They are always generous and lend freely;1 their children will be blessed.227
Turn from evil and do good;3 then you will dwell in the land forever.428
For the LORD loves the just and will not forsake his faithful ones.5 They will be protected forever, but the offspring of the wicked will be cut off;629
the righteous will inherit the land7 and dwell in it forever.830
The mouth of the righteous man utters wisdom,9 and his tongue speaks what is just.
The law of his God is in his heart;10 his feet do not slip.1132
The wicked lie in wait12 for the righteous,13 seeking their very lives;
but the LORD will not leave them in their power or let them be condemned14 when brought to trial.1534
Wait for the LORD16 and keep his way.17 He will exalt you to inherit the land; when the wicked are cut off,18 you will see19 it.
I have seen a wicked and ruthless man flourishing20 like a green tree in its native soil,
but he soon passed away and was no more; though I looked for him, he could not be found.21
