(By David.)

Trust the Lord

37 Don’t be annoyed by anyone
who does wrong,
    and don’t envy them.
They will soon disappear
    like grass without rain.

Trust the Lord and live right!
    The land will be yours,
    and you will be safe.
Do what the Lord wants,
    and he will give you
    your heart’s desire.

Let the Lord lead you
    and trust him to help.
Then it will be as clear
as the noonday sun
    that you were right.

Be patient and trust the Lord.
    Don’t let it bother you
when all goes well for those
    who do sinful things.
Don’t be angry or furious.
    Anger can lead to sin.
All sinners will disappear,
    but if you trust the Lord,
    the land will be yours.

10 Sinners will soon disappear,
    never to be found,
11 but the poor will take the land
    and enjoy a big harvest.

12 Merciless people make plots
against good people
    and snarl like animals,
13 but the Lord laughs and knows
    their time is coming soon.
14 The wicked kill with swords
and shoot arrows
to murder
    the poor and the needy
    and all who do right.
15 But they will be killed
    by their own swords,
    and their arrows
    will be broken.

16 It is better to live right
and be poor
    than to be sinful and rich.
17 The wicked will lose all
    of their power,
but the Lord gives strength
    to everyone who is good.

18 Those who obey the Lord
    are daily in his care,
    and what he has given them
    will be theirs forever.
