| ||FRET not thyself because of evil-doers,|
Neither be thou envious against them that work unrighteousness.
| ||For they shall soon be cut down like the grass,|
And wither as the green herb.
| ||Trust in Jehovah, and do good;|
Dwell 1 in the land, and feed 2 on his faithfulness.
| ||Delight 3 thyself also in Jehovah;|
And he will give thee the desires 4 of thy heart.
| ||Commit 5 thy way unto Jehovah;|
Trust also in him, and he will bring it to pass.
| ||And he will make thy righteousness to go forth as the light,|
And thy justice as the noonday.
| ||Rest 6 in Jehovah, 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, it tendeth only to evil-doing.
| ||For evil-doers shall be cut off;|
But those that wait for Jehovah, they shall inherit the 7 land.
| ||For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be:|
Yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and he 8 shall not be.
| ||But the meek shall inherit the land,|
And shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
| ||The wicked plotteth against the just,|
And gnasheth upon him with his teeth.
| ||The Lord will laugh at him;|
For he seeth that his day is coming.
| ||The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow,|
To cast down the poor and needy,
To slay such as are upright in the way.
| ||Their sword shall enter into their own heart,|
And their bows shall be broken.
| ||Better is a little that the righteous hath|
Than the abundance of many wicked.
| ||For the arms of the wicked shall be broken;|
But Jehovah upholdeth the righteous.
| ||Jehovah knoweth the days of the perfect;|
And their inheritance shall be for ever.
| ||They shall not be put to shame in the time of evil;|
And in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
| ||But the wicked shall perish,|
And the enemies of Jehovah shall be as the 9 fat of lambs:
They shall consume; in 10 smoke shall they consume away.
| ||The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again;|
But the righteous dealeth graciously, and giveth.
| ||For such as are blessed of him shall inherit the land;|
And they that are cursed of him shall be cut off.
| ||A mans goings are established of Jehovah;|
And he delighteth in his way
| ||Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down;|
For Jehovah upholdeth 11 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.
| ||All the day long he dealeth graciously, and lendeth;|
And his seed is blessed.
| ||Depart from evil, and do good;|
And dwell for evermore.
| ||For Jehovah loveth justice,|
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 ever.
| ||The mouth of the righteous talketh of wisdom,|
And his tongue speaketh justice.
| ||The law of his God is in his heart;|
None of his steps shall slide.
| ||The wicked watcheth the righteous,|
And seeketh to slay him.
| ||Jehovah will not leave him in his hand,|
Nor condemn him when he is judged.
| ||Wait for Jehovah, and keep his way,|
And he will 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 tree in its native soil.
| ||But 12 one passed by, and, lo, he was not:|
Yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.
| ||Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright;|
For there is a happy end to the man of peace.
| ||As for transgressors, they shall be destroyed together:|
The end of the wicked shall be cut off.
| ||But the salvation of the righteous is of Jehovah:|
He is their stronghold in the time of trouble.
| ||And Jehovah helpeth them, and rescueth them:|
He rescueth them from the wicked, and saveth them,
Because they have taken refuge in him.
