019:037:001
Fret not thyself because of evildoers,
neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.


019:037:002
For they shall soon be cut down like the grass,
and wither as the green herb.


019:037:003
Trust in the LORD,
and do good;
so shalt thou dwell in the land,
and verily thou shalt be fed.


019:037:004
Delight thyself also in the LORD:
and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.


019:037:005
Commit thy way unto the LORD;
trust also in him;
and he shall bring it to pass.


019:037:006
And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light,
and thy judgment as the noonday.


019:037:007
Rest in the LORD,
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.


019:037:008
Cease from anger,
and forsake wrath:
fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.


019:037:009
For evildoers shall be cut off:
but those that wait upon the LORD,
they shall inherit the earth.


019:037:010
For yet a little while,
and the wicked shall not be:
yea,
thou shalt diligently consider his place,
and it shall not be.


019:037:011
But the meek shall inherit the earth;
and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.


019:037:012
The wicked plotteth against the just,
and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.


019:037:013
The LORD shall laugh at him:
for he seeth that his day is coming.


019:037:014
The wicked have drawn out the sword,
and have bent their bow,
to cast down the poor and needy,
and to slay such as be of upright conversation.


019:037:015
Their sword shall enter into their own heart,
and their bows shall be broken.


019:037:016
A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.


019:037:017
For the arms of the wicked shall be broken:
but the LORD upholdeth the righteous.


019:037:018
The LORD knoweth the days of the upright:
and their inheritance shall be for ever.


019:037:019
They shall not be ashamed in the evil time:
and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.


019:037:020
But the wicked shall perish,
and the enemies of the LORD shall be as the fat of lambs:
they shall consume;
into smoke shall they consume away.


019:037:021
The wicked borroweth,
and payeth not again:
but the righteous sheweth mercy,
and giveth.


019:037:022
For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth;
and they that be cursed of him shall be cut off.


019:037:023
The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD:
and he delighteth in his way.


019:037:024
Though he fall,
he shall not be utterly cast down:
for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand.


019:037:025
I have been young,
and now am old;
yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken,
nor his seed begging bread.


019:037:026
He is ever merciful,
and lendeth;
and his seed is blessed.


019:037:027
Depart from evil,
and do good;
and dwell for evermore.


019:037:028
For the LORD loveth judgment,
and forsaketh not his saints;
they are preserved for ever:
but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.


019:037:029
The righteous shall inherit the land,
and dwell therein for ever.


019:037:030
The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom,
and his tongue talketh of judgment.


019:037:031
The law of his God is in his heart;
none of his steps shall slide.


019:037:032
The wicked watcheth the righteous,
and seeketh to slay him.


019:037:033
The LORD will not leave him in his hand,
nor condemn him when he is judged.


019:037:034
Wait on the LORD,
and keep his way,
and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land:
when the wicked are cut off,
thou shalt see it.


019:037:035
I have seen the wicked in great power,
and spreading himself like a green bay tree.


019:037:036
Yet he passed away,
and,
lo,
he was not:
yea,
I sought him,
but he could not be found.


019:037:037
Mark the perfect man,
and behold the upright:
for the end of that man is peace.


019:037:038
But the transgressors shall be destroyed together:
the end of the wicked shall be cut off.


019:037:039
But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD:
he is their strength in the time of trouble.


019:037:040
And the LORD shall help them,
and deliver them:
he shall deliver them from the wicked,
and save them,
because they trust in him.
