Psalm 73 ©
1 The Psalmist sheweth that his faith had almost failed him on seeing the prosperity of the wicked; 15 but that, unwilling to give up the cause of goodness, he had at length discovered their fearful end: 23 his trust in God's present support and future favour: 27 he concludeth it best to adhere to God.
A Psalm 1of Asaph.
TRULY2 aGod is good to Israel, even to such as are 3of a bclean heart.
Therefore hpride *compasseth them about as a chain; violence covereth them as a garment.
They jare corrupt, and speak wickedly concerning oppression: kthey speak loftily.
*Verily rI have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands in innocency.
