Psalms 73

The prophet, prevailing in a temptation,

Psalms 73:1 {A Psalme committed to Asaph.} Yet God is good to Israel: euen, to the pure in heart.

sheweth the occasion thereof, the prosperity of the wicked:

Psalms 73:2 As for me, my feete were almost gone: my steps had welneere slipt. Psalms 73:3 For I feared at the foolish, when I sawe the prosperitie of the wicked. Psalms 73:4 For there are no bandes in their death, but they are lustie and strong. Psalms 73:5 They are not in trouble as other men, neither are they plagued with other men. Psalms 73:6 Therefore pride is as a chayne vnto them, and crueltie couereth them as a garment. Psalms 73:7 Their eyes stande out for fatnesse: they haue more then heart can wish. Psalms 73:8 They are licentious, and speake wickedly of their oppression: they talke presumptuously. Psalms 73:9 They set their mouth against heauen, and their tongue walketh through the earth. Psalms 73:10 Therefore his people turne hither: for waters of a full cup are wrung out to them. Psalms 73:11 And they say, Howe doeth God know it? or is there knowledge in the most High? Psalms 73:12 Lo, these are the wicked, yet prosper they alway, and increase in riches.

the wound given thereby, diffidence.

Psalms 73:13 Certainely I haue clensed mine heart in vaine, and washed mine hands in innocencie. Psalms 73:14 For dayly haue I bene punished, 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 iudge thus, beholde the generation of thy children: I haue trespassed. Psalms 73:16 Then thought I to know this, but it was too painefull for me, Psalms 73:17 Vntill I went into the Sanctuarie of God: then vnderstoode I their ende. Psalms 73:18 Surely thou hast set them in slipperie places, and castest them downe into desolation. Psalms 73:19 How suddenly are they destroyed, perished and horribly consumed, Psalms 73:20 As a dreame when one awaketh! O Lord, when thou raisest vs vp, thou shalt make their image despised. Psalms 73:21 Certainely mine heart was vexed, and I was pricked in my reines: Psalms 73:22 So foolish was I & ignorant: I was a beast before thee. Psalms 73:23 Yet I was alway with thee: thou hast holden me by my right hand. Psalms 73:24 Thou wilt guide me by thy counsell, and afterward receiue me to glory. Psalms 73:25 Whom haue I in heauen but thee? and I haue desired none in the earth with thee. Psalms 73:26 My flesh fayleth and mine heart also: but God is the strength of mine heart, and my portion for euer. Psalms 73:27 For loe, they that withdrawe themselues from thee, shall perish: thou destroyest all them that goe a whoring from thee. Psalms 73:28 As for me, it is good for me to draw neere to God: therefore I haue put my trust in the Lord God, that I may declare all thy workes.
