The Holy Bible, King James Version Revised

The Book of Psalms


Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious of the workers of iniquity.
    2 For they shall soon wither like the grass, and fade as the green herb.
    3 Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and thou shalt be in safety.
    4 Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
    5 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
    6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy justice as the noonday.
    7 Rest in the LORD, and 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.
    8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself, for it leadeth only to evil doing.
    9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.
    10 For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.
    11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
    12 The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.
    13 The LORD shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming.
    14 The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay them that walk uprightly.
    15 Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.
    16 A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.
    17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD upholdeth the righteous.
    18 The LORD knoweth the days of the blameless: and their inheritance shall be for ever.
    19 They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall have abundance.
    20 But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the LORD shall be as the glory of fields: they shall vanish; like smoke shall they vanish away.
    21 The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous is gracious, and giveth.
    22 For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; but they that be cursed of him shall be cut off.
    23 The steps of a man are ordered by the LORD, when he delighteth in his way.
    24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand.
    25 I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
    26 He is ever gracious, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.
    27 Depart from evil, and do good; so shall ye abide for evermore.
    28 For the LORD loveth justice, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.
    29 The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.
    30 The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of justice.
    31 The law of his God is in his heart; none of his footsteps shall slip.
    32 The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him.
    33 The LORD will not leave him in his hand, nor let him be condemned when he is judged.
    34 Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.
    35 I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green tree that groweth in its own soil.
    36 Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.
    37 Mark the blameless man, and behold the upright: for there is a posterity for the man of peace.
    38 But the transgressors shall be destroyed altogether: the posterity of the wicked shall be cut off.
    39 But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble.
    40 And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they take refuge in him.
