37 Don’t be annoyed by anyone who does wrong, and don’t envy them. 2 They will soon disappear like grass without rain.
3 Trust the Lord and live right! The land will be yours, and you will be safe. 4 Do what the Lord wants, and he will give you your heart’s desire.
5 Let the Lord lead you and trust him to help. 6 Then it will be as clear as the noonday sun that you were right.
7 Be patient and trust the Lord. Don’t let it bother you when all goes well for those who do sinful things. 8 Don’t be angry or furious. Anger can lead to sin. 9 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.
