Look at me. Isn't that enough to make you stare in shocked silence?
When I think of what has happened to me, I am stunned, and I tremble and shake.
Why does God let evil people live, let them grow old and prosper?
They have children and grandchildren, and live to watch them all grow up.
God does not bring disaster on their homes; they never have to live in terror.
Yes, all their cattle breed and give birth without trouble.
Their children run and play like lambs
and dance to the music of harps and flutes.
They live out their lives in peace and quietly die without suffering.
The wicked tell God to leave them alone; they don't want to know his will for their lives.
They think there is no need to serve God nor any advantage in praying to him.
