Psalms 73:1-28 (ESV)

1 Truly God is good to Israel, to those who  
are pure in heart. 2 But as for me, my feet  
had almost stumbled, my steps had nearly 
slipped. 3 For I was envious of the arrogant 
when I saw  the prosperity of the wicked. 
4 For they have  no pangs until death; their 
 are fat and  sleek. 5 They are not in trouble 
so others are;  they are not stricken like the
rest of mankind. 6 Therefore pride is their 
necklace; violence  through fatness; their 
hearts overflow with follies. 8 They scoff 
and speak with malice;  loftily they threaten 
oppression. 9 They set  their mouths against 
the heavens, and their  tongue struts through 
the earth. 10 Therefore  his people turn back 
to them, and find no  fault in them. 11 And they 
say, “How can  God know? Is there knowledge in 
the Most  High?” 12 Behold, these are the wicked;  
]always at ease, they increase in riches. 13 All 
in vain have I kept my heart clean  and washed my 
hands in innocence. 14 For all the day long I have 
been stricken and  rebuked every morning. 15 If I 
had said,  “I will speak thus,” I would have betrayed  
the generation of your children. 16 But  when I thought 
how to understand this,  it seemed to me a wearisome 
task, 17  until I went into the sanctuary of God;  then 
I discerned their end. 18 Truly you set them in slippery 
places; you make  them fall to ruin. 19 How they are  
destroyed in a moment, swept away  utterly by terrors! 
20 Like a dream  when one awakes, O Lord, when you  
rouse yourself, you despise them as  phantoms. 
21 When my soul was embittered,  when I was pricked 
in heart, 22 I was  brutish and ignorant; I was 
like a beast  you. Nevertheless, I am continually  
with you; you hold my right hand. 24 You  guide me 
with your counsel, and afterward  you will receive 
me to glory. 25 Whom  have I in heaven but you? And 
there  is nothing on earth that I desire besides  you. 
26 My flesh and my heart may fail,  but God is the 
strength of my heart  and my portion forever. 27 For 
behold,  those who are far from you shall perish;  
you put an end to everyone who is  unfaithful to you. 
28 But for me it  is good to be near God; I have made  
the Lord GOD my refuge, that I may  tell of all your 
works. 

Asaph was jealous of the wicked  almost lost his faith 
over this but  for Lord. Jealously is hard to overcome  
our pride is behind it. Until we see ourselves as broken 
as person we of jealous of we not overcome our jealously. 
We need turn Lord ask for forgiveness after let them go.
