The wicked23plots against the righteous And 24gnashes at him with his teeth.
The Lord25laughs at him, For He sees26his day is coming.
The wicked have drawn the sword and 27bent their bow To castdown the 28afflicted and the needy, To 29slay those who are upright in conduct.
Their sword will enter their own heart, And their 30bows will be broken.
1631Better is the little of the righteousThan the abundance of manywicked.
For the 32arms of the wicked will be broken, But the LORD33sustains the righteous.
The LORD34knows the days of the dblameless, And their 35inheritance will be forever.

The mouth of the righteous59utterswisdom, And his tongue60speaksjustice.
The 61law of his God is in his heart; His 62steps do not slip.
The 63wickedspies upon the righteous And 64seeks to kill him.

I have 69seen a wicked, violentmanSpreading himself like a 70luxuriantltree in its native soil.
Then mhe passedaway, and lo, he 71was nomore; I sought for him, but he could not be found.

But transgressors will be altogether75destroyed; The pposterity of the wicked will be 76cutoff.
But the 77salvation of the righteous is from the LORD; He is their strength78in time of trouble.
