PSALM 73
A Psalm of Asaph.
TRULY God is good to Israel, even to such as are of a
clean heart.
2 But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had
well nigh slipped.
3 For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the
prosperity of the wicked.
4 For there are no bands in their death: but their strength is
firm.
5 They are not in trouble as other men; neither are they
plagued like other men.
6 Therefore pride compasseth them about as a chain;
violence covereth them as a garment.
7 Their eyes stand out with fatness: they have more than
heart could wish.
8 They are corrupt, and speak wickedly concerning
oppression: they speak loftily.
9 They set their mouth against the heavens, and their tongue
walketh through the earth.
10 Therefore his people return hither: and waters of a full
cup are wrung out to them.
11 And they say, How doth God know? and is there
knowledge in the most High?
12 Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the
world; they increase in riches.
13 Verily I have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my
hands in innocency.
14 For all the day long have I been plagued, and chastened
every morning.
15 If I say, I will speak thus; behold, I should offend
against the generation of thy children.
16 When I thought to know this, it was too painful for me;
17 Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I
their end.
18 Surely thou didst set them in slippery places: thou
castedst them down into destruction.
19 How are they brought into desolation, as in a moment!
they are utterly consumed with terrors.
20 As a dream when one awaketh; so, O Lord, when thou
awakest, thou shalt despise their image.
21 Thus my heart was grieved, and I was pricked in my
reins.
22 So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a beast before
thee.

This definitely has a correlation to past and present.
 
DEUTERONOMY
CHAPTER 8

5 Thou shalt also consider in thine heart, that, as a man
chasteneth his son, so the LORD thy God chasteneth thee.
6 Therefore thou shalt keep the commandments of the
LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to fear him.
7 For the LORD thy God bringeth thee into a good land, a
land of brooks of water, of fountains and depths that spring
out of valleys and hills;
8 A land of wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig trees, and
pomegranates; a land of oil olive, and honey;
9 A land wherein thou shalt eat bread without scarceness,
thou shalt not lack any thing in it; a land whose stones are
iron, and out of whose hills thou mayest dig brass.
10 When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless
the LORD thy God for the good land which he hath given
thee.
11 Beware that thou forget not the LORD thy God, in not
keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his
statutes, which I command thee this day:
12 Lest when thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built
goodly houses, and dwelt therein;
13 And when thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy
silver and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is
multiplied;
14 Then thine heart be lifted up, and thou forget the LORD
thy God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt,
from the house of bondage;
15 Who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness,
wherein were fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought,
where there was no water; who brought thee forth water out
of the rock of flint;
16 Who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy
fathers knew not, that he might humble thee, and that he
might prove thee, to do thee good at thy latter end;
17 And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of
mine hand hath gotten me this wealth.
18 But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he
that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish
his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this
day.
19 And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the LORD thy
God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and
worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall
surely perish.
20 As the nations which the LORD destroyeth before your
face, so shall ye perish; because ye would not be obedient
unto the voice of the LORD your God.
 
The entire Bible has an overwhelming black presence and was written largely, by African people... Nothing new here.
