  1 Surely God is good to Israel, To those who are pure in heart.

  2 But as for me, my feet were nearly turned aside; My steps had almost slipped.

  3 For I was envious of the arrogant, When I saw the prosperity of the wicked.

  4 For they have no pangs in their death, And their body is well nourished.

  5 They do not find themselves in the hardship of men, Nor are they plagued like other men.

  6 Therefore pride is a necklace for them, Violence covers them like a garment.

  7 Their eyes bulge out from fatness; The imaginations of their heart overflow.

  8 They mock and wickedly speak of oppression; They speak loftily.

  9 They set their mouth against the heavens, And their tongue walks about on the earth.

10 Therefore his people return here, And waters of abundance are drained by them;

11 And they say, How does God know? And is there knowledge with the Most High?

12 Behold, these are the wicked; And always at ease, they heap up riches.

13 Surely I have purified my heart in vain, And I have washed my hands in innocence.

14 For I have been plagued all day long And chastened every morning.

15 If I had said, I will speak thus; Behold, I would have betrayed the generation of Your children.

16 When I considered this in order to understand it, It was a troublesome task in my sight,

17 Until I went into the sanctuary of God; Then I perceived their end.

18 Surely You set them in slippery places; You cast them down into ruins.

19 How they are made desolate in a moment! They are utterly consumed by terrors.

20 Like a dream, when one awakes, You, O Lord, Upon arising, will despise their image.

21 When my heart was embittered, And inwardly I was pricked;

22 I was brutish and knew nothing; I was like a beast before You.

23 Nevertheless I am continually with You; You have taken hold of my right hand.

24 You will guide me with Your counsel, And afterward You will receive me in glory.

25 Whom do I have in heaven but You? And besides You there is nothing I desire on earth.

26 My flesh and my heart fail, But God is the rock of my heart and my portion forever.

27 For behold, those who are far from You will perish; You destroy all who go about as harlots away from You.

28 But as for me, drawing near to God is good for me; I have made the Lord Jehovah my refuge, That I may declare all Your works.
