A psalm of Asaph. Surely God is good to Israel, to those who are pure in heart.
They would not be like their ancestors-- a stubborn and rebellious generation, whose hearts were not loyal to God, whose spirits were not faithful to him.
their hearts were not loyal to him, they were not faithful to his covenant.
