Psalm 37:1-11 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Psalm 37

Instruction in Wisdom

Davidic.

Do[a] not be agitated by evildoers;
do not envy those who do wrong.
For they wither quickly like grass
and wilt like tender green plants.

Trust in the Lord and do what is good;
dwell in the land and live securely.[b]
Take delight in the Lord,
and He will give you your heart’s desires.

Commit your way to the Lord;
trust in Him, and He will act,
making your righteousness shine like the dawn,
your justice like the noonday.

Be silent before the Lord and wait expectantly for Him;
do not be agitated by one who prospers in his way,
by the man who carries out evil plans.

Refrain from anger and give up your rage;
do not be agitated—it can only bring harm.
For evildoers will be destroyed,
but those who put their hope in the Lord
will inherit the land.[c]

10 A little while, and the wicked person will be no more;
though you look for him, he will not be there.
11 But the humble will inherit the land[d]
and will enjoy abundant prosperity.
