psalm 37: 8-17 Refrain from anger and turn from wrath do not fret it leads only to evil. 9 For those who are evil will be destroyed, but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land. 10 A little while and the wicked will be no more though you look for them, they will not be found. 11 But the meek will inherit the land and enjoy peace and prosperity. 12 The wicked plot against the righteous and gnash their teeth at them 13 but the Lord laughs at the wicked for he knows their day is coming 14 The wicked draw the sword and bend the bow to bring down the poor and needy, to slay those whose ways are upright 15 But their swords will pierce their own hearts and their bows will be broken 16 better the little that the righteous have than the wealth of many wicked; 17 for the power of the wicked will be broken. but the Lord upholds the righteous.
