73:1 A Psalm [H4210] of Asaph [H623] . Truly God [H430] [is] good [H2896] to Israel [H3478] , [even] to such as are of a clean [H1249] heart [H3824] .(of: or, for)(Truly: or, Yet)(of: Heb. clean of heart)
73:2 But as for me, my feet [H7272] were almost [H4592] gone [H5186] [H5186] ; my steps [H838] had well nigh [H369] slipped [H8210] .
73:3 For I was envious [H7065] at the foolish [H1984] , [when] I saw [H7200] the prosperity [H7965] of the wicked [H7563] .
73:4 For [there are] no bands [H2784] in their death [H4194] : but their strength [H193] [is] firm [H1277] .(firm: Heb. fat)
73:5 They [are] not in trouble [H5999] [as other] men [H582] ; neither are they plagued [H5060] like [H5973] [other] men [H120] .(in: Heb. in the trouble of other men)(like: Heb. with)
73:6 Therefore pride [H1346] compasseth them about as a chain [H6059] ; violence [H2555] covereth [H5848] them [as] a garment [H7897] .
73:7 Their eyes [H5869] stand out [H3318] with fatness [H2459] : they have more [H5674] than heart [H3824] could wish [H4906] .(have: Heb. pass the thoughts of the heart)
73:8 They are corrupt [H4167] , and speak [H1696] wickedly [H7451] [concerning] oppression [H6233] : they speak [H1696] loftily [H4791] .
73:9 They set [H8371] their mouth [H6310] against the heavens [H8064] , and their tongue [H3956] walketh [H1980] through the earth [H776] .
73:10 Therefore his people [H5971] return [H7725] [H7725] hither [H1988] : and waters [H4325] of a full [H4392] [cup] are wrung out [H4680] to them.
73:11 And they say [H559] , How doth God [H410] know [H3045] ? and is there [H3426] knowledge [H1844] in the most High [H5945] ?
73:12 Behold, these [are] the ungodly [H7563] , who prosper [H7961] in the world [H5769] ; they increase [H7685] [in] riches [H2428] .
73:13 Verily I have cleansed [H2135] my heart [H3824] [in] vain [H7385] , and washed [H7364] my hands [H3709] in innocency [H5356] .
73:14 For all the day [H3117] long have I been plagued [H5060] , and chastened [H8433] every morning [H1242] .(chastened: Heb. my chastisement was)
73:15 If I say [H559] , I will speak [H5608] thus [H3644] ; behold, I should offend [H898] [against] the generation [H1755] of thy children [H1121] .
73:16 When I thought [H2803] to know [H3045] this, it [was] too painful [H5999] for me [H5869] ;(too: Heb. labour in mine eyes)
73:17 Until I went [H935] into the sanctuary [H4720] of God [H410] ; [then] understood [H995] I their end [H319] .
73:18 Surely thou didst set [H7896] them in slippery places [H2513] : thou castedst them down [H5307] into destruction [H4876] .
73:19 How are they [brought] into desolation [H8047] , as in a moment [H7281] ! they are utterly [H5486] consumed [H8552] with terrors [H1091] .
73:20 As a dream [H2472] when [one] awaketh [H6974] ; [so], O Lord [H136] , when thou awakest [H5782] , thou shalt despise [H959] their image [H6754] .
73:21 Thus my heart [H3824] was grieved [H2556] , and I was pricked [H8150] in my reins [H3629] .
73:22 So foolish [H1198] [was] I, and ignorant [H3045] : I was [as] a beast [H929] before thee.(ignorant: Heb. I knew not)(before Heb. with)
73:23 Nevertheless I [am] continually [H8548] with thee: thou hast holden [H270] [me] by my right [H3225] hand [H3027] .
73:24 Thou shalt guide [H5148] me with thy counsel [H6098] , and afterward [H310] receive [H3947] me [to] glory [H3519] .
73:25 Whom have I in heaven [H8064] [but thee]? and [there is] none upon earth [H776] [that] I desire [H2654] beside thee.
73:26 My flesh [H7607] and my heart [H3824] faileth [H3615] : [but] God [H430] [is] the strength [H6697] of my heart [H3824] , and my portion [H2506] for ever [H5769] .(strength: Heb. rock)
73:27 For, lo, they that are far [H7369] from thee shall perish [H6] : thou hast destroyed [H6789] all them that go a whoring [H2181] from thee.
73:28 But [H589] [it is] good [H2896] for me to draw near [H7132] to God [H430] : I have put [H7896] my trust [H4268] in the Lord [H136] GOD [H3069] , that I may declare [H5608] all thy works [H4399] .
