Psalms 37

  1 H1732 A Psalm of David H2734 . Fret [H8691]   H7489 not thyself because of evildoers [H8688]   H7065 , neither be thou envious [H8762]   H6213 against the workers [H8802]   H5766 of iniquity.
  2 H4120 For they shall soon H5243 be cut down [H8799]   H2682 like the grass H5034 , and wither [H8799]   H3418 as the green H1877 herb.
  3 H982 Trust [H8798]   H3068 in the LORD H6213 , and do [H8798]   H2896 good H7931 ; so shalt thou dwell [H8798]   H776 in the land H530 , and verily H7462 thou shalt be fed [H8798]  .
  4 H6026 Delight [H8690]   H3068 thyself also in the LORD H5414 ; and he shall give [H8799]   H4862 thee the desires H3820 of thine heart.
  5 H1556 Commit [H8798]   H1870 thy way H3068 unto the LORD H982 ; trust [H8798]   H6213 also in him; and he shall bring it to pass [H8799]  .
  6 H3318 And he shall bring forth [H8689]   H6664 thy righteousness H216 as the light H4941 , and thy judgment H6672 as the noonday.
  7 H1826 Rest [H8798]   H3068 in the LORD H2342 , and wait patiently [H8708]   H2734 for him: fret [H8691]   H6743 not thyself because of him who prospereth [H8688]   H1870 in his way H376 , because of the man H6213 who bringeth H4209 wicked devices H6213 to pass [H8802]  .
  8 H7503 Cease [H8685]   H639 from anger H5800 , and forsake [H8798]   H2534 wrath H2734 : fret [H8691]   H389 not thyself in any wise H7489 to do evil [H8687]  .
  9 H7489 For evildoers [H8688]   H3772 shall be cut off [H8735]   H6960 : but those that wait [H8802]   H3068 upon the LORD H3423 , they shall inherit [H8799]   H776 the earth.
  10 H4592 For yet a little while H7563 , and the wicked H995 shall not be : yea, thou shalt diligently consider [H8712]   H4725 his place, and it shall not be .
  11 H6035 But the meek H3423 shall inherit [H8799]   H776 the earth H6026 ; and shall delight [H8694]   H7230 themselves in the abundance H7965 of peace.
  12 H7563 The wicked H2161 plotteth [H8802]   H6662 against the just H2786 , and gnasheth [H8802]   H8127 upon him with his teeth.
  13 H136 The Lord H7832 shall laugh [H8799]   H7200 at him: for he seeth [H8804]   H3117 that his day H935 is coming [H8799]  .
  14 H7563 The wicked H6605 have drawn out [H8804]   H2719 the sword H1869 , and have bent [H8804]   H7198 their bow H5307 , to cast down [H8687]   H6041 the poor H34 and needy H2873 , and to slay [H8800]   H3477 such as be of upright H1870 conversation.
  15 H2719 Their sword H935 shall enter [H8799]   H3820 into their own heart H7198 , and their bows H7665 shall be broken [H8735]  .
  16 H4592 A little H6662 that a righteous man H2896 hath is better H1995 than the riches H7227 of many H7563 wicked.
  17 H2220 For the arms H7563 of the wicked H7665 shall be broken [H8735]   H3068 : but the LORD H5564 upholdeth [H8802]   H6662 the righteous.
  18 H3068 The LORD H3045 knoweth [H8802]   H3117 the days H8549 of the upright H5159 : and their inheritance H5769 shall be for ever.
  19 H954 They shall not be ashamed [H8799]   H7451 in the evil H6256 time H3117 : and in the days H7459 of famine H7646 they shall be satisfied [H8799]  .
  20 H7563 But the wicked H6 shall perish [H8799]   H341 , and the enemies [H8802]   H3068 of the LORD H3368 shall be as the fat H3733 of lambs H3615 : they shall consume [H8804]   H6227 ; into smoke H3615 shall they consume away [H8804]  .
  21 H7563 The wicked H3867 borroweth [H8801]   H7999 , and payeth not again [H8762]   H6662 : but the righteous H2603 sheweth mercy [H8802]   H5414 , and giveth [H8802]  .
  22 H1288 For such as be blessed [H8794]   H3423 of him shall inherit [H8799]   H776 the earth H7043 ; and they that be cursed [H8794]   H3772 of him shall be cut off [H8735]  .
  23 H4703 The steps H1397 of a good man H3559 are ordered [H8797]   H3068 by the LORD H2654 : and he delighteth [H8799]   H1870 in his way.
  24 H5307 Though he fall [H8799]   H2904 , he shall not be utterly cast down [H8714]   H3068 : for the LORD H5564 upholdeth [H8802]   H3027 him with his hand.
  25 H5288 I have been young H2204 , and now am old [H8804]   H7200 ; yet have I not seen [H8804]   H6662 the righteous H5800 forsaken [H8737]   H2233 , nor his seed H1245 begging [H8764]   H3899 bread.
  26 H3117 He is ever H2603 merciful [H8802]   H3867 , and lendeth [H8688]   H2233 ; and his seed H1293 is blessed.
  27 H5493 Depart [H8798]   H7451 from evil H6213 , and do [H8798]   H2896 good H7931 ; and dwell [H8798]   H5769 for evermore.
  28 H3068 For the LORD H157 loveth [H8802]   H4941 judgment H5800 , and forsaketh [H8799]   H2623 not his saints H8104 ; they are preserved [H8738]   H5769 for ever H2233 : but the seed H7563 of the wicked H3772 shall be cut off [H8738]  .
  29 H6662 The righteous H3423 shall inherit [H8799]   H776 the land H7931 , and dwell [H8799]   H5703 therein for ever.
  30 H6310 The mouth H6662 of the righteous H1897 speaketh [H8799]   H2451 wisdom H3956 , and his tongue H1696 talketh [H8762]   H4941 of judgment.
  31 H8451 The law H430 of his God H3820 is in his heart H838 ; none of his steps H4571 shall slide [H8799]  .
  32 H7563 The wicked H6822 watcheth [H8802]   H6662 the righteous H1245 , and seeketh [H8764]   H4191 to slay [H8687]   him.
  33 H3068 The LORD H5800 will not leave [H8799]   H3027 him in his hand H7561 , nor condemn [H8686]   H8199 him when he is judged [H8736]  .
  34 H6960 Wait [H8761]   H3068 on the LORD H8104 , and keep [H8798]   H1870 his way H7311 , and he shall exalt [H8787]   H3423 thee to inherit [H8800]   H776 the land H7563 : when the wicked H3772 are cut off [H8736]   H7200 , thou shalt see [H8799]   it .
  35 H7200 I have seen [H8804]   H7563 the wicked H6184 in great power H6168 , and spreading [H8693]   H7488 himself like a green H249 bay tree.
  36 H5674 Yet he passed away [H8799]   H1245 , and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought [H8762]   H4672 him, but he could not be found [H8738]  .
  37 H8104 Mark [H8798]   H8535 the perfect H7200 man, and behold [H8798]   H3477 the upright H319 : for the end H376 of that man H7965 is peace.
  38 H6586 But the transgressors [H8802]   H8045 shall be destroyed [H8738]   H3162 together H319 : the end H7563 of the wicked H3772 shall be cut off [H8738]  .
  39 H8668 But the salvation H6662 of the righteous H3068 is of the LORD H4581 : he is their strength H6256 in the time H6869 of trouble.
  40 H3068 And the LORD H5826 shall help [H8799]   H6403 them, and deliver [H8762]   H6403 them: he shall deliver [H8762]   H7563 them from the wicked H3467 , and save [H8686]   H2620 them, because they trust [H8804]   in him.
