For I envied1 the arrogant when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.24
They have no struggles; their bodies are healthy and strong.a5
They are free3 from the burdens common to man; they are not plagued by human ills.
Therefore pride4 is their necklace;5 they clothe themselves with violence.67
From their callous hearts7 comes iniquityb; the evil conceits of their minds know no limits.
They scoff, and speak with malice;8 in their arrogance9 they threaten oppression.109
Their mouths lay claim to heaven, and their tongues take possession of the earth.
