1Do#Ps. 73:3; (Prov. 23:17; 24:19) not fret because of evildoers, Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity. 2For they shall soon be cut down #Job 14:2; Ps. 90:5, 6; 92:7; James 1:11like the grass, And wither as the green herb. 3Trust in the Lord, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. 4#Job 22:26; Ps. 94:19; Is. 58:14Delight yourself also in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires of your #Ps. 21:2; 145:19; (Matt. 7:7, 8)heart. 5#(Ps. 55:22; Prov. 16:3; 1 Pet. 5:7)Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass. 6#Job 11:17; (Is. 58:8, 10)He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, And your justice as the noonday. 7Rest in the Lord, #Ps. 40:1; 62:5; (Lam. 3:26)and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who #(Ps. 73:3–12)prospers in his way, Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass. 8#(Eph. 4:26)Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; #Ps. 73:3Do not fret—it only causes harm. 9For evildoers shall be cut off; But those who wait on the Lord, They shall #Ps. 25:13; Prov. 2:21; (Is. 57:13; 60:21; Matt. 5:5)inherit the earth. 10For #(Heb. 10:37)yet a little while and the wicked shall be no more; Indeed, #Job 7:10; Ps. 37:35, 36you will look carefully for his place, But it shall be no more. 11#(Matt. 5:5)But the meek shall inherit the earth, And shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
