7aRest in the LORD and 1waitbpatiently for Him; 2Do not fret because of him who 3prospers in his way, Because of the man who carries out wickedschemes.
8Cease from anger and 4forsakewrath; Do not fret; it leads only to evildoing.
For 5evildoers will be cutoff, But those who wait for the LORD, they will 6inherit the land.
10Yet7a littlewhile and the wickedman will be nomore; And you will lookcarefully for 8his place and he will not be there.
But 9the humble will inherit the land And will delight themselves in 10abundantprosperity.
The wicked11plots against the righteous And 12gnashes at him with his teeth.
The Lord13laughs at him, For He sees14his day is coming.
The wicked have drawn the sword and 15bent their bow To castdown the 16afflicted and the needy, To 17slay those who are upright in conduct.
Their sword will enter their own heart, And their 18bows will be broken.
1619Better is the little of the righteousThan the abundance of manywicked.
For the 20arms of the wicked will be broken, But the LORD21sustains the righteous.
The LORD22knows the days of the cblameless, And their 23inheritance will be forever.
They will not be ashamed in the time of evil, And 24in the days of famine they will haveabundance.
But the 25wicked will perish; And the enemies of the LORD will be like the dglory of the pastures, They vanish -26like smoke they vanish away.
