Temptation to Envy the Wicked

As for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped. For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked. Psalm 78:2,3

Their feet are in a slippery place;
Their riches swift as shadows fly;
Their honours end in deep disgrace;
In mirth they live, in anguish die.
