[A Psalm (sacred song about or to God)] of David [Beloved].
1Be troubled (be grieved; be displeased) not yourself because of evildoers, neither be youi envious against the workers of iniquity.
2For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.
3Trust in the Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate], and do good; [so] shall youi dwell in the land, and truly youi shall be fed.
4Delight yourself also in the Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate]; and he shall give youi the desires of youi heart.
5Commit youri way unto the Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate]; trust also in him; and he shall bring [it] to pass.
6And he shall bring forth youri righteousness as the light, and youri judgment as the noonday.
7Rest in the Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate], and wait patiently for him: be troubled (be grieved; be displeased) not yourself because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who brings wicked devices to pass.
8Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: be troubled (be grieved; be displeased) not yourself in any wise to do evil.
9For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate], they shall inherit the earth.
10For yet a little while, and the wicked [shall] not [be]: yea, youi shall diligently consider his place, and it [shall] not [be].
11But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
12The wicked plots against the just, and gnashes upon him with his teeth.
13The Lord-Adonai (The Father) [Greatest Above All Things] shall laugh at him: for he sees that his day is coming.
14The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, [and] to slay such as be of upright Conversation (behavior; way of life; community).
15Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.
16A 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-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate] upholds the righteous.
18The Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate] 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-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate] [shall be] as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.
21The wicked borrows, and pays not again: but the righteous shows mercy, and gives.
22For [such as be] Blessed (Favored by God; happy; prosperous) of him shall inherit the earth; and [they that be] cursed of him shall be cut off.
23The steps of a [good] man are ordered by the Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate]: and he delights in his way.
24Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate] upholds [him with] his hand.
25I have been young, and [now] am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
26 [He is] ever merciful, and lends; and his seed [is] Blessed (Favored by God; happy; prosperous).
27Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell forevermore.
28For the Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate] loves judgment, and forsakes not his saints; they are preserved forever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.
29The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein forever.
30The mouth of the righteous speaks wisdom, and his tongue talks of judgment.
31The law of his God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] [is] in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.
32The wicked watches the righteous, and seeks to slay him.
33The Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate] will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged.
34Wait on the Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate], and keep his way, and he shall exalt youi to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, youi shall see [it].
35I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.
36Yet he passed away, and, lo, he [was] not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.
37Mark the perfect [man], and behold the upright: for the end of [that] man [is] peace.
38But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off.
39But the salvation of the righteous [is] of the Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate]: [he is] their strength in the time of trouble.
40And the Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate] shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.
