This isn't about petulant children having a fight.
It's about reality.
Reality will continue to exist even when all evil is done away with:
For I became envious of the arrogant
When I would see the peace of the wicked.
4 For they have no pain in their death;
Their bodies are healthy.
5 They are not troubled like other humans,
Nor do they suffer like other men.
6 Therefore, haughtiness is their necklace;
Violence clothes them as a garment.
7 Their prosperity makes their eyes bulge;
They have exceeded the imaginations of the heart.
8 They scoff and say evil things.
They arrogantly threaten oppression.
9 They speak as if they were as high as heaven,
And their tongues swagger about in the earth.
10 So his people turn aside to them,
And they drink from their abundant water.
11 They say: “How does God know?
Does the Most High really have knowledge?”
When I tried to understand it,
It was troubling to me
17 Until I entered the grand sanctuary of God,
And I discerned their future.
18 Surely you place them on slippery ground.
You make them fall to their ruin.
19 How suddenly they are devastated!
How sudden is their finish as they come to a terrible end!
20 Like a dream when one wakes up, O Jehovah,
When you rouse yourself, you will dismiss their image.
21 But my heart was sour,
And deep inside I felt sharp pain.
22 I was unreasoning and lacked understanding;
I was like a senseless beast before you.
23 But now I am continually with you;
You have taken hold of my right hand.
24 You guide me with your advice,
And afterward you will lead me to glory.
