Psalm 73 has elements of thanksgiving, lament, and even complaint. At one point, the Psalmist is frustrated and angry, and unable to understand why the Lord allows the world to go the way it goes. He is envious of evildoers—the powerful, the rich, and the mighty—those who seem to get what they want when they want it.
The Psalmist questions God’s governance of the world in these verses. He knows that God is good to his people, and that God blesses his people. So how is it that the wicked prosper while the righteous seem to suffer? The Psalmist’s questions culminate in a great moment of turning, and in the end he determines to tell others of what the Lord has done for him.
