I have beenyoung and now I am old, Yet 1I have not seen the righteousforsaken Or 2his adescendantsbeggingbread.
26Allday long 3he is gracious and lends, And 4his bdescendants are a blessing.
275Depart from evil and dogood, cSo you will abide6forever.
For the LORD7lovesdjustice And 8does not forsake His godlyones ; They are 9preservedforever, But the e10descendants of the wicked will be cutoff.
The righteous will 11inherit the land And 12dwell in it forever.
The mouth of the righteous13utterswisdom, And his tongue14speaksjustice.
The 15law of his God is in his heart ; His 16steps do not slip.
The 17wickedspies upon the righteous And 18seeks to kill him.
The LORD will 19not leave him in his hand Or 20let him be condemned when he is judged.
3421Wait for the LORD and keep His way, And He will exalt you to inherit the land ; When the 22wicked are cutoff, you will see it.
I have 23seen a wicked, violentmanSpreading himself like a 24luxuriantftree in its native soil.
Then ghe passedaway, and lo, he 25was nomore ; I sought for him, but he could not be found.
37Mark the h26blamelessman, and behold the 27upright ; For the man of peace will have a i28posterity.
But transgressors will be altogether29destroyed ; The jposterity of the wicked will be 30cutoff.
But the 31salvation of the righteous is from the LORD ; He is their strength32in time of trouble.
4033The LORDhelps them and delivers them; He 34delivers them from the wicked and saves them, Because they 35takerefuge in Him.
