Psalm 73:15-20

15-20If 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.

21-24When I was beleaguered and bitter,

totally consumed by envy,

I was totally ignorant, a dumb ox

in your very presence.

I'm still in your presence,

but you've taken my hand.

You wisely and tenderly lead me,

and then you bless me.
