Psalm 37:27-29 International Standard Version (ISV)

27 Depart from evil, and do good,
    and you will live in the land[a] forever.
28 Indeed, the Lord loves justice,
    and he will not abandon his godly ones.
They are kept safe forever,
    but the lawless will be chased away,[b]
        and the descendants of the wicked will be cut off.

29 The righteous will inherit the land,
    and they will dwell in it forever.
