Psalms 73

The prophet, prevailing in a temptation,

Psalms 73:1 {A Psalme of Asaph.} O how louyng is God vnto Israel, to suche as are of a cleane hert?

sheweth the occasion thereof, the prosperity of the wicked:

Psalms 73:2 Neuerthelesse my fete were almost gone, my treadynges had well nye slypte. Psalms 73:3 And why? I was greued at the wicked, to se the vngodly in suche prosperitie. Psalms 73:4 For they are in no parell of deathe, but stande fast lyke a palace. Psalms 73:5 They come in no misfortune lyke other folke, neither are they plaged like other men. Psalms 73:6 And this is þe cause that they be so puft vp in pryde, and ouerwhelmed with crueltie & vnrighteousnesse. Psalms 73:7 Their eyes swell for fatnesse, they do euen what they lyst. Psalms 73:8 Corrupte are they, and speake blasphemyes maliciouslye, proude and presumpteous are their wordes. Psalms 73:9 They stretche forth their mouthe vnto the heauen, and their tongue goeth thorow the worlde. Psalms 73:10 Therfore fall the people vnto them, and thereout sucke they no small auauntage. Psalms 73:11 Tush (saye they) howe shoulde God perceiue it? is there knowlege in the most hyest? Psalms 73:12 Lo, these are the vngodly, these prospere in the worlde, these haue ryches in possession.

the wound given thereby, diffidence.

Psalms 73:13 Shoulde I then clense my herte in vayne (thougt I) and washe my handes in innocency? Psalms 73:14 Wherefore shoulde I be then punyshed dayly, & 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 Yea, I had almoost also sayd euen as they: but lo, then shoulde I haue condemned the generacion of thy chyldren. Psalms 73:16 Then thought I, to vnderstande this, but it was to harde for me. Psalms 73:17 Vntyll I wente into the Sanctuary of God, and considred the ende of these men. Psalms 73:18 Namely, how thou hast set them in a slippery place, that thou mayst cast them doune headlinges and destroye them. Psalms 73:19 O how sodenly do they consume, perysh, and come to a fearful ende? Psalms 73:20 Yea, euen like as a dreame when one awaketh, so makest thou their ymage too vanysh out of the cytye. Psalms 73:21 Thus my hert was greued, and it wente euen thorow my reynes. Psalms 73:22 So folysh was I and ignoraunte, and as it were a beast before the. Psalms 73:23 Neuerthelesse I am al waye by the, thou holdest me by my right hande. Psalms 73:24 Thou leadest me with thy counsayll, and afterwarde receyuest me vnto glory. Psalms 73:25 O what is there prepared for me in heauen? there is nothinge vpon earthe, that I desyre in comparyson of the. Psalms 73:26 My fleash & my hert fayleth, but God is the strength of my herte, and my porcion for euer. Psalms 73:27 For lo, they that forsake the shall perysh: 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.
