1902 Rotherham's Emphasized Bible (EBR)
David persuadeth to patience and confidence in God, by the different estate of the godly and the wicked.
37:1 ¶ [[David's. [An Alphabetical Psalm.]]] Burn not with vexation because of evil-doers, Be not envious of the workers of perversity;
37:2 For, like grass, soon shall they wither, and, like green herbage, shall they fade.
37:3 Trust in Yahweh, and do good, Dwell in the land, and feed on fidelity;
37:4 Yea, rest thy delight on Yahweh, that he may give thee the requests of thy heart.
37:5 Roll on Yahweh thy way, Trust also in him, and, he, will effectually work:
37:6 So will he bring forth, as the light, thy righteousness, and thy vindication as the noonday.
37:7 ¶ Be resigned to Yahweh, yea wait with longing for him; Burn not with vexation at him who prospereth in his way,at the man who doeth wickedness.
37:8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath, Burn not with vexation[it would be] only to do evil;
37:9 For, evil doers, shall be cut off, but, as for them who wait for Yahweh, they, shall inherit the earth.
37:10 Yet a little, therefore, and the lawless one shall not be, Yea thou shalt look about, over his placeand he shall have vanished!
37:11 But, the patient oppressed-ones, shall inherit the earth, and shall delight themselves over the abundance of prosperity.
37:12 Plotting is the lawless one, against the just, and gnashing upon him with his teeth.
37:13 My Lord, shall laugh at him, for he seeth, that his day, will come.
37:14 A sword, have the lawless, drawn out, and have trodden their bow,To bring down the oppressed and the needy, To slaughter the upright in life:
37:15 Their sword, shall enter into their own heart, and, their bow, shall be broken.
37:16 Better the little of the righteous man, than the abundance of the lawless who are mighty;
37:17 For, the arms of the lawless, shall be broken, But Yahweh is upholding the righteous.
37:18 Yahweh knoweth the days of the blameless, that, their inheritance, unto times age-abiding, shall continue.
37:19 They shall not be ashamed in the time of calamity, and, in the days of famine, shall they be filled.
37:20 For, the lawless, shall perish, and, the foes of Yahweh, be like the glory of the meadows, They have vanished! In smoke, have they vanished!
37:21 ¶ A lawless man borroweth, and will not repay, But, a righteous man, showeth favour and giveth;
37:22 For, such as are blessed of him, shall inherit the earth, But, the cursed of him, shall be cut off.
37:23 From Yahweh, are the steps of a man made firm, When, with his way, he is well pleased:
37:24 Though he fall, he shall not be hurled headlong, For, Yahweh, is holding his hand.
37:25 Young, have I been, moreover am old,Yet have I not seen, A righteous man forsaken, Nor his seed begging bread:
37:26 All day long, is he showing favour and lending, his seed, therefore, shall have a blessing.
37:27 Turn from evil, and do good, and so settle down, unto times age-abiding.
37:28 For, Yahweh, loveth justice, and will not forsake his men of lovingkindness, Unto times age-abiding, have the perverse been destroyed,and the seed of the lawless, been cut off.
37:29 The righteous, shall inherit the earth, that they may settle down, to futurity, thereupon.
37:30 The mouth of a righteous man, softly uttereth wisdom, and, his tongue, speaketh justice:
37:31 The law of his God, is in his heart, his steps shall not swerve.
37:32 The lawless man, lieth in wait, for the just, and seeketh to put him to death:
37:33 Yahweh, will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him, when he is judged.
37:34 ¶ Wait for Yahweh, and observe thou his path, that he may exalt thee, to inherit the earth, On the cutting off of the lawless, shalt thou look.
37:35 I have seen a lawless man, a tyrant, and spreading himself out, like a cedar in Lebanon;
37:36 Then I passed by, and lo! he had vanished! Yea I sought him, but he could not be found.
37:37 Mark the blameless man, and behold the upright, for there is a hereafter for the man of peace;
37:38 But, transgressors, are to be destroyed together, the hereafter of lawless men, is to be cut off.
37:39 But, the deliverance of the righteous, is from Yahweh, their refuge in a time of distress.
37:40 Thus hath Yahweh helped them, thus hath he delivered them,He will deliver them from the lawless, and will save them, because they have sought refuge in him.
