105 gYour word is a lamp to my feet
and a light to my path.
106 I have hsworn an oath and confirmed it,
to keep your irighteous rules.
107 I am severely jafflicted;
kgive me life, O Lord, according to your word!
108 Accept lmy freewill offerings of praise, O Lord,
and mteach me your rules.
109 I hold my life nin my hand continually,
but I do not oforget your law.
110 The wicked have laid pa snare for me,
but qI do not stray from your precepts.
111 Your testimonies are rmy heritage forever,
for they are sthe joy of my heart.
112 I tincline my heart to perform your statutes
He Will Not Forsake His Saints
1 Of David.
37 uFret not yourself because of evildoers;
be not venvious of wrongdoers!
and wither ylike the green herb.
3 zTrust in the Lord, and do good;
4 bDelight yourself in the Lord,
and he will cgive you the desires of your heart.
5 dCommit your way to the Lord;
ztrust in him, and he will act.
6 eHe will bring forth your righteousness as the light,
and your justice as fthe noonday.
7 gBe still before the Lord and wait patiently for him;
over the man who carries out evil devices!
8 jRefrain from anger, and forsake wrath!
hFret not yourself; it tends only to evil.
9 kFor the evildoers shall be cut off,
but those who wait for the Lord shall linherit the land.
10 In mjust a little while, the wicked will be no more;
though you look carefully at nhis place, he will not be there.
11 But othe meek shall inherit the land
and delight themselves in pabundant peace.
12 The wicked qplots against the righteous
and rgnashes his teeth at him,
13 but the Lord slaughs at the wicked,
for he sees that his tday is coming.
14 The wicked draw the sword and ubend their bows
to bring down the poor and needy,
to slay those whose vway is upright;
15 their sword shall enter their own heart,
and their wbows shall be broken.
16 xBetter is the little that the righteous has
than the abundance of many wicked.
17 For ythe arms of the wicked shall be broken,
but the Lord zupholds the righteous.
18 The Lord aknows the days of the blameless,
and their bheritage will remain forever;
19 they are not put to shame in evil times;
in cthe days of famine they have abundance.
20 But the wicked will perish;
the enemies of the Lord are like dthe glory of the pastures;
they vanish—like esmoke they vanish away.
