New Living Translation
37[A psalm of David.] Don't worry about the wicked or envy those who do wrong.H1732H2734H7489H7065H6213H5766 2For like grass, they soon fade away. Like spring flowers, they soon wither.H4120H5243H2682H5034H3418H1877 3Trust in the LORD and do good. Then you will live safely in the land and prosper.H982H3068H6213H2896H7931H776H530H7462 4Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you your heart's desires.H6026H3068H5414H4862H3820 5Commit everything you do to the LORD. Trust him, and he will help you.H1556H1870H3068H982H6213 6He will make your innocence radiate like the dawn, and the justice of your cause will shine like the noonday sun.H3318H6664H216H4941H6672 7Be still in the presence of the LORD, and wait patiently for him to act. Don't worry about evil people who prosper or fret about their wicked schemes.H1826H3068H2342H2734H6743H1870H376H6213H4209H6213 8Stop being angry! Turn from your rage! Do not lose your temper—it only leads to harm.H7503H639H5800H2534H2734H389H7489 9For the wicked will be destroyed, but those who trust in the LORD will possess the land.H7489H3772H6960H3068H3423H776 10Soon the wicked will disappear. Though you look for them, they will be gone.H4592H7563H995H4725 11The lowly will possess the land and will live in peace and prosperity.H6035H3423H776H6026H7230H7965 12The wicked plot against the godly; they snarl at them in defiance.H7563H2161H6662H2786H8127 13But the Lord just laughs, for he sees their day of judgment coming.H136H7832H7200H3117H935 14The wicked draw their swords and string their bows to kill the poor and the oppressed, to slaughter those who do right.H7563H6605H2719H1869H7198H5307H6041H34H2873H3477H1870 15But their swords will stab their own hearts, and their bows will be broken.H2719H935H3820H7198H7665 16It is better to be godly and have little than to be evil and rich.H4592H6662H2896H1995H7227H7563 17For the strength of the wicked will be shattered, but the LORD takes care of the godly.H2220H7563H7665H3068H5564H6662 18Day by day the LORD takes care of the innocent, and they will receive an inheritance that lasts forever.H3068H3045H3117H8549H5159H5769 19They will not be disgraced in hard times; even in famine they will have more than enough.H954H7451H6256H3117H7459H7646 20But the wicked will die. The LORD's enemies are like flowers in a field—they will disappear like smoke.H7563H6H341H3068H3368H3733H3615H6227H3615 21The wicked borrow and never repay, but the godly are generous givers.H7563H3867H7999H6662H2603H5414 22Those the LORD blesses will possess the land, but those he curses will die.H1288H3423H776H7043H3772 23The LORD directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.H4703H1397H3559H3068H2654H1870 24Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the LORD holds them by the hand.H5307H2904H3068H5564H3027 25Once I was young, and now I am old. Yet I have never seen the godly abandoned or their children begging for bread.H5288H2204H7200H6662H5800H2233H1245H3899 26The godly always give generous loans to others, and their children are a blessing.H3117H2603H3867H2233H1293 27Turn from evil and do good, and you will live in the land forever.H5493H7451H6213H2896H7931H5769 28For the LORD loves justice, and he will never abandon the godly. He will keep them safe forever, but the children of the wicked will die.H3068H157H4941H5800H2623H8104H5769H2233H7563H3772 29The godly will possess the land and will live there forever.H6662H3423H776H7931H5703 30The godly offer good counsel; they teach right from wrong.H6310H6662H1897H2451H3956H1696H4941 31They have made God's law their own, so they will never slip from his path.H8451H430H3820H838H4571 32The wicked wait in ambush for the godly, looking for an excuse to kill them.H7563H6822H6662H1245H4191 33But the LORD will not let the wicked succeed or let the godly be condemned when they are put on trial.H3068H5800H3027H7561H8199 34Put your hope in the LORD. Travel steadily along his path. He will honor you by giving you the land. You will see the wicked destroyed.H6960H3068H8104H1870H7311H3423H776H7563H3772H7200 35I have seen wicked and ruthless people flourishing like a tree in its native soil.H7200H7563H6184H6168H7488H249 36But when I looked again, they were gone! Though I searched for them, I could not find them!H5674H1245H4672 37Look at those who are honest and good, for a wonderful future awaits those who love peace.H8104H8535H7200H3477H319H376H7965 38But the rebellious will be destroyed; they have no future.H6586H8045H3162H319H7563H3772 39The LORD rescues the godly; he is their fortress in times of trouble.H8668H6662H3068H4581H6256H6869 40The LORD helps them, rescuing them from the wicked. He saves them, and they find shelter in him.H3068H5826H6403H6403H7563H3467H2620
