1 Do not fret because of evildoers, Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity.
2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, And wither as the green herb.
3 Trust in the Lord , and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
4 Delight yourself also in the Lord , And He shall give you the desires of your heart.
5 Commit your way to the Lord , Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass.
6 He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, And your justice as the noonday.
7 Rest in the Lord , and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass.
8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; Do not fret— it only causes harm.
9 For evildoers shall be cut off; But those who wait on the Lord , They shall inherit the earth.
