“The Eternal One will not leave him because of His hand nor wrong him in His judgement”
Psalms Chapter 37 תְּהִלִּים
א לְדָוִד: אַל-תִּתְחַר בַּמְּרֵעִים; אַל-תְּקַנֵּא, בְּעֹשֵׂי עַוְלָה.
1 [A Psalm] for David.

Fret not thyself because of evil-doers, neither be thou envious against them that work unrighteousness.
ב כִּי כֶחָצִיר, מְהֵרָה יִמָּלוּ; וּכְיֶרֶק דֶּשֶׁא, יִבּוֹלוּן.
2 Because they shall soon wither like the grass, and fade as the green herb.
ג בְּטַח בַּיהוָה, וַעֲשֵׂה-טוֹב; שְׁכָן-אֶרֶץ, וּרְעֵה אֱמוּנָה.
3 Trust in The Eternal One, and do good; dwell in the land, and cherish truth
ד וְהִתְעַנַּג עַל-יְהוָה; וְיִתֶּן-לְךָ, מִשְׁאֲלֹת לִבֶּךָ.
4 And delight thyself in The Eternal One; and He shall give thee the petitions of thy mind.
ה גּוֹל עַל-יְהוָה דַּרְכֶּךָ; וּבְטַח עָלָיו, וְהוּא יַעֲשֶׂה.
5 Commit thy way unto The Eternal One; trust also in Him, and He will bring it to pass.
ו וְהוֹצִיא כָאוֹר צִדְקֶךָ; וּמִשְׁפָּטֶךָ, כַּצָּהֳרָיִם.
6 And He will make thy righteousness to go forth as the light, and thy right as the noonday.
ז דּוֹם, לַיהוָה– וְהִתְחוֹלֵל-לוֹ:
אַל-תִּתְחַר, בְּמַצְלִיחַ דַּרְכּוֹ; בְּאִישׁ, עֹשֶׂה מְזִמּוֹת.
7 Resign thyself unto The Eternal One, and wait patiently for Him; {N}
fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
ח הֶרֶף מֵאַף, וַעֲזֹב חֵמָה; אַל-תִּתְחַר, אַךְ-לְהָרֵעַ.
8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; fret not thyself, it tendeth only to evil-doing.
ט כִּי-מְרֵעִים, יִכָּרֵתוּן; וְקֹוֵי יְהוָה, הֵמָּה יִירְשׁוּ-אָרֶץ.
9 Because evil-doers shall be cut off; and those that wait for The Eternal One, they shall inherit the earth.
י וְעוֹד מְעַט, וְאֵין רָשָׁע; וְהִתְבּוֹנַנְתָּ עַל-מְקוֹמוֹ וְאֵינֶנּוּ.
10 And yet a little while, and the wicked is no more; yea, thou shalt look well at his place, and he is not.
יא וַעֲנָוִים יִירְשׁוּ-אָרֶץ; וְהִתְעַנְּגוּ, עַל-רֹב שָׁלוֹם.
11 And the humble shall inherit the earth, and delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
יב זֹמֵם רָשָׁע, לַצַּדִּיק; וְחֹרֵק עָלָיו שִׁנָּיו.
12 The wicked plotteth against the righteous, and gnasheth at him with his teeth.
יג אֲדֹנָי יִשְׂחַק-לוֹ: כִּי-רָאָה, כִּי-יָבֹא יוֹמוֹ.
13 The Eternal One doth laugh at him; for He seeth that his day is coming.
יד חֶרֶב, פָּתְחוּ רְשָׁעִים– וְדָרְכוּ קַשְׁתָּם:
לְהַפִּיל, עָנִי וְאֶבְיוֹן; לִטְבוֹחַ, יִשְׁרֵי-דָרֶךְ.
14 The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow; {N}
to cast down the poor and needy, to slay such as are upright in the way;
טו חַרְבָּם, תָּבוֹא בְלִבָּם; וְקַשְּׁתוֹתָם, תִּשָּׁבַרְנָה.
15 Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.
טז טוֹב-מְעַט, לַצַּדִּיק– מֵהֲמוֹן, רְשָׁעִים רַבִּים.
16 Better is a little that the righteous hath than the abundance of many wicked.
יז כִּי זְרוֹעוֹת רְשָׁעִים, תִּשָּׁבַרְנָה; וְסוֹמֵךְ צַדִּיקִים יְהוָה.
17 Because the arms of the wicked shall be broken; but The Eternal One upholdeth the righteous.
יח יוֹדֵעַ יְהוָה, יְמֵי תְמִימִם; וְנַחֲלָתָם, לְעוֹלָם תִּהְיֶה.
18 The Eternal One knoweth the days of them that are wholehearted; and their inheritance shall be for ever.
יט לֹא-יֵבֹשׁוּ, בְּעֵת רָעָה; וּבִימֵי רְעָבוֹן יִשְׂבָּעוּ.
19 They shall not be disappointed in the time of evil; and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
כ כִּי רְשָׁעִים, יֹאבֵדוּ, וְאֹיְבֵי יְהוָה, כִּיקַר כָּרִים; כָּלוּ בֶעָשָׁן כָּלוּ.
