1   YEA, God is good to Israel, 
          To each pure-hearted one.
2   But as for me, my steps nigh slipped,
          My feet were almost gone.
3   For I was envious, and grudged
          The foolish folk to see,
     When I perceived wicked men
          Enjoy prosperity.

4   For still their strength continues firm;
          Their death of bands is free.
5   Not troubled they like other men,
          Nor plagued, as others be.
6   Therefore their pride, like to a chain,
          Them compasseth about;
     And, as a garment, violence
          Doth cover them throughout.

7   Their eyes stand out with fat; they have
          More than their hearts could seek; 
8   They mock, and loftlly of wrong
          And of oppression speak.
9   They set their mouth even in the heavens
          In proud and haughty talk;
     Their boastful and reviling tongue
          Upon the earth doth walk.

10 His people oftentimes for this
          Look back, and turn about;
     Since waters of so full a cup
          To these are poured out.
11 And thus they say, How can it be
          That God these things doth know?
     Or, Can there in the Highest be
          Knowledge of things below?

12 Lo these the wicked are, and yet
          They prosper at their will
     In worldy things; they do increase
          In wealth and riches still.
13 I verily have done in vain
          My heart to purify;
     To no effect in innocence
          My hands made clean have I.

14 For daily, and all day throughout
          Great plagues I suffered have; 
     Yea, every morning I anew
          Did chastisement receive.
15 If in this manner foolishly
          To speak I would intend,
     The generation of thy sons,
          Behold, I should offend.

16 But when I thought this thing to know,
          It was too hard for me,
17 Till to God's sanctuary I went;
          Then I their end did see.
18 Upon a slippery place them set
          Assuredly thou hast;
     And down into destruction thou
          Dost suddenly them cast.

19 How in a moment suddenly
          To ruin brought are they!
     With fearful terrors utterly
          They are consumed away.
20 Even like unto a dream, when one
          From sleeping doth arise;
     So thou, O Lord, when thou awak'st,
          Their image shalt despise.

21 Thus I was grieved in my heart,
          And in my reins oppressed.
22 So rude was I, and ignorant,
          And in thy sight a beast.
23 And yet, O Lord, I do abide
          Continually with thee:
     Thou dost me take by my right hand,
          And still upholdest me.

24 Thou with thy counsel, while I live,
          Wilt me conduct and guide; 
     And to thy glory afterward
          Receive me to abide.
25 Whom have I in the heavens high
          But thee, O Lord, alone?
     And in the earth whom I desire
          Besides thee there is none.

26 My flesh and heart do faint and fail;
          But God doth fail me never:
     For of my heart God is the strength;
          My portion sure for ever.
27 For, 1o, they that are far from thee
          For ever perish shall;
     Them that forsake thee wantonly
          Thou hast destroyed all.

28 But surely it is good for me
          That I draw near to God;
     In God I trust that all thy works
          I may declare abroad.

BIBLE PASSAGE:

1 ¶ Truly God is good to Israel, even to such as are of a clean heart.
2 But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped.
3 For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.
4 For there are no bands in their death: but their strength is firm.
5 They are not in trouble as other men; neither are they plagued like other men.
6 Therefore pride compasseth them about as a chain; violence covereth them as a garment.
7 Their eyes stand out with fatness: they have more than heart could wish.
8 They are corrupt, and speak wickedly concerning oppression: they speak loftily.
9 They set their mouth against the heavens, and their tongue walketh through the earth.
10 Therefore his people return hither: and waters of a full cup are wrung out to them.
11 And they say, How doth God know? and is there knowledge in the most High?
12 Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches.
13 Verily I have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands in innocency.
14 For all the day long have I been plagued, and chastened every morning.
15 ¶ If I say, I will speak thus; behold, I should offend against the generation of thy children.
16 When I thought to know this, it was too painful for me;
17 Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end.
18 Surely thou didst set them in slippery places: thou castedst them down into destruction.
19 How are they brought into desolation, as in a moment! they are utterly consumed with terrors.
20 As a dream when one awaketh; so, O Lord, when thou awakest, thou shalt despise their image.
21 ¶ Thus my heart was grieved, and I was pricked in my reins.
22 So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a beast before thee.
23 Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast holden me by my right hand.
24 Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory.
25 Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee.
26 My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.
27 For, lo, they that are far from thee shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee.
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 thy works.
