Do not fret because of those who are evil

or be enviousv of those who do wrong;w

for like the grass they will soon wither,x

like green plants they will soon die away.y

Trust in the Lord and do good;

dwell in the landz and enjoy safe pasture.a

Take delightb in the Lord,

and he will give you the desires of your heart.c

Commit your way to the Lord;

trust in himd and he will do this:

He will make your righteous rewarde shine like the dawn,f

your vindication like the noonday sun.

Be stillg before the Lord

and wait patientlyh for him;

do not freti when people succeed in their ways,j

when they carry out their wicked schemes.k

Refrain from angerl and turn from wrath;

do not fretm—it leads only to evil.

For those who are evil will be destroyed,n

but those who hopeo in the Lord will inherit the land.p

10 A little while, and the wicked will be no more;q

though you look for them, they will not be found.

11 But the meek will inherit the landr

and enjoy peace and prosperity.s
