My feet were slipping, and I was almost gone.

when I saw them prosper despite their wickedness.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 73:4 - They seem to live such painless lives;
their bodies are so healthy and strong.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 73:5 - They don’t have troubles like other people;
they’re not plagued with problems like everyone else.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 73:6 - They wear pride like a jeweled necklace
and clothe themselves with cruelty.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 73:7 - These fat cats have everything
their hearts could ever wish for!

and their words strut throughout the earth.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 73:10 - And so the people are dismayed and confused,
drinking in all their words.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 73:11 - “What does God know?” they ask.
“Does the Most High even know what’s happening?”

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 73:12 - Look at these wicked people—
enjoying a life of ease while their riches multiply.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 73:13 - Did I keep my heart pure for nothing?
Did I keep myself innocent for no reason?

every morning brings me pain.

But what a difficult task it is!

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 73:17 - Then I went into your sanctuary, O God,
and I finally understood the destiny of the wicked.

and send them sliding over the cliff to destruction.

completely swept away by terrors.

you will laugh at their silly ideas
as a person laughs at dreams in the morning.

and I was all torn up inside.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 73:22 - I was so foolish and ignorant—
I must have seemed like a senseless animal to you.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 73:23 - Yet I still belong to you;
you hold my right hand.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 73:24 - You guide me with your counsel,
leading me to a glorious destiny.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 73:25 - Whom have I in heaven but you?
I desire you more than anything on earth.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 73:26 - My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak,
but God remains the strength of my heart;
he is mine forever.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 73:27 - Those who desert him will perish,
for you destroy those who abandon you.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 73:28 - But as for me, how good it is to be near God!
I have made the Sovereign LORD my shelter,
and I will tell everyone about the wonderful things you do.
