Book of Psalms Chapter 73

(Hebrew Verse 1: A hymn to Asaf)*

PSALMS 73:1 Truly God is good to Israel, even to such as are of a clean heart.

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

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

PSALMS 73:4 For there are no bands in their death: but their strength is firm.

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

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

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

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

PSALMS 73:9 They set their mouth against the heavens, and their tongue walketh through the earth.

PSALMS 73:10 Therefore his people return hither: and waters of a full cup are wrung out to them.

PSALMS 73:11 And they say, How doth God know? and is there knowledge in the most High?

PSALMS 73:12 Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches.

PSALMS 73:13 Verily I have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands in innocency.

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

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

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

PSALMS 73:17 Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end.

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

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

PSALMS 73:20 As a dream when one awaketh; so, O Lord, when thou awakest, thou shalt despise their image.

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

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

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

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

PSALMS 73:25 Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee.

PSALMS 73:26 My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.

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

PSALMS 73:28 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.

History of the King James Bible

Meaning and pronunciation of Hebrew names in the Old Testament

Preface to the First Edition of the King James Bible

The bible and Zionism

The Bible, the Old Testament, has become a mainstay of human culture, but it is first and foremost a historical document of the Jewish people and our culture. It tells the story of our ancient kingdoms and civilization in the Land of Israel, and therefore it kept alive the tie of the people of Israel to the land of Israel for 2000 years. It forms the moral and cultural basis of Zionist ideology and aspirations.

The Bible, the Old Testament, is accepted by the three major Western faiths. It is a major work of Western civilization. The Bible documents the historic connection of the Jewish people to the land of Israel, even for those who do not believe that the Bible is the literal word of God, and even for those who do not believe in God at all. It is the historic epic of the Jewish people in our land.
