Psalm 73

Good morning brothers and sisters. What to do when you feel all alone? You turn to the Lord.

1- Truly God is good to Israel, to such as are pure in heart.

2- But as for me, my feet had almost stumbled; my steps had nearly slipped.

3- For I was envious of the boastful, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.

4- For there are no pangs in their death, but their strength is firm.

5- They are not in trouble as other men, nor are they plagued like other men.

6- Therefore pride serves as their necklace, violence covers them like a garment.

7- Their eyes bulge with abundance; they have more than heart could wish.

8- They scoff and speak wickedly concerning oppression; they speak loftily.

9- They set their mouth against the heavens, and their tongue walks through the earth.

10- Therefore his people return here, and waters of a full cup are drained by them.

11- And they say, "How does God know? And is there knowledge in the Most Hight?"

12- Behold, these are the ungodly, who are always at ease; they increase in riches.

13- Surely I have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands in innocence.

14- For all day long I have been plagued, and chastened every morning.

15- If I had said, "I will speak thus," behold, I would have been untrue to the generation of Your children.

16- When I thought how to understand this, it was too painful for me-

17- Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then I understood their end.

18- Surely You set them in slippery places; You cast them down to destruction.

19- Oh, how they are brought to desolation as in a moment! They are utterly consumed with terrors.

20- As a dream when one awakes, so Lord, when You awake, You shall despise their image.

21- Thus my heart was grieved, and I was vexed in my mind.

22- I was so foolish and ignorant; I was like a beast before You.

23- Nevertheless I am continually with You; You hold me by my right hand.

24- You will guide me with Your counsel, and afterward receive me to glory.

25- Whom have I in heaven but You? And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You.

26- My flesh and my heart fail; but God is my strength of my heart and my portion forever.

27- For indeed, those who are far from You shall perish; You have destroyed all those who desert You for harlotry.

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 Your works.

Have a blessed day!