20 Because the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of The Eternal One shall be as the fat of lambs–
they shall pass away in smoke, they shall pass away.
כא לֹוֶה רָשָׁע, וְלֹא יְשַׁלֵּם; וְצַדִּיק, חוֹנֵן וְנוֹתֵן.
21 The wicked borroweth, and payeth not; but the righteous dealeth favorably, and giveth.
כב כִּי מְבֹרָכָיו, יִירְשׁוּ אָרֶץ; וּמְקֻלָּלָיו, יִכָּרֵתוּ.
22 Because such as are blessed of Him shall inherit the earth; and they that are cursed of Him shall be cut off.
כג מֵיְהוָה, מִצְעֲדֵי-גֶבֶר כּוֹנָנוּ; וְדַרְכּוֹ יֶחְפָּץ.
23 It is of The Eternal One that a man’s goings are established; and He delighted in his way.
כד כִּי-יִפֹּל לֹא-יוּטָל: כִּי-יְהוָה, סוֹמֵךְ יָדוֹ.
24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; for The Eternal One upholdeth his hand.
כה נַעַר, הָיִיתִי– גַּם-זָקַנְתִּי:
וְלֹא-רָאִיתִי, צַדִּיק נֶעֱזָב; וְזַרְעוֹ, מְבַקֶּשׁ-לָחֶם.
25 I have been young, and now am old; {N}
yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
כו כָּל-הַיּוֹם, חוֹנֵן וּמַלְוֶה; וְזַרְעוֹ, לִבְרָכָה.
26 All the day long he dealeth favorably, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.
כז סוּר מֵרָע, וַעֲשֵׂה-טוֹב; וּשְׁכֹן לְעוֹלָם.
27 Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.
כח כִּי יְהוָה, אֹהֵב מִשְׁפָּט, וְלֹא-יַעֲזֹב אֶת-חֲסִידָיו, לְעוֹלָם נִשְׁמָרוּ;
וְזֶרַע רְשָׁעִים נִכְרָת.
28 Because The Eternal One loveth justice, and forsaketh not His loyal ones; they are preserved for ever; {N}
but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.
כט צַדִּיקִים יִירְשׁוּ-אָרֶץ; וְיִשְׁכְּנוּ לָעַד עָלֶיהָ.
29 The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.
ל פִּי-צַדִּיק, יֶהְגֶּה חָכְמָה; וּלְשׁוֹנוֹ, תְּדַבֵּר מִשְׁפָּט.
30 The mouth of the righteous uttereth wisdom, and his tongue speaketh justice.
לא תּוֹרַת אֱלֹהָיו בְּלִבּוֹ; לֹא תִמְעַד אֲשֻׁרָיו.
31 The teaching of his Mighty One, is in his mind; none of his steps slide.
לב צוֹפֶה רָשָׁע, לַצַּדִּיק; וּמְבַקֵּשׁ, לַהֲמִיתוֹ.
32 The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him.
לג יְהוָה, לֹא-יַעַזְבֶנּוּ בְיָדוֹ; וְלֹא יַרְשִׁיעֶנּוּ, בְּהִשָּׁפְטוֹ.
33 The Eternal One will not leave him because of His hand, nor wrong him in His judgement.
לד קַוֵּה אֶל-יְהוָה, וּשְׁמֹר דַּרְכּוֹ, וִירוֹמִמְךָ, לָרֶשֶׁת אָרֶץ;
בְּהִכָּרֵת רְשָׁעִים תִּרְאֶה.
34 Wait for The Eternal One, and keep His way, and He will exalt thee to inherit the land; {N}
when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.
לה רָאִיתִי, רָשָׁע עָרִיץ; וּמִתְעָרֶה, כְּאֶזְרָח רַעֲנָן.
35 I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a leafy tree in its native soil.
לו וַיַּעֲבֹר, וְהִנֵּה אֵינֶנּוּ; וָאֲבַקְשֵׁהוּ, וְלֹא נִמְצָא.
36 And one passed by, and, lo, he was not; yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.
לז שְׁמָר-תָּם, וּרְאֵה יָשָׁר: כִּי-אַחֲרִית לְאִישׁ שָׁלוֹם.
37 Mark the man of integrity, and behold the upright; for there is a future for the man of peace.
לח וּפֹשְׁעִים, נִשְׁמְדוּ יַחְדָּו; אַחֲרִית רְשָׁעִים נִכְרָתָה.
38 And transgressors shall be destroyed together; the future of the wicked shall be cut off.
לט וּתְשׁוּעַת צַדִּיקִים, מֵיְהוָה; מָעוּזָּם, בְּעֵת צָרָה.
39 And the salvation of the righteous is from The Eternal One; He is their stronghold in the time of trouble.
מ וַיַּעְזְרֵם יְהוָה, וַיְפַלְּטֵם: יְפַלְּטֵם מֵרְשָׁעִים, וְיוֹשִׁיעֵם–כִּי-חָסוּ בוֹ.
40 And The Eternal One helpeth them, and delivereth them; He delivereth them from the wicked, and saveth them, because they have taken refuge in Him. {P}
