Psalm 73 New International Version (NIV)
A psalm of Asaph.
1 Surely God is good to Israel,
2 But as for me, my feet had almost slipped;
4 They have no struggles;
12 This is what the wicked are like—
13 Surely in vain I have kept my heart pure
15 If I had spoken out like that,
18 Surely you place them on slippery ground;
21 When my heart was grieved
23 Yet I am always with you;
27 Those who are far from you will perish;
Psalm 73 English Standard Version (ESV)
God Is My Strength and Portion Forever
A Psalm of Asaph.
73 Truly God is good to Israel,
4 For they have no pangs until death;
16 But when I thought how to understand this,
18 Truly you set them in slippery places;
23 Nevertheless, I am continually with you;
27 For behold, those who are far from you shall perish;
Psalm 73 The Message (MSG)
An Asaph Psalm
73 1-5 No doubt about it! God is good—
6-10 Pretentious with arrogance,
11-14 What’s going on here? Is God out to lunch?
15-20 If I’d have given in and talked like this,
21-24 When I was beleaguered and bitter,
25-28 You’re all I want in heaven!
