1 Don’t upset yourself because of evil men;
Don’t be envious of those who do wrong.
2 For they soon will fade like the grass,
And they wither away like green herbs.
3 Trust in the LORD; do what is good.
Dwell in the land; feed upon faith.
4 Delight in the LORD, and he will give you
The desires of your heart.
5 Roll your path away and put it on the LORD.
Trust him; he will act. 6 And he will bring forth
Your righteousness like the light,
And your rightful cause like midday.
7 Don’t make a sound in the LORD’s presence.
Settle yourself to wait upon him.
And don’t be upset when man’s way succeeds,
And when he makes his plans.
8 Put your rage aside, and let your anger go.
Don’t upset yourself; it leads only to harm.
9 For those who do wrong are cut off,
But those who wait for God own the land.
10 It won’t be long ‘til there are no wicked.
Look at his place; he is not there.
11 The meek own the land, and they take delight
In abundance of peace.
