God is truly good to Israel, to those whose lives are pure.
But my feet had almost stumbled. They had almost slipped
because I was envious of arrogant people when I saw the prosperity that wicked people enjoy.
They suffer no pain. Their bodies are healthy.
They have no drudgery in their lives like ordinary people. They are not plagued [with problems] like others.
That is why they wear arrogance like a necklace and acts of violence like clothing.
Their eyes peer out from their fat faces, and their imaginations run wild.
They ridicule. They speak maliciously. They speak arrogantly about oppression.
They verbally attack heaven, and they order people around on earth.
That is why God's people turn to wickedness and swallow their words.
Then wicked people ask, "What does God know?" "Does the Most High know anything?"
