God is near (Ps 73:27-73:28)

“Indeed those who are far from you will perish.

You put an end to those who are false to you.

But for me,

It is good to be near God.

I have made Yahweh God

My refuge.

Thus I may tell of all your works.”

This psalm concludes with the familiar praise of God as a refuge. Those who are far away from God will perish. God will put an end to those who are false to him. However, Asaph the psalmist was glad to be near God. Yahweh had become his refuge. Thus he was able to tell everyone about all his good works.
