Do not fret because of evil men or be envious1 of those who do wrong;22
for like the grass they will soon wither,3 like green plants they will soon die away.43
Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land5 and enjoy safe pasture.64
Delight7 yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.85
Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him9 and he will do this:
He will make your righteousness10 shine like the dawn,11 the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.
Be still12 before the LORD and wait patiently13 for him; do not fret14 when men succeed in their ways,15 when they carry out their wicked schemes.168
Refrain from anger17 and turn from wrath; do not fret18--it leads only to evil.
For evil men will be cut off,19 but those who hope20 in the LORD will inherit the land.2110
A little while, and the wicked will be no more;22 though you look for them, they will not be found.
But the meek will inherit the land23 and enjoy great peace.24
