27 Turn away from evil and do good, and dwell forever and ever.
28 For the Lord loves judgment, and he will not abandon his saints. They will be kept safe in eternity. The unjust will be punished, and the offspring of the impious will perish.
29 But the just will inherit the earth, and they will dwell upon it forever and ever.
30 The mouth of the just one will express wisdom, and his tongue will speak judgment.
31 The law of his God is in his heart, and his steps shall not be supplanted.
32 The sinner considers the just one and seeks to put him to death.
33 But the Lord will not abandon him into his hands, nor condemn him, when he will be judged.
34 Wait for the Lord, and keep to his way. And he will exalt you, so as to inherit the land that you may seize. When the sinners will have passed away, then you shall see.
35 I have seen the impious over-exalted, and lifted up like the cedars of Lebanon.
36 And I passed by, and behold, he was not. And I sought him, and his place was not found.
37 Keep to innocence, and gaze upon fairness: because there are allotments for the peaceful man.
38 But the unjust will be destroyed together: the allotments of the impious will pass away.
39 But the salvation of the just is from the Lord, and he is their protector in time of tribulation.
40 And the Lord will help them and free them. And he will rescue them from sinners and save them, because they have hoped in him.
