The success of the wicked

7 Why do the wicked live, grow old, and even become strong? 8 Their children are always with them, their offspring in their sight, 9 their houses safe from dread, God's punishing stick not upon them. 10 Their bull always breeds successfully; their cows give birth and never miscarry. 11 They send forth their little ones like sheep; their infants bounce around. 12 They raise drum and lyre, rejoice at the sound of a flute. 13 They spend their days contentedly, go down to the gravea peacefully. 14 They say to God, "Turn away from us; we take no pleasure in knowing your ways; 15 who is the Almightyb that we should serve him, and what can we gain if we meet him?" 16 Look, isn't their well-being the work of their own hands? A sinner's logic is beyond me.
