What does Psalm 37:27 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Psalms 37:27

Depart from evil, and do good
Depart from evildoers, and their evil ways; join not with them, nor fret and be envious at them; but do acts of beneficence, and all good works; since righteous men, and their seed, are not forsaken, but blessed of God; (See Gill on Psalms 34:14);

and dwell for evermore;
or "thou shalt dwell for evermore" F26; see ( Psalms 37:3 ) ; that is, in everlasting habitations, in the house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens, ( Luke 16:9 ) ( 2 Corinthians 5:1 ) . The Targum is, "that thou mayest dwell in everlasting life".
