Psalm 37 Good News Translation
Don’t be worried on account of the wicked; don’t be jealous of those who do wrong.
2 They will soon disappear like grass that dries up; they will die like plants that wither.
3 Trust in the Lord and do good; live in the land and be safe.
4 Seek your happiness in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desire.
5 Give yourself to the Lord; trust in him, and he will help you;
6 he will make your righteousness shine like the noonday sun.
7 Be patient and wait for the Lord to act; don’t be worried about those who prosper or those who succeed in their evil plans.
8 Don’t give in to worry or anger; it only leads to trouble.
9 Those who trust in the Lord will possess the land, but the wicked will be driven out.
10 Soon the wicked will disappear; you may look for them, but you won’t find them;
11 but the humble will possess the land and enjoy prosperity and peace.
12 The wicked plot against good people and glare at them with hate.
13 But the Lord laughs at wicked people, because he knows they will soon be destroyed.
14 The wicked draw their swords and bend their bows to kill the poor and needy, to slaughter those who do what is right;
15 but they will be killed by their own swords, and their bows will be smashed.
16 The little that a good person owns is worth more than the wealth of all the wicked,
17 because the Lord will take away the strength of the wicked, but protect those who are good.
18 The Lord takes care of those who obey him, and the land will be theirs forever.
19 They will not suffer when times are bad; they will have enough in time of famine.
20 But the wicked will die; the enemies of the Lord will vanish like wild flowers; they will disappear like smoke.
21 The wicked borrow and never pay back, but good people are generous with their gifts.
22 Those who are blessed by the Lord will possess the land, but those who are cursed by him will be driven out.
23 The Lord guides us in the way we should go and protects those who please him.
24 If they fall, they will not stay down, because the Lord will help them up.
25 I am old now; I have lived a long time, but I have never seen good people abandoned by the Lord or their children begging for food.
26 At all times they give freely and lend to others, and their children are a blessing.
27 Turn away from evil and do good, and your descendants will always live in the land;
28 for the Lord loves what is right and does not abandon his faithful people. He protects them forever, but the descendants of the wicked will be driven out.
29 The righteous will possess the land and live in it forever.
30 The words of good people are wise, and they are always fair.
31 They keep the law of their God in their hearts and never depart from it.
32 Wicked people watch good people and try to kill them;
33 but the Lord will not abandon them to their enemy’s power or let them be condemned when they are on trial.
34 Put your hope in the Lord and obey his commands; he will honor you by giving you the land, and you will see the wicked driven out.
35 I once knew someone wicked who was a tyrant; he towered over everyone like a cedar of Lebanon;
36 but later I passed by, and he wasn’t there; I looked for him, but couldn’t find him.
37 Notice good people, observe the righteous; peaceful people have descendants,
38 but sinners are completely destroyed, and their descendants are wiped out.
39 The Lord saves the righteous and protects them in times of trouble.
40 He helps them and rescues them; he saves them from the wicked, because they go to him for protection.
God is indeed good to Israel to those who have pure hearts.
2 But I had nearly lost confidence; my faith was almost gone
3 because I was jealous of the proud when I saw that things go well for the wicked.
4 They do not suffer pain; they are strong and healthy.
5 They do not suffer as other people do; they do not have the troubles that others have.
6 And so they wear pride like a necklace and violence like a robe;
7 their hearts pour out evil, and their minds are busy with wicked schemes.
8 They laugh at other people and speak of evil things; they are proud and make plans to oppress others.
9 They speak evil of God in heaven and give arrogant orders to everyone on earth,
10 so that even God’s people turn to them and eagerly believe whatever they say.
11 They say, “God will not know; the Most High will not find out.”
12 That is what the wicked are like. They have plenty and are always getting more.
13 Is it for nothing, then, that I have kept myself pure and have not committed sin?
14 O God, you have made me suffer all day long; every morning you have punished me.
15 If I had said such things, I would not be acting as one of your people.
16 I tried to think this problem through, but it was too difficult for me
17 until I went into your Temple. Then I understood what will happen to the wicked.
18 You will put them in slippery places and make them fall to destruction!
19 They are instantly destroyed; they go down to a horrible end.
20 They are like a dream that goes away in the morning; when you rouse yourself, O Lord, they disappear.
21 When my thoughts were bitter and my feelings were hurt,
22 I was as stupid as an animal; I did not understand you.
23 Yet I always stay close to you, and you hold me by the hand.
24 You guide me with your instruction and at the end you will receive me with honor.
25 What else do I have in heaven but you? Since I have you, what else could I want on earth?
26 My mind and my body may grow weak, but God is my strength; he is all I ever need.
27 Those who abandon you will certainly perish; you will destroy those who are unfaithful to you.
28 But as for me, how wonderful to be near God, to find protection with the Sovereign Lord and to proclaim all that he has done!
What Will Happen To The Wicked?
And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.
(The Lord Will Feed Them With Their Own Flesh & They Shall Drink Their Own Blood!)
What Will Happen To The Wicked?
They Shall Go Into Captivity:
Therefore all they that devour thee shall be devoured; and all thine adversaries, every one of them, shall go into captivity; and they that spoil thee shall be a spoil, and all that prey upon thee will I give for a prey.
What Will Happen To The Wicked?
They Are Groomed For Destruction:
When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; it is that they shall be destroyed for ever:
Lastly The Lord Is Saying in Exodus 14:14 “The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.”
Psalm 46:10 “Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.”
And Also in Hebrews 6:10 “God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.”
Deuteronomy 3:22 “Do not be afraid of them; the LORD your God himself will fight for you”
