are -'

men.

TRULY God is loving un to --- Is | ra-'-el : even unto such as

of a --- clean heart. 2 Nevertheless, my feet were -'- al | most -gone : my treadings --- had well-'-nigh slipt.

3 And why? I was grieved at -- the wick-'ed : I do also see the ungodly in such --- pros

| pe-'-rity.

4 For they are in no pe---ril | of -- death : but are --

and strong 5 They come in no misfortune like --- 0|ther -- folk : neither are they plagued -- like o--ther

6 And this is the cause that they are so : hold---en with pride : and overwhelmed with cru--elty.

7 Their eyes swell with | fat-'-ness : and they do į e---ven what

they lust 8 They corrupt other, and speak of wick :ed -blasphe---my : their talking is į a--gainst | the most High.

9 For they stretch forth their mouth unto -- the hea---ven : and their tongue į go---eth | through --the world.

10 Therefore fall the people -- unto -- them : and thereout suck they no - small | ad---vantage.

11 Tush, say they, how should God -- per-| ceive -- it : is there knowledge in | the most High ?

12 Lo, these are the ungodly, these prosper in genera{tion

for me,

the world, and these have riches : in

posses-sion : and I said, Then have I cleansed my heart in vain, and washed mine hands { in

in nocen--cy.

13 All the day long have I been --- punish-'ed : and chastened -- eve | ry morning.

14 Yea, and I had almost said : e--ven | as -they : but lo, then I should have condemned the

of | thy children. 15 Then thought I to un--der stand -- this : but it { was -- too hard

16 Until I went into the sanctu:a---ry | of God : then understood I Į the

end of

these men ;

17 Namely, how thou dost set them in slip- : pe---ry | pla---ces : and castest them down, { and destroy--est them.

18 Oh, how suddenly : do they | con---sume : perish, and come to a | fear---ful end !

19 Yea, even like as a dream when one --al wa-'-keth : so shalt thou make their image to vanish { out --- of the city.

20 Thus my heart --- was griev---ed : and it went {e---ven through

21 So foolish was 1, 3 and -- ig | no---rant : even as it were { a -- beast be---fore thee.

22 Nevertheless, I am al---way | by -- thee : for thou hast holden {me -

right hand.

23 Thou shalt guide me with thy | coun-sel ; and after that receive

me | with glory. 24 Whom have I in : hea---ven, but

thee, : and there is none upon earth that I desire in com- } pa---ri | son --- of thee.
