Even to such as are †of a clean heart.
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.
Thou hast holden me by my right hand.
24 jThou shalt guide me with thy counsel,
And afterward jjreceive me to glory.
And there is none upon earth that I desire kbeside thee.
26 lMy flesh and my heart faileth:
27 For, lo, othey that are far from thee shall perish:
Thou hast destroyed all them that pgo a whoring from thee.
I have put my trust in the Lord God,
That I may qdeclare all thy works.
