A mizmor (מזמור) of Asaph (gather)

73:1 Truly Elohim (אלהים) [is] good to Yisrael, [even] to such as are of a barei (pure) levav.

73:2 But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped.

73:3 For I was envious at the foolish, [when] I saw the prosperity of the wicked.

73:4 For [there are] no bands in their death: but their strength (ul) [is] firm.

73:5 They [are] not in trouble [as other] men; neither are they plagued like [other] men.

73:6 Therefore pride compasseth them about as a chain; violence covereth them [as] a garment.

73:7 Their eyes stand out with fatness: they have more than levav could wish.

73:8 They are corrupt, and speak wickedly [concerning] oppression: they speak loftily.

73:9 They set their mouth against the shamayim, and their lashon (tongue) halak through the eretz.

73:10 Therefore his people return hither: and mayim of a full [cup] are wrung out to them.

73:11 And they say, How doth Elohim (אלהים) know? and is there knowledge in ha Elyon (most High)?

73:12 Hinnei, these [are] the resha'im (wicked), who prosper in ha olam; they increase [in] riches.

73:13 Verily I have cleansed my levav [in] vain, and washed my hands in innocency.

73:14 For all the day long have I been plagued, and chastened every morning.

73:15 If I say, I will speak thus; behold, I should offend [against] the generation of thy children.

73:16 When I thought to know this, it [was] too painful for me;

73:17 Until I went into the Mikdeshei EL (אל); [then] understood I their end.

73:18 Surely thou didst set them in slippery places: thou castedst them down into destruction.

73:19 How are they [brought] into desolation, as in a moment! they are utterly consumed with terrors.

73:20 As a dream when [one] awaketh; [so], O Adonay (אדני), when thou awakest, thou shalt despise their image.

73:21 Thus my levav was grieved, and I was pricked in my reins.

73:22 So foolish [was] I, and ignorant: I was [as] a beast before thee.

73:23 Nevertheless I [am] continually with thee: thou hast holden [me] by my right hand.

73:24 Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me [to] glory.

73:25 Whom have I in shamayim [but thee]? and [there is] none upon eretz [that] I desire beside thee.

73:26 My flesh and my levav faileth: [but] Elohim (אלהים) [is] the tzur of my levav, and my portion forever.

73:27 For, lo, they that are far from thee shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee.

73:28 But [it is] good for me to draw near to Elohim (אלהים): I have put my trust in Adonay (אדני) YHWH (יהוה), that I may declare all thy works.
