The senseless man1 does not know, fools do not understand,
that though the wicked spring up like grass and all evildoers flourish, they will be forever destroyed.28
But you, O LORD, are exalted forever.
For surely your enemies3, O LORD, surely your enemies will perish; all evildoers will be scattered.410
You have exalted my horna5 like that of a wild ox;6 fine oils7 have been poured upon me.
My eyes have seen the defeat of my adversaries; my ears have heard the rout of my wicked foes.812
The righteous will flourish9 like a palm tree, they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon;1013
planted in the house of the LORD, they will flourish in the courts of our God.1114
They will still bear fruit12 in old age, they will stay fresh and green,
proclaiming, "The LORD is upright; he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him.13"
