Psalm 73:1

Can anyone help me with the Hebrew here?:

Psalms 73:1  <<A Psalm of Asaph.>> Truly God is good to Israel, even to such
as are of a clean heart. {of: or, for} {Truly: or, Yet} {of
: Heb. clean of

My dillemma is this:

In the KJV, it sounds as if "such as are of a clean heart" are being equated
with "Israel." Ie, it seems like clause B identifies clause A.

How does the Hebrew read? Is it more like:

"Yet God is good to Israelites that are of a clean heart."


"Yet God is good to Israel and all that are of a clean heart."

Or something else?
