Blessings to the righteous
A Psalm of David.
Fret Ps. 73:3;Prov. 23:17not thyself because of evildoers,
Neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.
For they shall soon be cut down Ps. 90:5,6like the grass,
And wither as the green herb.
Trust in the Lord, and do good;
So shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
Is. 58:14Delight thyself also in the Lord;
And he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
Ps. 55:22;Mat. 6:25Commit thy way unto the Lord;
Trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
Job 11:17And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light,
And thy judgment as the noonday.
Rest in the Lord, Lam. 3:26and wait patiently for him:
Fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way,
Because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
Cease from anger, and forsake wrath:
Ps. 73:3;Eph. 4:26Fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.
For evildoers shall be cut off:
But those that wait upon the Lord, they shall Is. 57:13inherit the earth.
For Heb. 10:36yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be:
Yea, Job 7:10thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.
Mat. 5:5But the meek shall inherit the earth;
And shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
The wicked plotteth against the just,
Ps. 35:16And gnasheth upon him with his teeth.
Ps. 2:4The Lord shall laugh at him:
For he seeth that 1 Sam. 26:10his day is coming.
The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow,
To cast down the poor and needy,
And to slay such as be of upright conversation.
Ps. 9:16Their sword shall enter into their own heart,
And their bows shall be broken.
Prov. 15:16A little that a righteous man hath
Is better than the riches of many wicked.
For Ps. 10:15the arms of the wicked shall be broken:
But the Lord upholdeth the righteous.
The Lord Ps. 1:6knoweth the days of the upright:
And their inheritance shall be Is. 60:21for ever.
They shall not be ashamed in the evil time:
And Ps. 33:19in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
But the wicked shall perish,
And the enemies of the Lord shall be as the fat of lambs:
They shall consume; Ps. 102:3into smoke shall they consume away.
The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again:
But Ps. 112:5,9the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth.
Prov. 3:33For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth;
And they that be cursed of him shall be cut off.
1 Sam. 2:9The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord:
And he delighteth in his way.
Prov. 24:16Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down:
For the Lord upholdeth him with his hand.
I have been young, and now am old;
Yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken,
Nor his seed Job 15:23begging bread.
Deut. 15:8He is ever merciful, and lendeth;
And his seed is blessed.
Ps. 34:14Depart from evil, and do good;
And dwell for evermore.
For the Lord Is. 30:18loveth judgment,
And forsaketh not his saints;
They are preserved for ever:
Ps. 21:10But the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.
Prov. 2:21The righteous shall inherit the land,
And dwell therein for ever.
Mat. 12:35The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom,
And his tongue talketh of judgment.
Deut. 6:6The law of his God is in his heart;
None of his steps shall slide.
The wicked Ps. 10:8watcheth the righteous,
And seeketh to slay him.
The Lord 2 Pet. 2:9will not leave him in his hand,
Nor Ps. 109:31condemn him when he is judged.
Ps. 27:14Wait on the Lord, and keep his way,
And he shall exalt thee to inherit the land:
Ps. 52:5,6When the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.
Job 5:3I have seen the wicked in great power,
And spreading himself like a green bay tree.
Yet he Job 20:5passed away, and lo, he was not:
Yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.
Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright:
For Is. 32:17the end of that man is peace.
Ps. 1:4But the transgressors shall be destroyed together:
The end of the wicked shall be cut off.
But Ps. 3:8the salvation of the righteous is of the Lord:
He is their strength Ps. 9:9in the time of trouble.
And Is. 31:5the Lord shall help them, and deliver them:
He shall deliver them from the wicked,
And save them, 1 Chr. 5:20because they trust in him.
The burden of suffering
