Psalm 73

ASV 1 Surely God is good to Israel, [Even] to such as are pure in heart. NIV 1 Surely God is good to Israel, to those who are pure in heart. ASV 2 But as for me, my feet were almost gone; My steps had well nigh slipped. NIV 2 But as for me, my feet had almost slipped; I had nearly lost my foothold. ASV 3 For I was envious at the arrogant, When I saw the prosperity of the wicked. NIV 3 For I envied the arrogant when I saw the prosperity of the wicked. ASV 4 For there are no pangs in their death; But their strength is firm. NIV 4 They have no struggles; their bodies are healthy and strong. ASV 5 They are not in trouble as [other] men; Neither are they plagued like [other] men. NIV 5 They are free from the burdens common to man; they are not plagued by human ills. ASV 6 Therefore pride is as a chain about their neck; Violence covereth them as a garment. NIV 6 Therefore pride is their necklace; they clothe themselves with violence. ASV 7 Their eyes stand out with fatness: They have more than heart could wish. NIV 7 From their callous hearts comes iniquity; the evil conceits of their minds know no limits. ASV 8 They scoff, and in wickedness utter oppression: They speak loftily. NIV 8 They scoff, and speak with malice; in their arrogance they threaten oppression. ASV 9 They have set their mouth in the heavens, And their tongue walketh through the earth. NIV 9 Their mouths lay claim to heaven, and their tongues take possession of the earth. ASV 10 Therefore his people return hither: And waters of a full [cup] are drained by them. NIV 10 Therefore their people turn to them and drink up waters in abundance. ASV 11 And they say, How doth God know? And is there knowledge in the Most High? NIV 11 They say, "How can God know? Does the Most High have knowledge?" ASV 12 Behold, these are the wicked; And, being alway at ease, they increase in riches. NIV 12 This is what the wicked are like-- always carefree, they increase in wealth. ASV 13 Surely in vain have I cleansed my heart, And washed my hands in innocency; NIV 13 Surely in vain have I kept my heart pure; in vain have I washed my hands in innocence. ASV 14 For all the day long have I been plagued, And chastened every morning. NIV 14 All day long I have been plagued; I have been punished every morning. ASV 15 If I had said, I will speak thus; Behold, I had dealt treacherously with the generation of thy children. NIV 15 If I had said, "I will speak thus," I would have betrayed your children. ASV 16 When I thought how I might know this, It was too painful for me; NIV 16 When I tried to understand all this, it was oppressive to me ASV 17 Until I went into the sanctuary of God, And considered their latter end. NIV 17 till I entered the sanctuary of God; then I understood their final destiny. ASV 18 Surely thou settest them in slippery places: Thou castest them down to destruction. NIV 18 Surely you place them on slippery ground; you cast them down to ruin. ASV 19 How are they become a desolation in a moment! They are utterly consumed with terrors. NIV 19 How suddenly are they destroyed, completely swept away by terrors! ASV 20 As a dream when one awaketh, So, O Lord, when thou awakest, thou wilt despise their image. NIV 20 As a dream when one awakes, so when you arise, O Lord, you will despise them as fantasies. ASV 21 For my soul was grieved, And I was pricked in my heart: NIV 21 When my heart was grieved and my spirit embittered, ASV 22 So brutish was I, and ignorant; I was [as] a beast before thee. NIV 22 I was senseless and ignorant; I was a brute beast before you. ASV 23 Nevertheless I am continually with thee: Thou hast holden my right hand. NIV 23 Yet I am always with you; you hold me by my right hand. ASV 24 Thou wilt guide me with thy counsel, And afterward receive me to glory. NIV 24 You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory. ASV 25 Whom have I in heaven [but thee]? And there is none upon earth that I desire besides thee. NIV 25 Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you. ASV 26 My flesh and my heart faileth; [But] God is the strength of my heart and my portion for ever. NIV 26 My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. ASV 27 For, lo, they that are far from thee shall perish: Thou hast destroyed all them that play the harlot, [departing] from thee. NIV 27 Those who are far from you will perish; you destroy all who are unfaithful to you. ASV 28 But it is good for me to draw near unto God: I have made the Lord Jehovah my refuge, That I may tell of all thy works. NIV 28 But as for me, it is good to be near God. I have made the Sovereign LORD my refuge; I will tell of all your deeds.
