The wicked lie in wait for the righteous, intent on putting them to death;
but the LORD will not leave them in the power of the wicked or let them be condemned when brought to trial.
Hope in the LORD and keep his way. He will exalt you to inherit the land; when the wicked are destroyed, you will see it.
I have seen a wicked and ruthless man flourishing like a luxuriant native tree,
but he soon passed away and was no more; though I looked for him, he could not be found.
