Psalm 73:16
When I thought to understand this, it was too painful for me,
When I thought how I might know this, It was too painful for me;
When I considered how to understand this, It was too great an effort for me and too painful
But when I considered how to understand this, it was too great an effort for me and too painful
When I thought to know this, it was too painful for me;
But when I tried to understand these things, it just seemed like hard work
When I tried to understand all this, I found it too hard for me —
It was hard for me to understand all this!
When I thought to be able to know this, it was a grievous task in mine eyes;
Thine is the day, and thine is the night: thou hast made the morning light and the sun.
I tried hard to understand all this, but it was too hard for me.
But when I thought how to understand this, it seemed to me a wearisome task,
But when I thought how to understand this, it seemed to me a wearisome task,
I ·tried [thought how] to understand all this, but it was too ·hard [wearisome] ·for me to see [L in my eyes]
Then thought I to know this, but it was too painful for me,
But when I tried to understand this, it was too difficult for me.
I tried to think this problem through, but it was too difficult for me
When I tried to understand all this, it seemed hopeless
I tried to understand all this. But it was too hard for me to see
When I tried to understand this, it was too difficult for me
I shall meditate that I might understand this; it is very hard for me to see.
When I thought to know this, it was too painful for me;
When I thought to know this, it was too painful for me;
When I thought about how to understand this, it was troubling in my eyes
Yet it is so hard to explain it—this prosperity of those who hate the Lord.
If I’d have given in and talked like this, I would have betrayed your dear children. Still, when I tried to figure it out, all I got was a splitting headache . . . Until I entered the sanctuary of God. Then I saw the whole picture: The slippery road you’ve put them on, with a final crash in a ditch of delusions. In the blink of an eye, disaster! A blind curve in the dark, and—nightmare! We wake up and rub our eyes. . . . Nothing. There’s nothing to them. And there never was.
When I thought to understand this, it was troublesome in my eyes,
But when I tried to understand this, it was too difficult for me.
Though I tried to understand all this, it was too difficult for me,
When I pondered to understand this, It was troublesome in my sight
I tried to understand all this, but it was too hard for me to see
When I tried to make sense of this, it was troubling to me.
I tried to understand it all. But it was more than I could handle.
When I tried to understand all this, it troubled me deeply
When I tried to understand all this, it troubled me deeply
When I thought how to understand this, It was too painful for me—
It was too hard for me when I tried to understand this,
So I tried to understand why the wicked prosper. But what a difficult task it is!
But when I thought how to understand this, it seemed to me a wearisome task,
But when I thought how to understand this, it seemed to me a wearisome task,
But when I thought how to understand this, it seemed to me a wearisome task,
But when I thought how to understand this, it seemed to me a wearisome task,
When I thought to comprehend this, it was amal (difficulty) in my eyes;
But when I thought how to understand this, it seemed to me a wearisome task,
But when I thought how to understand this, it seemed to me a wearisome task,
But when I tried to make sense of this, it was troubling in my eyes—
Trying to solve this mystery on my own exhausted me; I couldn’t bear to look at it any further.
When I tried to understand this, it was too painful for me;
I guessed, that I should know this; (but too much) travail is before me. (I tried to work through all of this; but it was too much for me.)
And I think to know this, Perverseness it [is] in mine eyes,
