Psalm 73

WBT 1 A Psalm of Asaph. Truly God [is] good to Israel, [even] to such as are of a clean heart. NIV 1 Surely God is good to Israel, to those who are pure in heart. WBT 2 But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped. NIV 2 But as for me, my feet had almost slipped; I had nearly lost my foothold. WBT 3 For I was envious at the foolish, [when] I saw the prosperity of the wicked. NIV 3 For I envied the arrogant when I saw the prosperity of the wicked. WBT 4 For [there are] no bands in their death: but their strength [is] firm. NIV 4 They have no struggles; their bodies are healthy and strong. WBT 5 They [are] not in trouble [as other] men; neither are they afflicted like [other] men. NIV 5 They are free from common human burdens; they are not plagued by human ills. WBT 6 Therefore pride encompasseth them as a chain; violence covereth them [as] a garment. NIV 6 Therefore pride is their necklace; they clothe themselves with violence. WBT 7 Their eyes stand out with fatness: they have more than heart could wish. NIV 7 From their callous hearts comes iniquity ; their evil imaginations have no limits. WBT 8 They are corrupt, and speak wickedly [concerning] oppression: they speak loftily. NIV 8 They scoff, and speak with malice; with arrogance they threaten oppression. WBT 9 They set their mouth against the heavens, and their tongue walketh through the earth. NIV 9 Their mouths lay claim to heaven, and their tongues take possession of the earth. WBT 10 Therefore his people return hither: and waters of a full [cup] are wrung out to them. NIV 10 Therefore their people turn to them and drink up waters in abundance. WBT 11 And they say, How doth God know? and is there knowledge in the Most High? NIV 11 They say, “How would God know? Does the Most High know anything?” WBT 12 Behold, these [are] the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase [in] riches. NIV 12 This is what the wicked are like— always free of care, they go on amassing wealth. WBT 13 Verily I have cleansed my heart [in] vain, and washed my hands in innocence. NIV 13 Surely in vain I have kept my heart pure and have washed my hands in innocence. WBT 14 For all the day long have I been afflicted, and chastened every morning. NIV 14 All day long I have been afflicted, and every morning brings new punishments. WBT 15 If I say, I will speak thus; behold, I should offend [against] the generation of thy children. NIV 15 If I had spoken out like that, I would have betrayed your children. WBT 16 When I thought to know this, it [was] too painful for me; NIV 16 When I tried to understand all this, it troubled me deeply WBT 17 Until I went into the sanctuary of God; [then] I understood their end. NIV 17 till I entered the sanctuary of God; then I understood their final destiny. WBT 18 Surely thou didst set them in slippery places: thou didst cast them down into destruction. NIV 18 Surely you place them on slippery ground; you cast them down to ruin. WBT 19 How are they [brought] into desolation, as in a moment! they are utterly consumed with terrors. NIV 19 How suddenly are they destroyed, completely swept away by terrors! WBT 20 As a dream when [one] awaketh; [so], O Lord, when thou awakest, thou wilt despise their image. NIV 20 They are like a dream when one awakes; when you arise, Lord, you will despise them as fantasies. WBT 21 Thus my heart was grieved, and I was pricked in my reins. NIV 21 When my heart was grieved and my spirit embittered, WBT 22 So foolish [was] I, and ignorant: I was [as] a beast before thee. NIV 22 I was senseless and ignorant; I was a brute beast before you. WBT 23 Nevertheless I [am] continually with thee: thou hast held [me] by my right hand. NIV 23 Yet I am always with you; you hold me by my right hand. WBT 24 Thou wilt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me [to] glory. NIV 24 You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory. WBT 25 Whom have I in heaven [but thee]? and [there is] none upon earth [that] I desire besides thee. NIV 25 Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you. WBT 26 My flesh and my heart faileth: [but] God [is] the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever. NIV 26 My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. WBT 27 For lo, they that are far from thee shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them that go astray from thee. NIV 27 Those who are far from you will perish; you destroy all who are unfaithful to you. WBT 28 But [it is] good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all thy works. NIV 28 But as for me, it is good to be near God. I have made the Sovereign LORD my refuge; I will tell of all your deeds.
