19 The meek will overflow with fresh joy in the Lord Yahweh,
    and the poor will shout their praises to the Holy One of Israel!
20 For the terrible one[a] will be no more,
    the scornful jester will not be found,
    and all the lovers of evil[b] will be cut off.
21 Those who make the innocent appear guilty,
    those who ensnare others with deceitful tactics,
    and those who lie to keep the innocent from getting justice
    will likewise be destroyed.
