Psalm 37

Do not vie with the wicked :
 or envy those that do wrong;
For they will soon wither like the grass :
 and fade away like the green leaf.
Trust in the Lord and do good :
 and you shall dwell in the land and feed in safe pastures.
Let the Lord be your delight :
 and he will grant you your heart’s desire.
Commit your way to the Lord :
 trust him, and he will act.
He will make your righteousness shine as clear as the light :
 and your innocence as the noonday.
Be still before the Lord, and wait patiently for him :
 do not be vexed when a man prospers,
   when he puts his evil purposes to work.
Let go of anger and abandon wrath :
 let not envy move you to do evil.
For the wicked shall be cut down :
 but those who wait for the Lord shall possess the land.
In a little while the ungodly shall be no more :
 you will look for him in his place, but he will not be found.
But the meek shall possess the land :
 and enjoy the abundance of peace.
The ungodly man plots against the righteous :
 and gnashes at him with his teeth.
But the Lord shall laugh him to scorn :
 for he sees that the day for his overthrow is near.
The ungodly have drawn the sword and strung the bow :
 to strike down the poor and needy,
   to slaughter those that walk in innocence.
Their swords shall pierce their own hearts :
 and their bows shall be broken.
Though the righteous man has but a little :
 it is better than the great wealth of the ungodly.
For the strong arm of the ungodly shall be broken :
 but the Lord upholds the righteous.
