29 The godly will possess the land
and will dwell in it permanently.
30 The godly speak wise words
and promote justice.[a]
31 The law of their God controls their thinking;[b]
their[c] feet do not slip.

Footnotes:

  1. Psalm 37:30 tn Heb “The mouth of the godly [one] utters wisdom, and his tongue speaks justice.” The singular form is used in a representative sense; the typical godly individual is in view. The imperfect verbal forms draw attention to the characteristic behavior of the godly.
  2. Psalm 37:31 tn Heb “the law of his God [is] in his heart.” The “heart” is here the seat of one’s thoughts and motives.
  3. Psalm 37:31 tn Heb “his.” The pronoun has been translated as plural to agree with the representative or typical “godly” in v. 30.
