12The wicked plots against the just, #Ps. 35:16And gnashes at him with his teeth. 13#Ps. 2:4; 59:8The Lord laughs at him, For He sees that #1 Sam. 26:10; Job 18:20his day is coming. 14The wicked have drawn the sword And have bent their bow, To cast down the poor and needy, To slay those who are of upright conduct. 15Their sword shall enter their own heart, And their bows shall be broken. 16#Prov. 15:16; 16:8; (1 Tim. 6:6)A little that a righteous man has Is better than the riches of many wicked. 17For the arms of the wicked shall be broken, But the Lord upholds the righteous. 18The Lord knows the days of the upright, And their inheritance shall be forever. 19They shall not be ashamed in the evil time, And in the days of famine they shall be satisfied. 20But the wicked shall perish; And the enemies of the Lord, Like the splendor of the meadows, shall vanish. Into smoke they shall vanish away.
