Wait for the LORD 3 and keep his way.4 He will exalt you to inherit the land; when the wicked are cut off,5 you will see6 it.
I have seen a wicked and ruthless man flourishing7 like a green tree in its native soil,

Consider the blameless,9 observe the upright;10 there is a futurea for the man of peace.1138
But all sinners12 will be destroyed;13 the futureb of the wicked will be cut off.1439
The salvation15 of the righteous comes from the LORD; he is their stronghold in time of trouble.1640
The LORD helps17 them and delivers18 them; he delivers them from the wicked and saves19 them, because they take refuge20 in him.
