Don't be afraid of the wicked,
And do not envy the proud,
For they wither quickly and die,
Like the grass of the ground,
Trust in the Lord, and sow goodness,
Righteously dwell in the land,
And feed yourself on the faithfulness of the Lord!
Delight yourself in the Lord
And He'll fulfill your heart's desires,
Commit your way to the Lord, trusting in Him,
And He will do it, again and again,
He will bring forth your righteousness as the light,
And your justice as the brightness of the sun!
Rest in the Lord and wait patiently,
Do not surrender your peace,
Although it seems evil men prosper
in their wicked schemes,
Cease from your wrath, forsake anger,
Don't be afraid in your heart,
For those who wait for the Lord will inherit the land!
Yet, in a little while, the wicked will be no more,
You will look carefully, search everywhere,
But he won't be found,
But the humble will stand,
And they will inherit the land,
And they will delight in the generous gifts of the Lord!
