3 Hope in the Lord and do good, and dwell in the land, and so you shall be pastured with its riches.
4 Delight in the Lord, and he will grant to you the petitions of your heart.
5 Reveal your way to the Lord, and hope in him, and he will accomplish it.
6 And he will bring forth your justice like the light, and your judgment like the midday.
7 Be subject to the Lord and pray to him. Do not choose to compete with him who prospers in his way, with the man who does injustice.
8 Cease from wrath and leave behind rage. Do not choose to imitate the malicious.
9 For those who are malicious will be exterminated. But those who remain with the Lord, these will inherit the land.
10 Yet still a little while, and the sinner will not be. And you will search his place and find nothing.
11 But the meek shall inherit the earth, and they will delight in the multitude of peace.
12 The sinner will observe the just, and he will gnash his teeth over him.
13 But the Lord will laugh at him: for he knows in advance that his day will come.
14 The sinners have drawn the sword, they have bent their bow, so as to cast down the poor and the needy, so as to massacre the upright of heart.
15 Let their sword enter into their own hearts, and let their bow be broken.
16 A little is better to the just than the many riches of sinners.
17 For the arms of sinners will be crushed, but the Lord confirms the just.
18 The Lord knows the days of the immaculate, and their inheritance will be in eternity.
19 They will not be confounded in an evil time; and in days of famine, they will be satisfied:
20 for sinners will perish. Truly, the adversaries of the Lord, soon after they have been honored and exalted, will fade away, in the same way that smoke fades away.
21 The sinner will lend and not release, but the just one shows compassion and donates.
22 For those who bless him will inherit the earth, but those who curse him will perish.
23 The steps of a man will be directed by the Lord, and he will choose his way.
24 When he falls, he will not be harmed, because the Lord places his hand under him.
25 I have been young, and now I am old; and I have not seen the just forsaken, nor his offspring seeking bread.
26 He shows compassion and lends, all day long, and his offspring will be in blessing.
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.
