Psalm 73, A Psalm of Asaph, here speaking of the wicked:

4 For there are no pangs in their death,
        But their strength is firm.
5 They are not in trouble as other men,
        Nor are they plagued like other men.
6 Therefore pride serves as their necklace;
        Violence covers them like a garment.
7 Their eyes bulge[a] with abundance;
        They have more than heart could wish.
8 They scoff and speak wickedly concerning oppression;
        They speak loftily.
9 They set their mouth against the heavens,
        And their tongue walks through the earth.

From the New King James Version (NKJV)
