Truly God is good to Israel, even to such as are of a cleanheart.2
But as for me, my feet were almostgone ; my steps had well nighslipped .
For I was envious at the foolish , when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.4
For there are no bands in their death: but their strength is firm.a5
They are not in trouble as other men; neither are they plaguedlike other men.6
Therefore pride compasseth them about as a chain ; violencecovereth them as a garment.
