Psalm 73:6-10

6-10Pretentious with arrogance,

they wear the latest fashions in violence,

Pampered and overfed,

decked out in silk bows of silliness.

They jeer, using words to kill;

they bully their way with words.

They're full of hot air,

loudmouths disturbing the peace.

People actually listen to them—can you believe it?

Like thirsty puppies, they lap up their words.

11-14What's going on here? Is God out to lunch?

Nobody's tending the store.

The wicked get by with everything;

they have it made, piling up riches.

I've been stupid to play by the rules;

what has it gotten me?

A long run of bad luck, that's what—

a slap in the face every time I walk out the door.
