Psalm 36

Of David.

Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.
For they shall soon be withered like the grass, and shall quickly fall away like the green herb.
Hope in the Lord, and do good, and dwell in the land; and thou shalt be fed with its riches.
Delight thyself in the Lord, and He shall give thee the desires of thy heart.

Disclose thy way unto the Lord, hope also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass.
And He shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.
Submit thyself unto the Lord, and entreat thou Him; fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who worketh iniquity.
Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; fret not thyself to do evil.
For evildoers shall be cut off; but those that wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the earth.
For yet a little while, and the sinner shall not be; yea, thou shalt seek his place, and shalt not find it.
But the meek shall inherit the earth, and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
The sinner shall watch for the righteous, and gnash upon him with his teeth.
But the Lord shall laugh at him, for He seeth that his day is coming.
The sinners have drawn out the sword, they have bent their bow; to cast down the poor and needy, to slay such as be upright in heart.
Let their sword enter into their own heart, and let their bows be broken.
A little that the righteous man hath is better than the many riches of sinners.
For the arms of the sinners shall be broken, but the Lord upholdeth the righteous.
The Lord knoweth the ways of the blameless, and their inheritance shall be for ever.
They shall not be put to shame in an evil time, and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
For the sinners shall perish, and the enemies of the Lord, at the instant when they are glorified and exalted, vanish like smoke.
The sinner borroweth, and payeth not again; but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth.
For such as bless Him shall inherit the earth; but they that curse Him shall perish.
The steps of a man are ordered by the Lord, and He shall delight in his way.
When he falleth, he shall not be utterly cast down, for the Lord upholdeth his hand.
I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
The righteous is merciful, and lendeth all the day long, and his seed shall be blessed.
Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.
For the Lord loveth judgment, and forsaketh not His saints; they shall be preserved for ever. But the trangressor shall be banished, and the seed of the ungodly shall be cut off.
The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever. The mouth of the righteous shall meditate wisdom, and his tongue shall talk of judgment.
The law of his God is in his heart, and his steps shall not be tripped.
The sinner watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him.
But the Lord will not leave him in his hands, nor condemn him when He judgeth him.
Wait on the Lord, and keep His way, and He shall exalt thee to inherit the land; when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.
I have seen the ungodly highly exalted, and lifting himself up like the cedars of Lebanon.
Yet I passed by, and lo, he was not; yea, I sought him, but his place could not be found.
Keep innocency, and behold uprightness, for there is a remnant for the man of peace.
But the transgressors shall be destroyed together; the remnant of the ungodly shall perish.
But the salvation of the righteous is of the Lord, and He is their defender in the time of trouble.
And the Lord shall help them, and deliver them; and He shall rescue them from sinners, and save them, because they have hoped in Him.
