A PsalmH4210 of Asaph.H623 TrulyH389 GodH430 is goodH2896 to Israel,H3478 even to such as are of a cleanH1249 heart.H3824
But as for me, my feetH7272 were almostH4592 gone;H5186 my stepsH838 had wellH369 nearH4592 slipped.H8210
For I was enviousH7065 at the foolish,H1984 when I sawH7200 the prosperityH7965 of the wicked.H7563
For there are noH369 bandsH2784 in their death:H4194 but their strengthH193 is firm.H1277
They are not in troubleH5999 as other men;H582 neitherH3808 are they plaguedH5060 likeH5973 other men.H120
Therefore prideH1346 compassesH6059 them about as a chain;H6059 violenceH2555 coversH5848 them as a garment.H7897
Their eyesH5869 standH3318 out with fatness:H2459 they have moreH5674 than heartH3824 could wish.H4906
They are corrupt,H4167 and speakH1696 wickedlyH7451 concerning oppression:H6233 they speakH1696 loftily.H4791
They setH8371 their mouthH6310 against the heavens,H8064 and their tongueH3956 walksH1980 through the earth.H776
ThereforeH3651 his peopleH5971 returnH7725 here:H1988 and watersH4325 of a fullH4392 cup are wrungH4680 out to them.
And they say,H559 HowH349 does GodH410 know?H3045 and is there knowledgeH1844 in the mostH5945 High?H5945
Behold,H2009 theseH428 are the ungodly,H7563 who prosperH7951 in the world;H5769 they increaseH7685 in riches.H2428
TrulyH389 I have cleansedH2135 my heartH3824 in vain,H7385 and washedH7364 my handsH3709 in innocence.H5356
For allH3605 the dayH3117 long have I beenH1961 plagued,H5060 and chastenedH8433 every morning.H1242
IfH518 I say,H559 I will speakH5608 thus;H3644 behold,H2009 I should offendH898 against the generationH1755 of your children.H1121
When I thoughtH2803 to knowH3045 this,H2063 it was too painfulH5999 for me;
UntilH5704 I wentH935 intoH413 the sanctuaryH4720 of God;H410 then understoodH995 I their end.H319
SurelyH389 you did setH7896 them in slipperyH2513 places: you castH5307 them downH5307 into destruction.H4876
HowH349 are they brought into desolation,H8047 as in a moment!H7281 they are utterly consumedH8552 with terrors.H1091
As a dreamH2472 when one wakes;H6974 so, O Lord,H136 when you wake,H5782 you shall despiseH959 their image.H6754
ThusH3588 my heartH3824 was grieved,H2556 and I was prickedH8150 in my reins.H3629
So foolishH1198 was I, and ignorant:H3808 H3045 I was as a beastH929 beforeH5973 you.
Nevertheless I am continuallyH8548 with you: you have heldH270 me by my rightH3225 hand.H3027
You shall guideH5148 me with your counsel,H6098 and afterwardH310 receiveH3947 me to glory.H3519
WhomH4310 have I in heavenH8064 but you? and there is noneH3808 on earthH776 that I desireH2654 besideH5973 you.
My fleshH7607 and my heartH3824 fails:H3615 but GodH430 is the strengthH6697 of my heart,H3824 and my portionH2506 for ever.H5769
For, see,H2005 they that are farH7369 from you shall perish:H6 you have destroyedH6789 allH3605 them that goH935 a whoringH2181 from you.
But it is goodH2896 for me to draw nearH7132 to God:H430 I have putH7896 my trustH4268 in the LordH136 GOD,H3069 that I may declareH5608 allH3605 your works.H4399
