Psalm 37

37:1 By David. Do not fret because of evil doers, Be not envious against doers of iniquity, 37:2 For as grass speedily they are cut off, And as the greenness of the tender grass do fade. 37:3 Trust in Jehovah, and do good, Dwell [in] the land, and enjoy faithfulness, 37:4 And delight thyself on Jehovah, And He giveth to thee the petitions of thy heart. 37:5 Roll on Jehovah thy way, And trust upon Him, and He worketh, 37:6 And hath brought out as light thy righteousness, And thy judgment as noon-day.  37:7 Be silent for Jehovah, and stay thyself for Him, Do not fret because of him Who is making prosperous his way, Because of a man doing wicked devices. 37:8 Desist from anger, and forsake fury, Fret not thyself only to do evil. 37:9 For evil doers are cut off, As to those waiting on Jehovah, they possess the land. 37:10 And yet a little, and the wicked is not, And thou hast considered his place, and it is not. 37:11 And the humble do possess the land, And they have delighted themselves In the abundance of peace. 37:12 The wicked is devising against the righteous, And gnashing against him his teeth. 37:13 The Lord doth laugh at him, For He hath seen that his day cometh. 37:14 A sword have the wicked opened, And they have trodden their bow, To cause to fall the poor and needy, To slaughter the upright of the way. 37:15 Their sword doth enter into their own heart, And their bows are shivered. 37:16 Better [is] the little of the righteous, Than the store of many wicked. 37:17 For the arms of the wicked are shivered, And Jehovah is sustaining the righteous. 37:18 Jehovah knoweth the days of the perfect, And their inheritance is--to the age. 37:19 They are not ashamed in a time of evil, And in days of famine they are satisfied. 37:20 But the wicked perish, and the enemies of Jehovah, As the preciousness of lambs, Have been consumed, In smoke they have been consumed.  37:21 The wicked is borrowing and repayeth not, And the righteous is gracious and giving. 37:22 For His blessed ones do possess the land, And His reviled ones are cut off. 37:23 From Jehovah [are] the steps of a man, They have been prepared, And his way he desireth. 37:24 When he falleth, he is not cast down, For Jehovah is sustaining his hand. 37:25 Young I have been, I have also become old, And I have not seen the righteous forsaken, And his seed seeking bread. 37:26 All the day he is gracious and lending, And his seed [is] for a blessing. 37:27 Turn aside from evil, and do good, and dwell to the age. 37:28 For Jehovah is loving judgment, And He doth not forsake His saintly ones, To the age they have been kept, And the seed of the wicked is cut off. 37:29 The righteous possess the land, And they dwell for ever on it. 37:30 The mouth of the righteous uttereth wisdom, And his tongue speaketh judgment. 37:31 The law of his God [is] his heart, His steps do not slide. 37:32 The wicked is watching for the righteous, And is seeking to put him to death. 37:33 Jehovah doth not leave him in his hand, Nor condemn him in his being judged.  37:34 Look unto Jehovah, and keep His way, And He doth exalt thee to possess the land, In the wicked being cut off--thou seest! 37:35 I have seen the wicked terrible, And spreading as a green native plant, 37:36 And he passeth away, and lo, he is not, And I seek him, and he is not found! 37:37 Observe the perfect, and see the upright, For the latter end of each [is] peace. 37:38 And transgressors were destroyed together, The latter end of the wicked was cut off. 37:39 And the salvation of the righteous [is] from Jehovah, Their strong place in a time of adversity. 37:40 And Jehovah doth help them and deliver them, He delivereth them from the wicked, And saveth them, Because they trusted in Him!
