Psalms 73

The prophet, prevailing in a temptation,

Psalms 73:1 {BOOK THE THIRD} {A Melody of Asaph.} Nothing but good, is God, Unto Israel, Unto the pure in heart.

sheweth the occasion thereof, the prosperity of the wicked:

Psalms 73:2 But, as for me,—My feet had, almost stumbled, My steps had, well-nigh slipped; Psalms 73:3 For I was envious of the boasters, At the prosperity of the lawless, used I to look. Psalms 73:4 For they have no pangs in their death, And vigorous is their body; Psalms 73:5 Of the toil of weak mortals, have they none, Nor, with the sons of earth, are they hard smitten. Psalms 73:6 For this cause, doth arrogance deck them as a neck-chain, And a garment of wrong is their attire; Psalms 73:7 Their iniquity, hath proceeded from fatness, They have surpassed the imaginations of the heart; Psalms 73:8 They mock, and wickedly command oppression, From on high, they command; Psalms 73:9 They have set, in the heavens, their mouth, And, their tongue, marcheth through the earth. Psalms 73:10 Therefore must his people return thither, And, the waters of abundance, are drained by them; Psalms 73:11 And they say—How doth GOD know? And is there knowledge in the Most High? Psalms 73:12 Lo! these, are the lawless, Who are secure for an age, They have attained unto wealth.

the wound given thereby, diffidence.

Psalms 73:13 Altogether in vain, Have I cleansed my heart, And bathed in pureness, my hands; Psalms 73:14 And yet been smitten all the day, And been rebuked morning by morning!

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

Psalms 73:15 If I had thought, I will relate it thus, Lo! the circle of thy sons, had I betrayed. Psalms 73:16 When I reasoned, that I might understand this, A vexation, it was in mine eyes: Psalms 73:17 Until I could enter the holy places of God,—Could give heed to their hereafter:— Psalms 73:18 Surely, in slippery places, dost thou set them,—Thou hast suffered them to fall into places of danger. Psalms 73:19 How have they become desolate, as in a moment! They have ceased—come to an end, by reason of calamities. Psalms 73:20 As the dream of him that waketh, O my Lord! when rousing thyself up, their shadowy being, wilt thou despise. Psalms 73:21 But my heart had grown embittered, And, in my reins, had I received wounds; Psalms 73:22 But, I, was brutish, and could not perceive, Like the beasts, had I become before thee. Psalms 73:23 Nevertheless, I, am continually before thee, Thou hast taken hold of my right hand; Psalms 73:24 By thy counsel, wilt thou guide me, And, afterwards, unto glory, wilt thou take me. Psalms 73:25 Whom have I in the heavens? And, compared with thee, there is nothing I desire on earth. Psalms 73:26 Failed have my flesh and my heart, The rock of my heart—and my portion, is God unto times age-abiding. Psalms 73:27 For lo! they who are far from thee, shall perish, Thou hast put an end to every one who wandered unchastely from thee. Psalms 73:28 But, as for me, the drawing near of God, is my blessedness,—I have made, of My Lord Yahweh, my refuge,—That I may recount all thy works.
