Psalm 73:15-28

If I say, I will speak thus; behold, I should offend against the generation of thy children.  (16)  When I thought to know this, it was too painful for me;  (17)  Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end.  (18)  Surely thou didst set them in slippery places: thou castedst them down into destruction.  (19)  How are they brought into desolation, as in a moment! they are utterly consumed with terrors.  (20)  As a dream when one awaketh; so, O Lord, when thou awakest, thou shalt despise their image.  (21)  Thus my heart was grieved, and I was pricked in my reins.  (22)  So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a beast before thee.  (23)  Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast holden me by my right hand.  (24)  Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory.  (25)  Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee.  (26)  My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.  (27)  For, lo, they that are far from thee shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee.  (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.
