Psalm 37

Security of Those Who Trust in the Lord, and Insecurity of the Wicked.

A Psalm of David.

1Do not fret because of evildoers,
Be not envious toward wrongdoers.
For they will wither quickly like the grass
And fade like the green herb.
Trust in the Lord and do good;
Dwell in the land and [a]cultivate faithfulness.
Delight yourself in the Lord;
And He will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the Lord,
Trust also in Him, and He will do it.
He will bring forth your righteousness as the light
And your judgment as the noonday.

[b]Rest in the Lord and wait [c]patiently for Him;
Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way,
Because of the man who carries out wicked schemes.
Cease from anger and forsake wrath;
Do not fret; it leads only to evildoing.
For evildoers will be cut off,
But those who wait for the Lord, they will inherit the land.
10 Yet a little while and the wicked man will be no more;
And you will look carefully for his place and he will not be there.
11 But the humble will inherit the land
And will delight themselves in abundant prosperity.

12 The wicked plots against the righteous
And gnashes at him with his teeth.
13 The Lord laughs at him,
For He sees his day is coming.
14 The wicked have drawn the sword and bent their bow
To cast down the afflicted and the needy,
To slay those who are upright in conduct.
15 Their sword will enter their own heart,
And their bows will be broken.

16 Better is the little of the righteous
Than the abundance of many wicked.
17 For the arms of the wicked will be broken,
But the Lord sustains the righteous.
18 The Lord knows the days of the [d]blameless,
And their inheritance will be forever.
19 They will not be ashamed in the time of evil,
And in the days of famine they will have abundance.
20 But the wicked will perish;
And the enemies of the Lord will be like the [e]glory of the pastures,
They vanish—like smoke they vanish away.
21 The wicked borrows and does not pay back,
But the righteous is gracious and gives.
22 For those blessed by Him will inherit the land,
But those cursed by Him will be cut off.

23 The steps of a man are established by the Lord,
And He delights in his way.
24 When he falls, he will not be hurled headlong,
Because the Lord is the One [f]who holds his hand.
25 I have been young and now I am old,
Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken
Or his [g]descendants begging bread.
26 All day long he is gracious and lends,
And his [h]descendants are a blessing.

27 Depart from evil and do good,
[i]So you will abide forever.
28 For the Lord loves [j]justice
And does not forsake His godly ones;
They are preserved forever,
But the [k]descendants of the wicked will be cut off.
29 The righteous will inherit the land
And dwell in it forever.
30 The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom,
And his tongue speaks justice.
31 The law of his God is in his heart;
His steps do not slip.
32 The wicked spies upon the righteous
And seeks to kill him.
33 The Lord will not leave him in his hand
Or let him be condemned when he is judged.
34 Wait for the Lord and keep His way,
And He will exalt you to inherit the land;
When the wicked are cut off, you will see it.

35 I have seen a wicked, violent man
Spreading himself like a luxuriant [l]tree in its native soil.
36 Then [m]he passed away, and lo, he was no more;
I sought for him, but he could not be found.
37 Mark the [n]blameless man, and behold the upright;
For the man of peace will have a [o]posterity.
38 But transgressors will be altogether destroyed;
The [p]posterity of the wicked will be cut off.
39 But the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord;
He is their strength in time of trouble.
40 The Lord helps them and delivers them;
He delivers them from the wicked and saves them,
Because they take refuge in Him.

Заб 37

1Песнь Давуда. В напоминание.

Вечный, не в ярости упрекай меня
    и не во гневе наказывай.
Ведь стрелы Твои пронзили меня,
    и рука Твоя на мне тяжела.
От гнева Твоего
    нет на теле моём здорового места.
От греха моего
    не осталось здоровья в костях моих.
Грехи мои меня поглотили;
    они, как бремя, отягощают меня.

Мои раны смердят и гноятся
    из-за глупости моей.
Я согбен и совсем поник;
    весь день хожу скорбя.
Тело моё горит огнём,
    и нет на мне здорового места.
Я изнемог и полностью сокрушён,
    и от муки сердца кричу.

10 Все мои желания пред Тобой, Владыка,
    и вздохи мои от Тебя не скрыты.
11 Сердце моё колотится, силы мне изменили;
    даже свет в глазах моих меркнет.
12 Мои друзья и товарищи из-за язв меня избегают,
    и соседи мои стоят вдалеке.
13 Те, кто желает моей смерти, ставят мне сети;
    те, кто желает мне зла, говорят о моей погибели;
    целый день они строят козни.

14 А я, как глухой, не слышу,
    как немой, не размыкаю уст.
15 Да, я стал как тот, кто не слышит,
    в чьих устах не найти ответа.
16 Вечный, на Тебя я уповаю;
    Ты ответишь, Владыка, мой Бог.
17 Я сказал: «Не дай им торжествовать
    и кичиться передо мной,
    когда мои ноги колеблются».

18 Я близок к падению,
    и боль моя предо мной всегда.
19 Я признаю моё беззаконие
    и скорблю о своём грехе.
20 Могущественны и крепки те, кто враждует со мной;
    умножились ненавидящие меня без причины.
21 Злом воздают мне за добро,
    враждуют со мною за то, что добру я следую.

22 Вечный, не оставь меня!
    Не удаляйся от меня, мой Бог!
23 Поспеши мне на помощь,
    Владыка, мой Спаситель!
