Psalm 37 3-11


3 Trust in the Lord and do good;
live in the land and be safe.

4 Seek your happiness in the Lord,
and he will give you your heart's desire.

5 Give yourself to the Lord;
trust in him, and he will help you;

6 he will make your righteousness shine like the noonday sun.

7 Be patient and wait for the Lord to act;
don't be worried about those who prosper
or those who succeed in their evil plans.

8 Don't give in to worry or anger;
it only leads to trouble.

9 Those who trust in the Lord will possess the land,
but the wicked will be driven out.

10 Soon the wicked will disappear;
you may look for them, but you won't find them;

11 the humble will possess the land and enjoy prosperity and peace.
