Psalms 73:3

For I was envious at the foolish
The atheists, as in (Psalms 14:1) , who deny the creation, as Arama; the wicked, as after explained, as all wicked men are, how wise soever they may be in things natural and civil, yet in religious things, in things of a spiritual nature, they have no understanding; they are proud boasters, glory in themselves, and in their outward attainments, as the word F4 here used signifies; the external happiness of these, their riches, health, and ease, were envied by the psalmist; see (Psalms 37:1) ,

when I saw the prosperity of the wicked,
or "the peace of the wicked" {e}; with an evil eye. This was the occasion of his slip and fall, this was the temptation he was left unto for a while.
