37 Of David.a
do not be envious of doers of wickedness.
and like green vegetation they will wither.
Abide in the land and feed on faithfulness.b
and he will give to you the requests of your heart.
5 ⌊Commit to⌋c Yahweh your way;
Trust also on him and he will act.
and your justice like the noonday.
Do not fret about one who succeeds in his way,
about a man making plots.
Do not fret; it only brings evil.
but those who wait for Yahweh—
they will possess the land.
10 Andd yet a little while and the wicked will not be,
and you will look carefully upon his place, but he will not be.
and they will take pleasure in an abundance of peace.
and gnashes at him with his teeth.
for he sees that his day is coming.
to throw down the poor and the needy,
to kill those upright in their way.
and their bows shall be broken.
than the wealth of many wicked.
but Yahweh supports the righteous.
and their inheritance will be forever.
19 They will not be put to shame in distressing times,e
and in the days of famine they will be satisfied.
and the enemies of Yahweh will be like the splendor of the pastures.
They vanish; in smoke they vanish.
but the righteous is gracious and gives.
but those cursed by him shall be cut off.
and he takes pleasure in his way.
for Yahweh supports him with his hand.
yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken
or his children ⌊begging for⌋f bread.
and his children are a blessing.
and so abide forever.
and will not forsake his faithful ones.
They are protected forever.
But the children of the wicked will be cut off.
and abide in it forever.
and his tongue speaks justice.
His steps will not slip.
and seeks to kill him.
and he will not let him be condemned when he is judged.
and he will exalt you to possess the land.
When the wicked are cut off, you will see it.
and spreading himself out
like a luxuriant native tree.
36 Then he passed ong and behold, he was not.
And I sought him, but he could not be found.
for there is a future for a man of peace.
The future of the wicked shall be cut off.
39 Andh the salvation of the righteous is from Yahweh,
their refuge in the time of trouble.
He rescues them from the wicked and saves them,
because they take refuge in him.
