The exultation of the wicked is short, and the joy of the ungodly man but for a moment? Though his height mount up to the heavens, and his head reach unto the clouds, Like his own dung doth he perish for ever; they which have seen him shall say, Where is he? read more.

They are exalted for a little, and are no more; they are laid low; like all other are they gathered, and are cut off as the tops of the ears of corn.

Their inward thought is, that their houses are for ever,their dwelling-places from generation to generation: they call the lands after their own names.

Man that is in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts that perish.

{To the chief Musician: an instruction. Of David; when Doeg the Edomite came and told Saul, and said unto him, David came to the house of Ahimelech.} Why boastest thou thyself in evil, thou mighty man?

Thou hast loved evil rather than good, lying rather than to speak righteousness. Selah. read more.

{A Psalm of David.} Fret not thyself because of evil-doers, and be not envious of them that work unrighteousness;

The tents of desolators are in peace, and they that provoke God are secure; into whose hand +God bringeth.

The sound of terrors is in his ears: in prosperity the destroyer cometh upon him.

The exultation of the wicked is short, and the joy of the ungodly man but for a moment?

Though a sinner do evil a hundred times, and prolong his days, yet I know that it shall be well with them that fear God, because they fear before him; but it shall not be well with the wicked, neither shall he prolong his days as a shadow, because he feareth not before God.

I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading like a green tree in its native soil: but he passed away, and behold, he was not; and I sought him, but he was not found.


Why dost thou cause me to see iniquity, and lookest thou upon grievance? For spoiling and violence are before me; and there is strife, and contention riseth up. Therefore the law is powerless, and justice doth never go forth; for the wicked encompasseth the righteous; therefore judgment goeth forth perverted.

I myself saw the foolish taking root, but suddenly I cursed his habitation. His children are far from safety, and they are crushed in the gate, and there is no deliverer: Whose harvest the hungry eateth up, and taketh even out of the thorns; and the snare gapeth for his substance.

He wandereth abroad for bread, where may it be? He knoweth that the day of darkness is ready at his hand.

For he hath covered his face with his fatness, and gathered fat upon his flanks.

He shall not become rich, neither shall his substance continue, and their possessions shall not extend upon the earth.

In the fulness of his sufficiency he shall be in straits; every hand of the wretched shall come upon him.

Wherefore do the wicked live, grow old, yea, become mighty in power? Their seed is established with them in their sight, and their offspring before their eyes. Their houses are safe from fear, neither is the rod of +God upon them. read more.
Their bull gendereth, and faileth not; their cow calveth, and casteth not her calf. They send forth their little ones like a flock, and their children dance. They shout to the tambour and harp, and rejoice at the sound of the pipe. They spend their days in prosperity, and in a moment go down to Sheol.

For he seeth that wise men die; all alike, the fool and the brutish perish, and they leave their wealth to others. Their inward thought is, that their houses are for ever,their dwelling-places from generation to generation: they call the lands after their own names. Nevertheless, man being in honour abideth not: he is like the beasts that perish. read more.
This their way is their folly, yet they that come after them delight in their sayings. Selah. Like sheep are they laid in Sheol: Death feedeth on them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their comeliness shall be for Sheol to consume, that there be no habitation for them. But God will redeem my soul from the power of Sheol: for he will receive me. Selah.

For I was envious at the arrogant, seeing the prosperity of the wicked. For they have no pangs in their death, and their body is well nourished; They have not the hardships of mankind, neither are they plagued like other men: read more.
Therefore pride encompasseth them as a neck-chain, violence covereth them as a garment; Their eyes stand out from fatness, they exceed the imaginations of their heart: They mock and speak wickedly of oppression, they speak loftily: They set their mouth in the heavens, and their tongue walketh through the earth. Therefore his people turn hither, and waters in fulness are wrung out to them. And they say, How can God know, and is there knowledge in the Most High? Behold, these are the wicked, and they prosper in the world: they heap up riches. Truly have I purified my heart in vain, and washed my hands in innocency: For all the day have I been plagued, and chastened every morning. If I said, I will speak thus, behold, I should be faithless to the generation of thy children. When I thought to be able to know this, it was a grievous task in mine eyes; Until I went into the sanctuaries of God; then understood I their end. Truly thou settest them in slippery places, thou castest them down in ruins. How are they suddenly made desolate! they pass away, consumed with terrors. As a dream, when one awaketh, wilt thou, Lord, on arising despise their image. When my heart was in a ferment, and I was pricked in my reins, Then I was brutish and knew nothing; I was as a beast with thee.

A brutish man knoweth not, neither doth a fool understand it. When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity flourish, it is that they may be destroyed for ever.

Righteous art thou, Jehovah, when I plead with thee; yet will I speak with thee of thy judgments. Wherefore doth the way of the wicked prosper? wherefore are all they at ease that deal very treacherously? Thou hast planted them, they also have taken root: they advance, yea, they bring forth fruit: thou art near in their mouth, but far from their reins.

Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on mischief: wherefore lookest thou upon them that deal treacherously, and keepest silence when the wicked swalloweth up a man more righteous than he? And thou makest men as the fishes of the sea, as the creeping things, that have no ruler over them. He taketh up all of them with the hook, he catcheth them in his net, and gathereth them into his drag; therefore he rejoiceth and is glad: read more.
therefore he sacrificeth unto his net, and burneth incense unto his drag; for by them his portion is become fat, and his meat dainty. Shall he therefore empty his net, and not spare to slay the nations continually?
