Psalm 37

don’t burn with anger over evil doers nor be jealous of the wrongs they do for like grass they are quickly cut off and like grass they fade away trust god and do good live in the land and remain loyal take delight in god and you will receive your heart’s desire commit your way to god and trust in god to do it and bring forth your righteousness like the light you rectitude like the noonday sun be still before god and wait longingly don’t burn with anger over those who prosper doing evil schemes drop your anger turn from rage don’t burn it will surely lead to doing evil for those who do evil will be cut off but those who wait for god will inherit the land yet a little while and there will be no more wicked you will diligently search out his place but it won’t be there but the dependent poor will inherit the land and take delight in abundant prosperity the wicked one schemes against the righteous one and gnashes his teeth at him god laughs at him seeing that his day will come the wicked one draws his sword and bends his bow to fell the poor independent and slay those who follow the way but their swords will enter their own hearts and their bows be broken and of no use the little of the righteous one is better than the abundance of the wicked one for the strength of the wicked will be broken but the support of the just is god above for god knows the days of those of integrity and their inheritance will be forever they will not be shamed in bad times and in days of famine they will be satisfied but the wicked will perish and those hostile to god like the splendor of the pasture they are finished they are finished in smoke the wicked borrow and don’t return but the righteous are gracious and giving those blessed by god will inherit the land but those cursed will be cut off one’s way of life is established by god and god delights in it if he falls he won’t be hurled down for he is supported by god’s hand from my youth to old age i have not seen the just forsaken nor his offspring seeking food he is always gracious and lending and his offspring are a blessing turn aside from evil and do good and you will abide forever for god loves justice and will not forsake those who are faithful they will be kept safe forever but the children of the wicked will be cut off the righteous shall inherit the land and dwell in it forever the mouth of the righteous one speaks wisdom and his tongue speaks justice the instructions of his god are in his heart his step will not slip the wicked one is looking about for the righteous one seeking to kill him god will not leave him in his power nor condemn him when judged wait for god and keep the way and you will be raised up to inherit the land when the wicked are cut off you will see it i saw an impressive wicked man puffed up like a large native tree but he passed away and suddenly was gone i looked for him but he couldn’t be found but keep watch over one with integrity and see one of the just for his end is peace but the transgressors will be exterminated together the end of the wicked is to be cut off but the deliverance of the righteous is from god god is their refuge in time of trouble the one who helps them and rescues them rescues them from the wicked and delivers them for in god they seek refuge you
