Psalms 73

The prophet, prevailing in a temptation,

Psalms 73:1 O how louynge is God vnto Israel, to soch as are of a clene hert?

sheweth the occasion thereof, the prosperity of the wicked:

Psalms 73:2 Neuerthelesse my fete were allmost gone, my treadinges had wel nye slipte. Psalms 73:3 And why. I was greued at ye wicked, to se the vngodly in soch prosperite. Psalms 73:4 For they are in no parell of death, but stonde fast like a palace. Psalms 73:5 They come in no misfortune like other folke, nether are they plaged like other men. Psalms 73:6 And this is the cause that they be so puft vp in pryde, & ouerwhelmed with cruelte and vnrigthuousnesse. Psalms 73:7 Their eyes swell for fatnesse, they do euen what they lyst. Psalms 73:8 Corrupte are they, and speake blasphemies maliciously, proude and presumptuous are their wordes. Psalms 73:9 They stretch forth their mouth vnto the heauen, & their tonge goeth thorow the worlde. Psalms 73:10 Therfore fall the people vnto them, and there out sucke they no small auauntage. Psalms 73:11 Tush (saye they) how shulde God perceaue it? is there knowlege in the most hyest? Psalms 73:12 Lo, these are the vngodly, these prospere in the worlde, these haue riches in possession.

the wound given thereby, diffidence.

Psalms 73:13 Shulde I then clense my hert in vayne (thought I) & wash my hondes in innocency? Psalms 73:14 Wherfore shulde I be then punyshed daylie, & be chastened euery mornynge?

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

Psalms 73:15 Yee I had allmost also sayde euen as they: but lo, then shulde I haue condemned the generacion of thy children. Psalms 73:16 Then thought I to vnderstonde this, but it was to harde for me. Psalms 73:17 Vntill I wete in to ye Sanctuary of God, & considered the ende of these men. Psalms 73:18 Namely, how thou hast set the in a slippery place, that thou maiest cast the downe headlynges & destroye the. Psalms 73:19 O how sodenly do they consume, perish, & come to a fearfull ende? Psalms 73:20 Yee euen like as a dreame when one awaketh, so makest thou their ymage to vanish out of the cite. Psalms 73:21 Thus my hert was greued, & it wente euen thorow my reynes. Psalms 73:22 So foolish was I and ignoraunt, and as it were a beest before the. Psalms 73:23 Neuerthelesse, I am allwaye by the, thou holdest me by my right hande. Psalms 73:24 Thou ledest me with thy coucel, and afterwarde receauest me vnto glory. Psalms 73:25 O what is there prepared for me in heauen? there is nothinge vpo earth, that I desyre in comparison of the. Psalms 73:26 My flesh and my herte fayleth, but God is the strength of my hert, and my porcion for euer. Psalms 73:27 For lo, they that forsake the, shal perishe, thou destroyest all them that committe fornicacion agaynst the. Psalms 73:28 But it is good for me, to holde me fast by God, to put my trust in the LORDE God, and to speake of all thy workes.
