The wicked lies in wait for the righteous and seeks to kill him;
the Lord will not leave him in his handa or allow him to be condemned when he is judged.
Wait for the Lord and keep His way, and He will exalt you to inherit the land. You will watch when the wicked are destroyed.
I have seen a wicked, violent man well-rootedb like a flourishing native tree. c36
Then I passed by andd noticed he was gone; I searched for him, but he could not be found.
Watch the blameless and observe the upright, for the man of peace will have a future.e38
But transgressors will all be eliminated; the futuref of the wicked will be destroyed.
The salvation of the righteous is from the Lord, their refuge in a time of distress.
The Lord helps and delivers them; He will deliver them from the wicked and will save them because they take refuge in Him.
