Psalms 37

David persuadeth to patience and confidence in God, by the different estate of the godly and the wicked.

Psalms 37:1 {A [Psalme] of Dauid.} Fret not thy selfe because of euill doers, neither bee thou enuious against the workers of iniquitie. Psalms 37:2 For they shall soone be cut downe like the grasse; and wither as the greene herbe. Psalms 37:3 Trust in the LORD, and do good, [so] shalt thou dwell in the land, and verely thou shalt be fed. Psalms 37:4 Delight thy selfe also in the LORD; and he shall giue thee the desires of thine heart. Psalms 37:5 Commit thy way vnto the LORD: trust also in him, and he shall bring [it] to passe. Psalms 37:6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousnes as the light, and thy iudgement as the noone day. Psalms 37:7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thy selfe because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked deuices to passe. Psalms 37:8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thy selfe in any wise to doe euill. Psalms 37:9 For euil doers shall be cut off: but those that waite vpon the LORD, they shall inherite the earth. Psalms 37:10 For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not [bee]: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not [be]. Psalms 37:11 But the meeke shall inherite the earth: and shall delight themselues in the abundance of peace. Psalms 37:12 The wicked plotteth against the iust, and gnasheth vpon him with his teeth. Psalms 37:13 The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is comming. Psalms 37:14 The wicked haue drawen out the sword, and haue bent their bow to cast downe the poore and needy, [and] to slay such as be of vpright conuersation. Psalms 37:15 Their sword shall enter into their owne heart, and their bowes shall be broken. Psalms 37:16 A little that a righteous man [hath, is] better then the riches of many wicked. Psalms 37:17 For the armes of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD vpholdeth the righteous. Psalms 37:18 The LORD knoweth the dayes of the vpright: and their inheritance shall be for euer. Psalms 37:19 They shall not be ashamed in the euill time: and in the dayes of famine they shalbe satisfied. Psalms 37:20 But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the LORD [shall be] as the fat of lambes: they shall consume: into smoke shall they consume away. Psalms 37:21 The wicked borroweth, and payeth not againe: but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giueth. Psalms 37:22 For such as be blessed of him, shall inherite the earth: and they that be cursed of him, shalbe cut off. Psalms 37:23 The steps of a [good] man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way. Psalms 37:24 Though hee fall, he shall not be vtterly cast downe: for the LORD vpholdeth [him] with his hand. Psalms 37:25 I haue bene yong, and [now] am old; yet haue I not seene the righteous forsaken, nor his seede begging bread. Psalms 37:26 He is euer mercifull, and lendeth: and his seede is blessed. Psalms 37:27 Depart from euill, and doe good; and dwell for euermore. Psalms 37:28 For the LORD loueth iudgement, and forsaketh not his Saints, they are preserued for euer: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off. Psalms 37:29 The righteous shall inherite the land, and dwell therein for euer. Psalms 37:30 The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisedome; and his tongue talketh of iudgement. Psalms 37:31 The Law of his God [is] in his heart: none of his steps shall slide. Psalms 37:32 The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him. Psalms 37:33 The LORD will not leaue him in his hand, nor condemne him when he is iudged. Psalms 37:34 Wait on the LORD, and keepe his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see [it]. Psalms 37:35 I haue seene the wicked in great power: and spreading himselfe like a greene bay tree. Psalms 37:36 Yet he passed away, and loe he was not: yea, I sought him, but hee could not be found. Psalms 37:37 Marke the perfect man, and behold the vpright: for the end of [that] man [is] peace. Psalms 37:38 But the transgressours shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shalbe cut off. Psalms 37:39 But the saluation of the righteous [is] of the LORD: he [is] their strength in the time of trouble. Psalms 37:40 And the LORD shall helpe them and deliuer them: he shall deliuer them from the wicked, and saue them because they trust in him.
