Chapter 37

PSA.37:1 A Psalm of David. Do not fret because of evildoers, Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity.
PSA.37:2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, And wither as the green herb.
PSA.37:3 Trust in the LORD, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
PSA.37:4 Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart.
PSA.37:5 Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass.
PSA.37:6 He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, And your justice as the noonday.
PSA.37:7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass.
PSA.37:8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; Do not fret-it only causes harm.
PSA.37:9 For evildoers shall be cut off; But those who wait on the LORD, They shall inherit the earth.
PSA.37:10 For yet a little while and the wicked shall be no more; Indeed, you will look carefully for his place, But it shall be no more.
PSA.37:11 But the meek shall inherit the earth, And shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
PSA.37:12 The wicked plots against the just, And gnashes at him with his teeth.
PSA.37:13 The Lord laughs at him, For He sees that his day is coming.
PSA.37:14 The wicked have drawn the sword And have bent their bow, To cast down the poor and needy, To slay those who are of upright conduct.
PSA.37:15 Their sword shall enter their own heart, And their bows shall be broken.
PSA.37:16 A little that a righteous man has Is better than the riches of many wicked.
PSA.37:17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken, But the LORD upholds the righteous.
PSA.37:18 The LORD knows the days of the upright, And their inheritance shall be forever.
PSA.37:19 They shall not be ashamed in the evil time, And in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
PSA.37:20 But the wicked shall perish; And the enemies of the LORD, Like the splendor of the meadows, shall vanish. Into smoke they shall vanish away.
PSA.37:21 The wicked borrows and does not repay, But the righteous shows mercy and gives.
PSA.37:22 For those blessed by Him shall inherit the earth, But those cursed by Him shall be cut off.
PSA.37:23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD, And He delights in his way.
PSA.37:24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; For the LORD upholds him with His hand.
PSA.37:25 I have been young, and now am old; Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, Nor his descendants begging bread.
PSA.37:26 He is ever merciful, and lends; And his descendants are blessed.
PSA.37:27 Depart from evil, and do good; And dwell forevermore.
PSA.37:28 For the LORD loves justice, And does not forsake His saints; They are preserved forever, But the descendants of the wicked shall be cut off.
PSA.37:29 The righteous shall inherit the land, And dwell in it forever.
PSA.37:30 The mouth of the righteous speaks wisdom, And his tongue talks of justice.
PSA.37:31 The law of his God is in his heart; None of his steps shall slide.
PSA.37:32 The wicked watches the righteous, And seeks to slay him.
PSA.37:33 The LORD will not leave him in his hand, Nor condemn him when he is judged.
PSA.37:34 Wait on the LORD, And keep His way, And He shall exalt you to inherit the land; When the wicked are cut off, you shall see it.
PSA.37:35 I have seen the wicked in great power, And spreading himself like a native green tree.
PSA.37:36 Yet he passed away, and behold, he was no more; Indeed I sought him, but he could not be found.
PSA.37:37 Mark the blameless man, and observe the upright; For the future of that man is peace.
PSA.37:38 But the transgressors shall be destroyed together; The future of the wicked shall be cut off.
PSA.37:39 But the salvation of the righteous is from the LORD; He is their strength in the time of trouble.
PSA.37:40 And the LORD shall help them and deliver them; He shall deliver them from the wicked, And save them, Because they trust in Him.
