Psalm 73-84New 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;
A maskil[d] of Asaph.
1 O God, why have you rejected us forever?
4 Your foes roared in the place where you met with us;
9 We are given no signs from God;
12 But God is my King from long ago;
13 It was you who split open the sea by your power;
18 Remember how the enemy has mocked you, Lord,

1 My people, hear my teaching;
9 The men of Ephraim, though armed with bows,
17 But they continued to sin against him,
