Psalm 73:12-22 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
12 This is what the wicked are like-- always carefree,1 they increase in wealth.2 13 Surely in vain3 have I kept my heart pure; in vain have I washed my hands in innocence.4 14 All day long I have been plagued;5 I have been punished every morning. 15 If I had said, "I will speak thus," I would have betrayed your children. 16 When I tried to understand6 all this, it was oppressive to me 17 till I entered the sanctuary7 of God; then I understood their final destiny.8 18 Surely you place them on slippery ground;9 you cast them down to ruin.10 19 How suddenly11 are they destroyed, completely swept away12 by terrors! 20 As a dream13 when one awakes,14 so when you arise, O Lord, you will despise them as fantasies.15 21 When my heart was grieved and my spirit embittered, 22 I was senseless16 and ignorant; I was a brute beast17 before you.
