Psalms 37

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

Psalms 37:1 {Of Dauid.} Fret not thy selfe because of the vngodly: neither be thou enuious against the euyll doers. Psalms 37:2 For they shall soone be cut downe like the grasse: and be withered euen as the greene hearbe.

Psalms 37:7 Holde thee still in God, and wayte paciently vpon him: fret not thy selfe at him whose way doth prosper, at the man that doth abhominations. Psalms 37:8 Leaue of from wrath, and let go displeasure: fret not thy selfe, lest thou be moued to do euill. Psalms 37:9 For the malitious doers shalbe rooted out: and they that paciently wayte after God, they shall inherite the lande. Psalms 37:10 [Looke] at them yet a litle whyle, and the vngodly shalbe cleane gone: thou shalt looke after his place, and he shall not be [there] Psalms 37:11 But the meeke spirited shall possesse the earth: and shalbe delighted in the aboundaunce of peace. Psalms 37:12 The vngodly busieth his head [all] against the iust: and gnasheth vpon him with his teeth. Psalms 37:13 The Lorde shall laugh him to scorne: for he seeth that his day is comming. Psalms 37:14 The vngodly haue drawen out the sworde, and haue bended their bowe: to cast downe the poore and needie, and to slay such as be of right conuersation. Psalms 37:15 But their sworde shal go thorow their owne heart: & their bow shalbe broken. Psalms 37:16 A small thing that the righteous hath: is better then great riches of ye vngodly. Psalms 37:17 For the armes of the vngodly shalbe broken: and God vpholdeth the righteous. Psalms 37:18 God knoweth the dayes of them that be perfect: and their inheritaunce shall endure for euer. Psalms 37:19 They shall not be confounded in the perilous tyme: and in the dayes of dearth they shall haue inough. Psalms 37:20 As for the vngodly they shall perishe, and the enemies of God shall consume as the fat of lambes: yea, euen with the smoke they shall vanishe away. Psalms 37:21 The vngodly boroweth and payeth not agayne: but the righteous geueth mercifully and liberally. Psalms 37:22 Suche as be blessed of God shall possesse the lande: and they that be cursed of hym, shalbe rooted out. Psalms 37:23 The pathes of man is directed by God: and his way pleaseth. Psalms 37:24 Though he fall, he shall not be vndone: for God vpholdeth him with his hande. Psalms 37:25 I haue ben a young chylde, and nowe I am olde: and yet sawe I neuer the righteous forsaken, nor his seede begyng bread. Psalms 37:26 The righteous is euer mercifull and lendeth: and his seede is blessed. Psalms 37:27 Flee from euill & do good: and dwell for euer. Psalms 37:28 For God loueth iudgement, he forsaketh not his saintes: they are preserued for euermore, but the seede of the vngodlye shalbe rooted vp. Psalms 37:29 The righteous shal inherite the land: and dwell therin for euer. Psalms 37:30 The mouth of the righteous is exercised in wysdome: and his tongue wyll be talking of iudgement. Psalms 37:31 The lawe of his God is in his heart: therfore his feete shall not slide. Psalms 37:32 The vngodly spyeth the righteous: and seeketh [occasion] to slay hym. Psalms 37:33 God wyll not leaue him in his hande: nor suffer hym to be condemned when he is iudged. Psalms 37:34 Wayte thou on God & kepe his way, and he wyll promote thee, that thou mayest possesse the lande: when the vngodly shalbe cut of, thou shalt see it. Psalms 37:35 I my selfe haue seene the vngodly in great power: and florishing lyke a greene bay tree. Psalms 37:36 And he vanished away, so that he could be no more seene: I sought hym, but he coulde no where be founde. Psalms 37:37 Marke hym that is perfect, and beholde him that is iust: for the ende of suche a man is peace. Psalms 37:38 As for wicked transgressours, they shalbe destroyed [all] together: and the ende of the vngodly shalbe rooted vp at the last. Psalms 37:39 But saluation of the righteous commeth of God: whiche is also their strength in time of trouble. Psalms 37:40 And God wyll ayde them and deliuer them, he wyl deliuer them from the vngodly: and he wyll saue them, because they put their trust in him.
