"But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you;
Why do the wicked live on, growing old and increasing in power?
Their homes are safe and free from fear; the rod of God is not on them.
Yet it was he who filled their houses with good things, so I stand aloof from the plans of the wicked.
He may let them rest in a feeling of security, but his eyes are on their ways.
