Epifanie: Sewende Sondag na die Epifanie

Psalm

The Destiny of the Wicked and of the Good

1Don't be worried on account of the wicked;

don't be jealous of those who do wrong.

2They will soon disappear like grass that dries up;

they will die like plants that wither.

3Trust in the LORD and do good;

live in the land and be safe.

4Seek your happiness in the LORD,

and he will give you your heart's desire.

5Give yourself to the LORD;

trust in him, and he will help you;

6he will make your righteousness shine like the noonday sun.

7Be patient and wait for the LORD to act;

don't be worried about those who prosper

or those who succeed in their evil plans.

8Don't give in to worry or anger;

it only leads to trouble.

9Those who trust in the LORD will possess the land,

but the wicked will be driven out.

10Soon the wicked will disappear;

you may look for them, but you won't find them;

11the humble will possess the land

and enjoy prosperity and peace.

Psalms 37:1-11GNBOpen in Bible reader

39The LORD saves the righteous

and protects them in times of trouble.

40He helps them and rescues them;

he saves them from the wicked,

because they go to him for protection.
