Chapter Summary
1 .1 Truly God is good to Israel, even to such as are of a clean heart.
2 . .2 But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped.
3 .3 For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.
4 .4 For there are no bands in their death: but their strength is firm.
5 .5 They are not in trouble as other men; neither are they plagued like other men.
6 . .6 Therefore pride compasseth them about as a chain; violence covereth them as a garment.
7 . .7 Their eyes stand out with fatness: they have more than heart could wish.
8 . .8 They are corrupt, and speak wickedly concerning oppression: they speak loftily.
9 .9 They set their mouth against the heavens, and their tongue walketh through the earth.
10 ǡ .10 Therefore his people return hither: and waters of a full cup are wrung out to them.
11 : 11 And they say, How doth God know? and is there knowledge in the most High?
12 .12 Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches.
13 .13 Verily I have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands in innocency.
14 .14 For all the day long have I been plagued, and chastened every morning.
15 ǡ .15 If I say, I will speak thus; behold, I should offend against the generation of thy children.
16 ǡ .16 When I thought to know this, it was too painful for me;
17 .17 Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end.
18 . .18 Surely thou didst set them in slippery places: thou castedst them down into destruction.
19 ! ǡ .19 How are they brought into desolation, as in a moment! they are utterly consumed with terrors.
20 .20 As a dream when one awaketh; so, O Lord, when thou awakest, thou shalt despise their image.
21 .21 Thus my heart was grieved, and I was pricked in my reins.
22 . .22 So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a beast before thee.
23 . .23 Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast holden me by my right hand.
24 .24 Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory.
25 .25 Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee.
26 . .26 My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.
27 . .27 For, lo, they that are far from thee shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee.
28 . .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.
