Psalms 37:2 Meaning and Commentary

Psalms 37:2

For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as
the green herb.
] Which in the morning looks green, pretty, and flourishing, and in the evening is cut down, and then fades away; see ( Psalms 90:5 Psalms 90:6 ) ; and so the wicked prosper and flourish for a while, and then they perish with all their honour, riches, and wealth; so that their happiness is a very short lived one, and therefore need not be envied and fretted at.
