In Vain

Asaph goes on in verse 13 of Psalm 73:

“Surely in vain have I kept my heart pure.
In vain have I washed my hands in innocence.
All day long I have been plagued;
I have been punished every morning.”

Wow, Asaph sounds a lot like Job! 
When I read these verses years ago, anger rose 
up in my heart. Asaph was asking my questions 
and drawing my conclusions. It seemed to me 
that people who loved God and lived a good 
life had more problems compared to the 
arrogant bullies who lived  charmed lives. 
Where is the justice in that?
