37 uFret not yourself because of evildoers;
be not venvious of wrongdoers!
and wither ylike the green herb.
3 zTrust in the Lord, and do good;
4 bDelight yourself in the Lord,
and he will cgive you the desires of your heart.
5 dCommit your way to the Lord;
ztrust in him, and he will act.
6 eHe will bring forth your righteousness as the light,
and your justice as fthe noonday.
7 gBe still before the Lord and wait patiently for him;
8 jRefrain from anger, and forsake wrath!
hFret not yourself; it tends only to evil.
9 kFor the evildoers shall be cut off,
but those who wait for the Lord shall linherit the land.
10 In mjust a little while, the wicked will be no more;
though you look carefully at nhis place, he will not be there.
11 But othe meek shall inherit the land
and delight themselves in pabundant peace.
12 The wicked qplots against the righteous
and rgnashes his teeth at him,
13 but the Lord slaughs at the wicked,
for he sees that his tday is coming.
14 The wicked draw the sword and ubend their bows
to slay those whose vway is upright;
and their wbows shall be broken.
16 xBetter is the little that the righteous has
17 For ythe arms of the wicked shall be broken,
but the Lord zupholds the righteous.
18 The Lord aknows the days of the blameless,
and their bheritage will remain forever;
in cthe days of famine they have abundance.
the enemies of the Lord are like dthe glory of the pastures;
they vanish—like esmoke they vanish away.
but the righteous fis generous and gives;
but those cursed by him hshall be cut off.
24 kthough he fall, he shall not be cast headlong,
for the Lord lupholds his hand.
or his children mbegging for bread.
26 He is ever nlending generously,
27 oTurn away from evil and do good;
so shall you pdwell forever.
28 For the Lord qloves justice;
he will not forsake his rsaints.
but the children of the wicked shall be scut off.
and pdwell upon it forever.
31 tThe law of his God is in his heart;
his usteps do not slip.
32 The wicked vwatches for the righteous
33 The Lord will not wabandon him to his power
or let him xbe condemned when he is brought to trial.
34 yWait for the Lord and keep his way,
you will look on zwhen the wicked are cut off.
35 aI have seen a wicked, ruthless man,
for there is a future for the man of dpeace.
38 But etransgressors shall be altogether destroyed;
the future of the wicked fshall be cut off.
39 gThe salvation of the righteous is from the Lord;
he is their stronghold in hthe time of trouble.
40 The Lord helps them and idelivers them;
jhe delivers them from the wicked and saves them,
because they ktake refuge in him.
