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.7
Their eyes stand out with fatness: they have more than heart could wish.8
They are corrupt , and speakwickedly concerning oppression: they speakloftily.9
They set their mouth against the heavens, and their tonguewalketh through the earth.10
Therefore his peoplereturnhither: and waters of a full cup are wrung out to them.
And they say , How doth Godknow ? and is thereknowledge in the most High?12
Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches.
