I have seen a wicked and ruthless man flourishing1 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.237
Consider the blameless,3 observe the upright;4 there is a futurea for the man of peace.538
But all sinners6 will be destroyed;7 the futureb of the wicked will be cut off.839
The salvation9 of the righteous comes from the LORD; he is their stronghold in time of trouble.1040
The LORD helps11 them and delivers12 them; he delivers them from the wicked and saves13 them, because they take refuge14 in him.
