PS 36:1  A psalm for David himself. Be not emulous of evildoers; nor envy them that work iniquity.

PS 36:2  For they shall shortly wither away as grass, and as the green herbs shall quickly fall.

PS 36:3  Trust in the Lord, and do good, and dwell in the land, and thou shalt be fed with its riches.

PS 36:4  Delight in the Lord, and he will give thee the requests of thy heart.

PS 36:5  Commit thy way to the Lord, and trust in him, and he will do it.

PS 36:6  And he will bring forth thy justice as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.

PS 36:7  Be subject to the Lord and pray to him Envy not the man who prospereth in his way; the man who doth unjust things.

PS 36:8  Cease from anger, and leave rage; have no emulation to do evil.

PS 36:9  For the evildoers shall be cut off : but they that wait upon the Lord shall inherit the land.

PS 36:10  For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be : and thou shalt seek his place, and shalt not find it.

PS 36:11  But the meek shall inherit the land, and shall delight in abundance of peace.

PS 36:12  The sinner shall watch the just man : and shall gnash upon him with his teeth.

PS 36:13  But the Lord shall laugh at him : for he foreseeth that his day shall come.

PS 36:14  The wicked have drawn out the sword : they have bent their bow. To cast down the poor and needy, to kill the upright of heart.

PS 36:15  Let their sword enter into their own hearts, and let their bow be broken.

PS 36:16  Better is a little to the just, than the great riches of the wicked.

PS 36:17  For the arms of the wicked shall be broken in pieces; but the Lord strengtheneth the just.

PS 36:18  The Lord knoweth the days of undefiled; and their inheritance shall be for ever.

PS 36:19  They shall not be confounded in the evil time; and in the days of famine they shall be filled :

PS 36:20  because the wicked shall perish. And the enemies of the Lord, presently after they shall be honoured and exalted, shall come to nothing and vanish like smoke.

PS 36:21  The sinner shall borrow, and not pay again; but the just sheweth mercy and shall give.

PS 36:22  For such as bless him shall inherit the land : but such as curse him shall perish.

PS 36:23  With the Lord shall the steps of a man be directed, and he shall like well his way.

PS 36:24  When he shall fall he shall not be bruised, for the Lord putteth his hand under him.

PS 36:25  I have been young, and now am old; and I have not seen the just forsaken, nor his seed seeking bread.

PS 36:26  He sheweth mercy, and lendeth all the day long; and his seed shall be in blessing.

PS 36:27  Decline from evil and do good, and dwell for ever and ever.

PS 36:28  For the Lord loveth judgment, and will not forsake his saints : they shall be preserved for ever. The unjust shall be punished, and the seed of the wicked shall perish.

PS 36:29  But the just shall inherit the land, and shall dwell therein for evermore.

PS 36:30  The mouth of the just shall meditate wisdom : and his tongue shall speak judgment.

PS 36:31  The law of his God is in his heart, and his steps shall not be supplanted.

PS 36:32  The wicked watcheth the just man, and seeketh to put him to death,

PS 36:33  But the Lord will not leave in his hands; nor condemn him when he shall be judged.

PS 36:34  Expect the Lord and keep his way : and he will exalt thee to inherit the land : when the sinners shall perish thou shalt see.

PS 36:35  I have seen the wicked highly exalted, and lifted up like the cedars of Libanus.

PS 36:36  And I passed by, and lo, he was not : and I sought him and his place was not found.

PS 36:37  Keep innocence, and behold justice : for there are remnants for the peaceable man.

PS 36:38  But the unjust shall be destroyed together : the remnants of the wicked shall perish.

PS 36:39  But the salvation of the just is from the Lord, and he is their protector in the time of trouble.

PS 36:40  And the Lord will help them and deliver them : and he will rescue them from the wicked, and save them, because they have hoped in him.
