And why? I was grieved at the wicked, to see the ungodly in such prosperity. For they are in no peril of death, but stand fast like a palace. They come in no misfortune like other folk; neither are they plagued like other men. read more.
And this is the cause that they be so puffed up in pride, and overwhelmed with cruelty and unrighteousness. Their eyes swell with fatness, and they do even what they lust. They corrupt others, and speak blasphemies maliciously; proud and presumptuous are their words. They stretch forth their mouth unto the heaven, and their tongue goeth through the world. Therefore fall the people unto them, and there out suck they no small advantage. "Tush," say they, "How should God perceive it? Is there knowledge in the most high?" Lo, these are the ungodly, these prosper in the world, these have riches in possession; and I said, "Then have I cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands in innocency? Wherefore should I be then punished daily, and be chastened every morning?" Yea, I had almost also said even as they do; but lo, then should I have condemned the generation of thy children. Then thought I to understand this; but it was too hard for me, until I went into the Sanctuary of God. Then understood I the end of these men. Namely, how thou hast set them in a slippery places, that thou mayest cast them down headlong and destroy them. O how suddenly do they consume, perish and come to a fearful end!

{A Psalm of David} Fret not thyself because of the ungodly; neither be thou envious against the evil doers.

"The houses of robbers are in wealth and prosperity; and they that maliciously meddle against God, dwell without care: yea, God giveth all things richly with his hand.

A fearful sound is ever in his ears, and when it is peace yet feareth he destruction.

the praise of the ungodly hath been short, and that the joy of the hypocrites continued but the twinkling of an eye?

But though an evil person offend a hundredth times, and have a long life: yet am I sure, that it shall go well with them that fear God, because they have him before their eyes. Again, as for the ungodly, it shall not be well with him, neither shall he prolong his days: but even as a shadow, so shall he be that feareth not God.

I myself have seen the ungodly in great power, and flourishing like a green bay-tree. But when I went by, lo, he was gone; I sought him, but his place could nowhere be found.

Therefore may we say, that the proud are happy, and that they which deal with ungodliness, are set up: for they tempt God and yet escape.'

Why lettest thou me see weariness and labour? Tyranny and violence are before me, power overgoeth right: for the law is torn in pieces, and there can no right judgment go forth. And why? The ungodly is more set by than the righteous: this is the cause that wrong judgment proceedeth.

I have seen myself, when the foolish was deep rooted, that his beauty was suddenly destroyed, that his children were without prosperity or health; that they were slain in the door, and no man to deliver them; that his harvest was eaten up of the hungry; that the weaponed man had spoiled it, and that the thirsty had drunk up his riches.

When he goeth forth to get his living, he thinketh plainly, that the day of darkness is at hand.

whereas he covereth his face with fatness, and maketh his body well liking.

He shall not be rich, neither shall his substance continue, nor increase upon earth.

Though he had plenteousness of everything, yet was he poor, and therefore he is but a wretch on every side.

"Wherefore do wicked men live in health and prosperity, come to their old age, and increase in riches? Their children's children live in their sight, and their generation before their eyes. Their houses are safe from all fear, for the rod of God doth not smite them. read more.
Their bullock gendereth, and that not out of time: their cow calveth, and is not unfruitful. They send forth their children by flocks, and their sons lead the dance. They bear with them tabrets and harps, and have instruments of music at their pleasure. They spend their days in wealthiness: but suddenly, they go down to hell.

For he seeth that wise men also die and perish together, as well as the ignorant and foolish, and leave their riches for others. And yet they think that their houses shall continue forever, and that their dwelling-places shall endure from one generation to another; and call the lands after their own names. Nevertheless, man will not abide in honour, seeing he may be compared unto the beasts that perish; this is the way of them. read more.
This way of theirs is very foolishness, and yet their posterity praise it with their mouth. Selah. They lie in the hell like sheep, death gnaweth upon them, and the righteous shall have domination of them in the morning. Their beauty shall consume in the sepulchre, and hell shall be their dwelling. But God shall deliver my soul from the power of hell, when he receiveth me. Selah.

Yea, even like as a dream when one awaketh, so makest thou their image to vanish out of the city. Thus my heart was grieved, and it went even through my veins. So foolish was I, and ignorant, even as it were a beast before thee.

An unwise man will not know this, and a fool will not understand it - that the ungodly are green as grass, and that all the works of wickedness do flourish, to be destroyed forever.

O LORD, thou art more righteous than that I should dispute with thee: Nevertheless, let me talk with thee in things reasonable. How happeneth it, that the way of the ungodly is so prosperous? And that it goeth so well with them, which without any shame offend and live in wickedness? Thou plantest them, they take root, they grow, and bring forth fruit. They boast much of thee, yet doest thou not punish them.

Thine eyes are clean, thou mayest not see evil, thou cannot behold the thing that is wicked. Wherefore then doest thou look upon the ungodly, and holdest thy tongue, when the wicked devoureth the man that is better than himself? Thou makest men as the fish in the sea, and like as the creeping beasts, that have no guide. They take up all with their angle, they catch it in their net, and gather it in their yarn: whereof they rejoice and are glad. read more.
Therefore offer they unto their net, and do sacrifice unto their yarn: because that through it their portions is become so fat, and their meat so plenteous. Wherefore they cast out their net again, and never cease to slay the people.
