King James Version

Psalm 37

1Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.

For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.

Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.

Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.

Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.

Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.

For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the earth.

10 For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.

11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.

12 The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.

13 The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming.

14 The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation.

15 Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.

16 A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.

17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the Lord upholdeth the righteous.

18 The Lord knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever.

19 They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.

20 But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the Lord shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.

21 The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth.

22 For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and they that be cursed of him shall be cut off.

23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.

24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand.

25 I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.

26 He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.

27 Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.

28 For the Lord loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.

29 The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.

30 The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment.

31 The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.

32 The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him.

33 The Lord will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged.

34 Wait on the Lord, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.

35 I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.

36 Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.

37 Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace.

38 But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off.

39 But the salvation of the righteous is of the Lord: he is their strength in the time of trouble.

40 And the Lord shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.

诗篇 37

义人和恶人的结局

大卫的诗。

1不要因为恶人而烦恼,
也不要羡慕作恶之人,
因为他们如瞬息枯萎的草芥,
又如转眼消逝的绿草。

要信靠耶和华,要行善,
要在这片土地上安然度日。
要以耶和华为乐,
祂必成全你的愿望。
要把一切交托给耶和华,
信靠祂,祂必帮助你,
使你的公义如晨光照耀,
你的仁义如日中天。
要在耶和华面前安静,
耐心等候祂,
不要因恶人道路通达、阴谋得逞而愤愤不平。
你要抑制怒气,除掉愤怒;
不要心怀不平,
那会导致你作恶。
因为作恶的终必灭亡,
但等候耶和华的必承受土地。
10 再过片刻,恶人必不复存在,
无处可寻。
11 但谦卑人必承受土地,
得享太平。

12 恶人谋害义人,
对他们咬牙切齿。
13 但耶和华嗤笑邪恶人,
因为祂知道他们末日将临。
14 恶人拔剑张弓要消灭穷苦人,
杀戮正直人,
15 但他们的剑必刺穿自己的心,
他们的弓必被折断。

16 义人淡泊一生强过恶人财富如山。
17 因为恶人的势力终必瓦解,
耶和华必扶持义人。
18 耶和华天天看顾纯全无过的人,
他们的产业永远长存。
19 他们在灾难中不致绝望,
在饥荒时仍得饱足。
20 但恶人必灭亡,
上帝的仇敌必像野地枯萎的花草,
消逝如烟。

21 恶人借债不还,
义人慷慨给予。
22 蒙耶和华赐福的人必承受土地,
被耶和华咒诅的人必遭铲除。
23 耶和华引领义人的脚步,
喜悦他们所走的路。
24 他们即使失脚,也不会跌倒,
因为耶和华的手扶持他们。

25 从幼年到老年,
我从未见过义人遭弃,
也未见其后人讨饭。
26 他们乐善好施,
后代都蒙祝福。

27 你要离恶行善,
就必永远安居。
28 因为耶和华喜爱正义,
不丢弃信靠祂的人,
永远保护他们。
恶人的后代必被铲除。
29 义人必承受土地,
在地上永远安居。

30 义人口出智慧,诉说正义,
31 铭记上帝的律法,
从不失脚。

32 恶人窥探义人,
伺机谋害。
33 但耶和华不会让恶人得逞,
也不会让义人在审判时被定罪。

34 要等候耶和华,
坚守祂的道,
祂必赐你土地,使你有尊荣。
你必亲眼看见恶人被铲除。
35 我见过邪恶残暴之人,
乍看如葱茏的黎巴嫩香柏树,
36 再一看,
他已经消失得无影无踪,
无处可寻。
37 你看那纯全正直、爱好和平的人,
他们前途美好。
38 罪人必遭毁灭,
恶人必被铲除。
39 耶和华拯救义人,
患难时作他们的庇护所。
40 耶和华帮助他们,
拯救他们脱离恶人,
因为他们投靠祂。
