A Song of Wisdom

37 Poetic praise, by King David[a]
Don’t follow after the wicked ones or be jealous of their wealth.
Don’t think for a moment they’re better off than you.
They and their short-lived success
will soon shrivel up and quickly fade away
like grass clippings in the hot sun.
Keep trusting in the Lord and do what is right in his eyes.
Fix your heart on the promises of God and you will be secure,
feasting on his faithfulness.
