New King James Version
<<< Previous Chapter ................................. Next Chapter >>>
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.
10. For yet a little while and the wicked shall be no more; Indeed, you will look carefully for his place, But it shall be no more.
14. The wicked have drawn the sword And have bent their bow, To cast down the poor and needy, To slay those who are of upright conduct.
20. But the wicked shall perish; And the enemies of the Lord, Like the splendor of the meadows, shall vanish. Into smoke they shall vanish away.
25. I have been young, and now am old; Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, Nor his descendants begging bread.
28. For the Lord loves justice, And does not forsake His saints; They are preserved forever, But the descendants of the wicked shall be cut off.
34. Wait on the Lord, And keep His way, And He shall exalt you to inherit the land; When the wicked are cut off, you shall see it.
39. But the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord; He is their strength in the time of trouble.
