Psalm 73 Why do the bad guys seem to get ahead? (Copy And Paste Edition)
[link to ucmpage.org]

I'm sure this bugs everybody.

Why do bad people prosper while the pure of heart suffer?

{1} Surely God is good to Israel, to those who are pure in heart.

{2} But as for me, my feet had almost slipped; I had nearly lost my foothold. {3} For I envied the arrogant when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.

{4} They have no struggles; their bodies are healthy and strong.

{5} They are free from the burdens common to man; they are not plagued by human ills.

{6} Therefore pride is their necklace; they clothe themselves with violence.

{7} From their callous hearts comes iniquity ; the evil conceits of their minds know no limits.

{8} They scoff, and speak with malice; in their arrogance they threaten oppression. . . This is what the wicked are like-- always carefree, they increase in wealth.

{13} Surely in vain have I kept my heart pure; in vain have I washed my hands in innocence.

{14} All day long I have been plagued; I have been punished every morning.

But, you see, David came to his senses! He continues in his psalm.

{15} If I had said, "I will speak thus," I would have betrayed your children.

{16} When I tried to understand all this, it was oppressive to me

{17} till I entered the sanctuary of God; then I understood their final destiny.

{18} Surely you place them on slippery ground; you cast them down to ruin.

{19} How suddenly are they destroyed, completely swept away by terrors!

{20} As a dream when one awakes, so when you arise, O Lord, you will despise them as fantasies.

{21} When my heart was grieved and my spirit embittered,

{22} I was senseless and ignorant; I was a brute beast before you.

They have the testosterone to back them up, and a mind that will not quit. You can make it big with, or without God. But in the end, the Godless will be degraded in heart, spirit, and body. Have faith.
