1: By David. Do not fret because of evil doers, Be not envious against doers of iniquity, 2: For as grass speedily they are cut off, And as the greenness of the tender grass do fade. 3: Trust in Jehovah, and do good, Dwell [in] the land, and enjoy faithfulness, 4: And delight thyself on Jehovah, And He giveth to thee the petitions of thy heart. 5: Roll on Jehovah thy way, And trust upon Him, and He worketh, 6: And hath brought out as light thy righteousness, And thy judgment as noon-day. 7: Be silent for Jehovah, and stay thyself for Him, Do not fret because of him Who is making prosperous his way, Because of a man doing wicked devices. 8: Desist from anger, and forsake fury, Fret not thyself only to do evil. 9: For evil doers are cut off, As to those waiting on Jehovah, they possess the land. 10: And yet a little, and the wicked is not, And thou hast considered his place, and it is not. 11: And the humble do possess the land, And they have delighted themselves In the abundance of peace. 12: The wicked is devising against the righteous, And gnashing against him his teeth. 13: The Lord doth laugh at him, For He hath seen that his day cometh. 14: A sword have the wicked opened, And they have trodden their bow, To cause to fall the poor and needy, To slaughter the upright of the way. 15: Their sword doth enter into their own heart, And their bows are shivered. 16: Better [is] the little of the righteous, Than the store of many wicked. 17: For the arms of the wicked are shivered, And Jehovah is sustaining the righteous. 18: Jehovah knoweth the days of the perfect, And their inheritance is -- to the age. 19: They are not ashamed in a time of evil, And in days of famine they are satisfied. 20: But the wicked perish, and the enemies of Jehovah, As the preciousness of lambs, Have been consumed, In smoke they have been consumed. 21: The wicked is borrowing and repayeth not, And the righteous is gracious and giving. 22: For His blessed ones do possess the land, And His reviled ones are cut off. 23: From Jehovah [are] the steps of a man, They have been prepared, And his way he desireth. 24: When he falleth, he is not cast down, For Jehovah is sustaining his hand. 25: Young I have been, I have also become old, And I have not seen the righteous forsaken, And his seed seeking bread. 26: All the day he is gracious and lending, And his seed [is] for a blessing. 27: Turn aside from evil, and do good, and dwell to the age. 28: For Jehovah is loving judgment, And He doth not forsake His saintly ones, To the age they have been kept, And the seed of the wicked is cut off. 29: The righteous possess the land, And they dwell for ever on it. 30: The mouth of the righteous uttereth wisdom, And his tongue speaketh judgment. 31: The law of his God [is] his heart, His steps do not slide. 32: The wicked is watching for the righteous, And is seeking to put him to death. 33: Jehovah doth not leave him in his hand, Nor condemn him in his being judged. 34: Look unto Jehovah, and keep His way, And He doth exalt thee to possess the land, In the wicked being cut off -- thou seest! 35: I have seen the wicked terrible, And spreading as a green native plant, 36: And he passeth away, and lo, he is not, And I seek him, and he is not found! 37: Observe the perfect, and see the upright, For the latter end of each [is] peace. 38: And transgressors were destroyed together, The latter end of the wicked was cut off. 39: And the salvation of the righteous [is] from Jehovah, Their strong place in a time of adversity. 40: And Jehovah doth help them and deliver them, He delivereth them from the wicked, And saveth them, Because they trusted in Him!
