Psalm 37

Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious
against the workers of iniquity.

For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the
green herb.

Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land,
and verily thou shalt be fed.

Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the
desires of thine heart.

Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall
bring it to pass.

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

Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself
because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who
bringeth wicked devices to pass.

Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise
to do evil.

For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the
LORD, they shall inherit the earth.

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

But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight
themselves in the abundance of peace.

The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with
his teeth.

The LORD shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is

The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to
cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright

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

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

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

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

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

But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the LORD shall
be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they
consume away.

The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous
sheweth mercy, and giveth.

For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and they
that be cursed of him shall be cut off.

The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he
delighteth in his way.

Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD
upholdeth him with his hand.

I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the
righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.

He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.

Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.

For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they
are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.

The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for

The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue
talketh of judgment.

The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall

The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him.

The LORD will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he
is judged.

Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to
inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.

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

Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but
he could not be found.

Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of
that man is peace.

But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of
the wicked shall be cut off.

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

And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver
them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.
