Bible: Psalm 73:21-28

73:21 Yes, 1  my spirit was bitter, 2 

and my insides felt sharp pain. 3 

73:22 I was ignorant 4  and lacked insight; 5 

I was as senseless as an animal before you. 6 

73:23 But I am continually with you;

you hold my right hand.

73:24 You guide 7  me by your wise advice,

and then you will lead me to a position of honor. 8 

73:25 Whom do I have in heaven but you?

I desire no one but you on earth. 9 

73:26 My flesh and my heart may grow weak, 10 

but God always 11  protects my heart and gives me stability. 12 

73:27 Yes, 13  look! Those far from you 14  die;

you destroy everyone who is unfaithful to you. 15 

73:28 But as for me, God’s presence is all I need. 16 

I have made the sovereign Lord my shelter,

as 17  I declare all the things you have done.
