The days of the blameless are known to the LORD,1 and their inheritance will endure forever.219
In times of disaster they will not wither; in days of famine they will enjoy plenty.
But the wicked will perish:3 The LORD's enemies will be like the beauty of the fields, they will vanish--vanish like smoke.421
The wicked borrow and do not repay, but the righteous give generously;522
those the LORD blesses will inherit the land, but those he curses6 will be cut off.723
If the LORD delights8 in a man's way, he makes his steps firm;924
though he stumble, he will not fall,10 for the LORD upholds11 him with his hand.
I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken12 or their children begging13 bread.
They are always generous and lend freely;14 their children will be blessed.1527
Turn from evil and do good;16 then you will dwell in the land forever.1728
For the LORD loves the just and will not forsake his faithful ones.18 They will be protected forever, but the offspring of the wicked will be cut off;19
