Surely God is good to Israel, to those who are pure in heart.12
But as for me, my feet had almost slipped;2 I had nearly lost my foothold.33
For I envied4 the arrogant when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.54
They have no struggles; their bodies are healthy and strong.a5
They are free6 from the burdens common to man; they are not plagued by human ills.
Therefore pride7 is their necklace;8 they clothe themselves with violence.97
From their callous hearts10 comes iniquityb; the evil conceits of their minds know no limits.
They scoff, and speak with malice;11 in their arrogance12 they threaten oppression.13
