A Psalm of Asaph. Truly God is good to the upright, to those who are pure in heart.
But as for me, my feet had almost stumbled, my steps had well nigh slipped.
For I was envious of the arrogant, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.
For they have no pangs; their bodies are sound and sleek.
They are not in trouble as other men are; they are not stricken like other men.
Therefore pride is their necklace; violence covers them as a garment.
