2 But as for me, my feet were almost bgone;
My steps had well nigh slipped.
When I saw the fprosperity of the wicked.
4 For there are no gbands in their death:
But their strength is †firm.
5 They are not †in trouble as other men;
Violence covereth them jas a garment.
7 kTheir eyes stand out with fatness:
†They have more than heart could wish.
And their tongue walketh through the earth.
10 nTherefore his people return hither:
11 And they say, qHow doth God know?
And is there knowledge in the most High?
rWho prosper in the world; they increase in riches.
13 sVerily I have cleansed my heart in vain,
And twashed my hands in innocency.
14 For all the day long have I been hplagued,
15 If I say, I will speak uthus;
Behold, I should offend against vthe generation of thy children.
16 When I wthought to know this,
†It was too painful for me;
17 Until I went into xthe sanctuary of God;
Thou castedst them down into bdestruction.
19 How are they brought into desolation, cas in a moment!
20 fAs a dream when one awaketh;
So, O Lord, gwhen thou awakest, thou shalt despise their image.
And I was pricked in my reins.
