Of David

Ps 37:1Do not be incensed because of evildoers; / Do not be envious of wrongdoers.

Ps 37:2For they soon wither like grass / And fade away like green herbage.

Ps 37:3Trust in Jehovah, and do good; / Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.

Ps 37:4Delight yourself in Jehovah, / And He will give you the requests of your heart.

Ps 37:5Commit your way to Jehovah, / And trust in Him; and He will act.

Ps 37:6And He will cause your righteousness to go forth like light, / And your justness like noonday.

Ps 37:7Be still before Jehovah, and wait for Him; / Do not be incensed because of him who enjoys prosperity on his way, / Because of the man who performs his evil schemes.

Ps 37:8Cease from anger and forsake wrath; / Do not be incensed; it leads only to evil.

Ps 37:9For the evildoers will be cut off; / But those who wait on Jehovah, / They will inherit the land.

Ps 37:10And in a little while longer there will be no wicked man; / Indeed, you will look diligently for his place, and he will not be there.

Ps 37:11But the lowly will inherit the land / And delight themselves in the abundance of peace.

Ps 37:12The wicked man makes evil schemes against the righteous man / And gnashes his teeth at him.

Ps 37:13The Lord will laugh at him, / For He sees that his day will come.

Ps 37:14The wicked have drawn out the sword / And bent their bow, / To cast the poor and the needy down, / To slaughter those who are upright in their way.

Ps 37:15Their sword will enter their own heart, / And their bows will be broken.

Ps 37:16Better is the little that the righteous man has / Than the abundance of many wicked.

Ps 37:17For the arms of the wicked will be broken, / But Jehovah upholds the righteous.

Ps 37:18Jehovah knows the days of the perfect, / And their inheritance will be forever.

Ps 37:19They will not be put to shame in a time of evil, / And in the days of famine they will be satisfied.

Ps 37:20But the wicked will perish, / And the enemies of Jehovah will be like the glory of the pastures: / They are consumed; in smoke they are consumed.

Ps 37:21The wicked one borrows but does not repay, / But the righteous one is gracious and gives.

Ps 37:22For those blessed by Him will inherit the land, / But those cursed by Him will be cut off.

Ps 37:23A man’s steps are established by Jehovah, / And He delights in his way.

Ps 37:24If he falls, he is not utterly cast down; / For Jehovah upholds him by the hand.

Ps 37:25I was once a young man; now I am old. / Yet I have not seen the righteous man forsaken, / Nor his seed seeking bread.

Ps 37:26He is always gracious and lends, / And his seed becomes a blessing.

Ps 37:27Turn away from evil and do good, / And abide forever.

Ps 37:28For Jehovah loves justice / And does not abandon His faithful ones; / They are kept forever; / But the seed of the wicked is cut off.

Ps 37:29The righteous will inherit the land, / And they will abide in it forever.

Ps 37:30The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom, / And his tongue speaks justice.

Ps 37:31The law of his God is in his heart; / His steps do not slip.

Ps 37:32The wicked man watches for the righteous man / And seeks to slay him.

Ps 37:33Jehovah does not leave him in his hand, / Nor let him be condemned when he is judged.

Ps 37:34Wait for Jehovah, / And keep His way; / And He will exalt you to inherit the land; / When the wicked are cut off, you will see it.

Ps 37:35I have seen the wicked man terrorizing, / And spreading himself like a luxuriant native tree.

Ps 37:36Then someone passes by, and behold, he is not there; / I search for him, and he is not found.

Ps 37:37Observe the perfect man, and watch the upright man; / For there is a future for the man of peace.

Ps 37:38But the transgressors will be altogether destroyed; / The future of the wicked will be cut off.

Ps 37:39And the salvation of the righteous is from Jehovah; / He is their stronghold in a time of distress.

Ps 37:40And Jehovah helps them and rescues them; / He rescues them from the wicked, / And saves them, for they take refuge in Him.
