"Is not God high in the heavens? See the highest stars, how lofty they are!
Therefore you say, 'What does God know? Can he judge through the deep darkness?
Thick clouds enwrap him, so that he does not see, and he walks on the vault of heaven.'
Will you keep to the old way which wicked men have trod?
They were snatched away before their time; their foundation was washed away.
They said to God, 'Depart from us,' and 'What can the Almighty do to us?'
Yet he filled their houses with good things--but the counsel of the wicked is far from me.
The righteous see it and are glad; the innocent laugh them to scorn,
saying, 'Surely our adversaries are cut off, and what they left the fire has consumed.'
"Agree with God, and be at peace; thereby good will come to you.
Receive instruction from his mouth, and lay up his words in your heart.
