet, prevailing in a temptation,

Psalms 73:1 {A Psalme of Asaph.} Truely God [is] good to Israel, [euen] to such as are of a cleane heart.

sheweth the occasion thereof, the prosperity of the wicked:

Psalms 73:2 But as for mee, my feete were almost gone: my steps had well-nigh slipt. Psalms 73:3 For I was enuious at the foolish, [when] I sawe the prosperity of the wicked. Psalms 73:4 For [there are] no bands in their death: but their strength is firme. Psalms 73:5 They [are] not in trouble [as other] men: neither are they plagued like [other] men. Psalms 73:6 Therefore pride compasseth them about as a chaine: violence couereth them [as] a garment. Psalms 73:7 Their eies stand out with fatnes: they haue more then heart could wish. Psalms 73:8 They are corrupt, and speake wickedly [concerning] oppression: they speake loftily. Psalms 73:9 They set their mouth against the heauens; and their tongue walketh through the earth. Psalms 73:10 Therefore his people returne hither: and waters of a full [cup] are wrung out to them. Psalms 73:11 And they say, How doth God know? and is there knowledge in the most High? Psalms 73:12 Behold, these [are] the vngodly: who prosper in the world, they increase [in] riches.

the wound given thereby, diffidence.

Psalms 73:13 Uerily I haue cleansed my heart in vaine, and washed my hands in innocencie. Psalms 73:14 For all the day long haue I bene plagued, and chastened euery morning.

The victory over it, knowledge of God's purpose, in destroying of the wicked, and sustaining the righteous.

Psalms 73:15 If I say, I will speake thus: behold, I should offend [against] the generation of thy children. Psalms 73:16 When I thought to know this, it [was] too painfull for me, Psalms 73:17 Untill I went into the Sanctuarie of God; [then] vnderstood I their end. Psalms 73:18 Surely thou didst set them in slippery places: thou castedst them downe into destruction. Psalms 73:19 How are they [brought] into desolation as in a moment? they are vtterly consumed with terrours. Psalms 73:20 As a dreame when one awaketh; [so], O Lord, when thou awakest thou shalt despise their image. Psalms 73:21 Thus my heart was greeued, and I was pricked in my reines. Psalms 73:22 So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was [as] a beast before thee. Psalms 73:23 Neuerthelesse I [am] continually with thee: thou hast holden [me] by my right hand. Psalms 73:24 Thou shalt guide me with thy counsell; and afterward receiue me [to] glory. Psalms 73:25 Whom [haue] I in heauen [but thee]? and [there is] none vpon earth that I desire besides thee. Psalms 73:26 My flesh and my heart faileth: but God [is] the strength of my heart, and my portion for euer. Psalms 73:27 For loe, they that are farre from thee, shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them that goe a whoring from thee. Psalms 73:28 But it is good for me, to drawe neere to God: I haue put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all thy workes.
