Psalm 37

1  Fret not because of evildoers; 
   be not jealous of those who do wrong.
2  For they shall soon wither like grass 
   and like the green herb fade away.
3  Trust in the Lord and be doing good; 
   dwell in the land and be nourished with truth.
4  Let your delight be in the Lord 
   and he will give you your heart’s desire.
5  Commit your way to the Lord and put your trust in him, 
   and he will bring it to pass.
6  He will make your righteousness as clear as the light 
   and your just dealing as the noonday.
7  Be still before the Lord and wait for him; 
   do not fret over those that prosper
      as they follow their evil schemes.
8  Refrain from anger and abandon wrath; 
   do not fret, lest you be moved to do evil.
9  For evildoers shall be cut off, 
   but those who wait upon the Lord shall possess the land.
10  Yet a little while and the wicked shall be no more; 
   you will search for their place and find them gone.
11  But the lowly shall possess the land 
   and shall delight in abundance of peace.
12  The wicked plot against the righteous 
   and gnash at them with their teeth.
13  The Lord shall laugh at the wicked, 
   for he sees that their day is coming.
14  The wicked draw their sword and bend their bow
      to strike down the poor and needy, 
   to slaughter those who walk in truth.
15  Their sword shall go through their own heart 
   and their bows shall be broken.
16  The little that the righteous have 
   is better than great riches of the wicked.
17  For the arms of the wicked shall be broken, 
   but the Lord upholds the righteous.
18  The Lord knows the days of the godly, 
   and their inheritance shall stand for ever.
19  They shall not be put to shame in the perilous time, 
   and in days of famine they shall have enough.
