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 the wicked men, neither be enuious for the euill doers. Psalms 37:2 For they shall soone bee cut downe like grasse, and shall wither as the greene herbe. Psalms 37:3 Trust thou in the Lord & do good: dwell in the land, and thou shalt be fed assuredly. Psalms 37:4 And delite thy selfe in the Lorde, and hee shall giue thee thine hearts desire. Psalms 37:5 Commit thy way vnto the Lord, & trust in him, and he shall bring it to passe. Psalms 37:6 And he shall bring foorth thy righteousnes as the light, & thy iudgement as the noone day. Psalms 37:7 Waite patiently vpon the Lorde and hope in him: fret not thy selfe for him which prospereth in his way: nor for the man that bringeth his enterprises to passe. Psalms 37:8 Cease from anger, and leaue off wrath: fret not thy selfe also to doe euill. Psalms 37:9 For euill doers shalbe cut off, and they that wait vpon the Lord, they shall inherite the land. Psalms 37:10 Therefore yet a litle while, and the wicked shall not appeare, and thou shalt looke after his place, and he shall not be found. Psalms 37:11 But meeke men shal possesse the earth, and shall haue their delite in the multitude of peace. Psalms 37:12 The wicked practiseth against the iust, and gnasheth his teeth against him. Psalms 37:13 But the Lord shall laugh him to scorne: for he seeth, that his day is comming. Psalms 37:14 The wicked haue drawen their sworde, and haue bent their bowe, to cast downe the poore and needie, and to slay such as be of vpright conuersation. Psalms 37:15 But their sword shall enter into their owne heart, and their bowes shalbe broken. Psalms 37:16 A small thing vnto the iust man is better, then great riches to the wicked and mightie. Psalms 37:17 For the armes of the wicked shall be broken: but the Lord vpholdeth the iust men. Psalms 37:18 The Lorde knoweth the dayes of vpright men, and their inheritance shall bee perpetuall. Psalms 37:19 They shall not be confounded in the perilous time, & in the daies of famine they shall haue ynough. Psalms 37:20 But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the Lord shall be consumed as the fatte of lambes: euen with the smoke shall they consume away. Psalms 37:21 The wicked boroweth and payeth not againe. but the righteous is mercifull, and giueth. Psalms 37:22 For such as be blessed of God, shall inherite the lande, and they that be cursed of him, shalbe cut off. Psalms 37:23 The pathes of man are directed by the Lord: for he loueth his way. Psalms 37:24 Though he fall, hee shall not be cast off: for the Lord putteth vnder his hand. Psalms 37:25 I haue beene yong, and am olde: yet I sawe neuer the righteous forsaken, nor his seede begging bread. Psalms 37:26 But hee is euer mercifull and lendeth, and his seede enioyeth the blessing. Psalms 37:27 Flee from euill and doe good, and dwell for euer. Psalms 37:28 For the Lord loueth iudgement, and forsaketh not his Saintes: they shall be preserued for euermore: but the seede of the wicked shall be cut off. Psalms 37:29 The righteous men shall inherit the lande, and dwell therein for euer. Psalms 37:30 The mouth of the righteous will speake of wisedome, and his tongue will talke of iudgement. Psalms 37:31 For the Lawe of his God is in his heart, and his steppes shall not slide. Psalms 37:32 The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him. Psalms 37:33 But the Lord wil not leaue him in his hand, nor condemne him, when he is iudged. Psalms 37:34 Waite thou on the Lorde, and keepe his way, and he shall exalt thee, that thou shalt inherite the lande: when the wicked men shall perish, thou shalt see. Psalms 37:35 I haue seene the wicked strong, and spreading himselfe like a greene bay tree. Psalms 37:36 Yet he passed away, and loe, he was gone, and I sought him, but he could not be founde. Psalms 37:37 Marke the vpright man, and beholde the iust: for the end of that man is peace. Psalms 37:38 But the transgressours shall be destroyed together, and the ende of the wicked shall bee cut off. Psalms 37:39 But the saluation of the righteous men shalbe of the Lord: he shalbe their strength in the time of trouble. Psalms 37:40 For the Lord shall helpe them, and deliuer them: he shall deliuer them from the wicked, and shall saue them, because they trust in him.
