New Century Version (NCV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Don't be upset because of evil people. Don't be jealous of those who do wrong, 1 Do not fret because of evil men or be envious of those who do wrong;
2 because like the grass, they will soon dry up. Like green plants, they will soon die away. 2 for like the grass they will soon wither, like green plants they will soon die away.
3 Trust the Lord and do good. Live in the land and feed on truth. 3 Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
4 Enjoy serving the Lord, and he will give you what you want. 4 Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.
5 Depend on the Lord; trust him, and he will take care of you. 5 Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this:
6 Then your goodness will shine like the sun, and your fairness like the noonday sun. 6 He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.
