Bible: Psalm 73:15-28
73:15 If I had publicized these thoughts, 1
I would have betrayed your loyal followers. 2
73:16 When I tried to make sense of this,
it was troubling to me. 3
73:17 Then I entered the precincts of God’s temple, 4
and understood the destiny of the wicked. 5
73:18 Surely 6 you put them in slippery places;
you bring them down 7 to ruin.
73:19 How desolate they become in a mere moment!
Terrifying judgments make their demise complete! 8
73:20 They are like a dream after one wakes up. 9
and my insides felt sharp pain. 14
I was as senseless as an animal before you. 17
73:23 But I am continually with you;
you hold my right hand.
73:24 You guide 18 me by your wise advice,
and then you will lead me to a position of honor. 19
73:25 Whom do I have in heaven but you?
I desire no one but you on earth. 20
73:26 My flesh and my heart may grow weak, 21
you destroy everyone who is unfaithful to you. 26
73:28 But as for me, God’s presence is all I need. 27
I have made the sovereign
as 28 I declare all the things you have done.
