The steps of the godly are directed by the LORD. He delights in every detail of their lives.
Though they stumble, they will not fall, for the LORD holds them by the hand.
Once I was young, and now I am old. Yet I have never seen the godly forsaken, nor seen their children begging for bread.
The godly always give generous loans to others, and their children are a blessing.
Turn from evil and do good, and you will live in the land forever.
For the LORD loves justice, and he will never abandon the godly. He will keep them safe forever, but the children of the wicked will perish.
The godly will inherit the land and will live there forever.
