Holey

(Psalm 73:1-14)


Surely god is good to israel to those who are pure in heart psalm 73 1
Surely God is good to Israel, to those who are pure in heart. (Psalm 73:1)


But as for me, my feet had almost slipped; I had nearly lost my foothold. For I envied the arrogant when I saw the prosperity of the wicked. (Psalm 73:2-3)


“Asaph’s problem is spiritual bitterness. He wants to know why the world does not reflect the power, goodness, and faithfulness of God. He wants to know why the promises of God are not coming true and why all the wrong people seem to be thriving? He wonders if he has put his feet in the wrong place because he is slipping. He wonders if the faithful/religious life is worth it.” (Rich Lusk)


They have no struggles; know why the world does not reflect the power, goodness, and faithfulness of God. He wants to know why the promises of God are not coming true and why all the wrong people seem to be thriving? He wonders if he has put his feet in the wrong place because he is slipping. He wonders if the faithful/religious life is worth it.” (Rich Lusk)their bodies are healthy and strong. They are free from the burdens common to man; they are not plagued by human ills. Therefore pride is their necklace; they clothe themselves with violence. From their callous hearts comes iniquity; the evil conceits of their minds know no limits.They scoff, they speak with malice;in their arrogance they threaten oppression.


Their mouths lay claim to heaven, know why the world does not reflect the power, goodness, and faithfulness of God. He wants to know why the promises of God are not coming true and why all the wrong people seem to be thriving? He wonders if he has put his feet in the wrong place because he is slipping. He wonders if the faithful/religious life is worth it.” (Rich Lusk)and their tongues take possession of the earth. Therefore their people turn to them and drink up waters in abundance. They say, “How can God know? Does the Most High have knowledge?” This is what the wicked are like – always carefree, they increase in wealth.Surely in vain have I kept my heart pure;in vain have I washed my hands in innocence.All day long I have been plagued; I have been punished every morning.(Psalm 73:4-14)


“Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are a good person is a little like expecting a bull not to attack you because you are a vegetarian.” (Dennis Wholey)


Holy good person

(Psalm 73:15-20)


If I had said, “I will speak thus,” good person I would have betrayed your children. When I tried to understand all this, it was oppressive to me till I entered the sanctuary of God; then I understood their final destiny. Surely you place them on slippery ground; you cast them down to ruin. How suddenly are they destroyed, completely swept away by terrors! As a dream when one awakes, so when you arise, O Lord, you will despise them as fantasies. (Psalm 73:15-20)

“Religion is the opium of the people.”

(Karl Marx)

Wholly psalm 73 21 28
Wholly good person (Psalm 73:21-28)


When my heart was grieved good person and my spirit embittered, I was senseless and ignorant; I was a brute beast before you. Yet I am always with you; you hold me by my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory.


Whom have I in heaven but you? good person And earth has nothing I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. Those who are far from you will perish; you destroy all who are unfaithful to you. But as for me, it is good to be near God. I have made the Sovereign LORD my refuge; I will tell of all your deeds. (Psalm 73:21-28)
