Trust in the Lord and do what is good; dwell in the land and live securely.a4
Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you your heart's desires.
Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him, and He will act,
making your righteousness shine like the dawn, your justice like the noonday.
Be silent before the Lord and wait expectantly for Him; do not be agitated by one who prospers in his way, by the man who carries out evil plans.
Refrain from anger and give up [your] rage; do not be agitated-it can only bring harm.
For evildoers will be destroyed, but those who put their hope in the Lord will inherit the land.b10
A little while, and the wicked will be no more; though you look for him, he will not be there.
But the humble will inherit the landcd and will enjoy abundant prosperity.
The wicked schemes against the righteous and gnashes his teeth at him.
The Lord laughs at hime because He sees that his day is coming.
