Chapter 37

1

[A Psalm] of David.
Fret101 not thyself because of evildoers,56 neither be thou envious17 against the workers6 of iniquity.

2

For they shall soon be cut down4 like the grass, and wither4 as the green herb.

3

Trust3 in the LORD, and do3 good; [so] shalt thou dwell3 in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.3

4

Delight100 thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give4 thee the desires of thine heart.

5

Commit3 thy way unto the LORD; trust3 also in him; and he shall bring [it] to pass.4

6

And he shall bring forth52 thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.

7

Rest3 in the LORD, and wait patiently112 for him: fret101 not thyself because of him who prospereth56 in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.6

8

Cease54 from anger, and forsake3 wrath: fret101 not thyself in any wise to do evil.53

9

For evildoers56 shall be cut off:11 but those that wait6 upon the LORD, they shall inherit4 the earth.

10

For yet a little while, and the wicked [shall] not [be]: yea, thou shalt diligently consider110 his place, and it [shall] not [be].

11

But the meek shall inherit4 the earth; and shall delight98 themselves in the abundance of peace.

12

The wicked plotteth6 against the just, and gnasheth6 upon him with his teeth.

13

The Lord shall laugh4 at him: for he seeth1 that his day is coming.4

14

The wicked have drawn out1 the sword, and have bent1 their bow, to cast down53 the poor and needy, [and] to slay2 such as be of upright conversation.

15

Their sword shall enter4 into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.11

16

A little that a righteous man hath [is] better than the riches of many wicked.

17

For the arms of the wicked shall be broken:11 but the LORD upholdeth6 the righteous.

18

The LORD knoweth6 the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever.

19

They shall not be ashamed4 in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.4

20

But the wicked shall perish,4 and the enemies6 of the LORD [shall be] as the fat of lambs: they shall consume;1 into smoke shall they consume away.1

21

The wicked borroweth,5 and payeth17 not again: but the righteous sheweth mercy,6 and giveth.6

22

For [such as be] blessed30 of him shall inherit4 the earth; and [they that be] cursed30 of him shall be cut off.11

23

The steps of a [good] man are ordered49 by the LORD: and he delighteth4 in his way.

24

Though he fall,4 he shall not be utterly cast down:93 for the LORD upholdeth6 [him with] his hand.

25

I have been young, and [now] am old;1 yet have I not seen1 the righteous forsaken,12 nor his seed begging18 bread.

26

[He is] ever 3117 merciful,6 and lendeth;56 and his seed [is] blessed.

27

Depart3 from evil, and do3 good; and dwell3 for evermore.

28

For the LORD loveth6 judgment, and forsaketh4 not his saints; they are preserved8 for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.8

29

The righteous shall inherit4 the land, and dwell4 therein for ever.

30

The mouth of the righteous speaketh4 wisdom, and his tongue talketh17 of judgment.

31

The law of his God [is] in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.4

32

The wicked watcheth6 the righteous, and seeketh18 to slay53 him.

33

The LORD will not leave4 him in his hand, nor condemn55 him when he is judged.9

34

Wait16 on the LORD, and keep3 his way, and he shall exalt34 thee to inherit2 the land: when the wicked are cut off,9 thou shalt see4 [it].

35

I have seen1 the wicked in great power, and spreading102 himself like a green bay tree.

36

Yet he passed away,4 and, lo, he [was] not: yea, I sought17 him, but he could not be found.8

37

Mark3 the perfect [man], and behold3 the upright: for the end of [that] man [is] peace.

38

But the transgressors6 shall be destroyed8 together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off.8

39

But the salvation of the righteous [is] of the LORD: [he is] their strength in the time of trouble.

40

And the LORD shall help4 them, and deliver17 them: he shall deliver17 them from the wicked, and save55 them, because they trust1 in him.
