1 Frer not thyself because of evil doers, nei
ther be thou envious against the work
ers · of in- | -iquity. 2 For they shall soon be cut down like the
grass, and / wither · as the green |
herb. 3 Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt
thou dwell in the land, and verily thou |
shalt · be fed. 4 Delight thyself also in the LORD, and he
shall give thee the de- | -sires of thine
-heart. 5 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also
i in him; and he shall | bring it to pass; 6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness
as the light, and thy | judg-:-ment | as •
the noon-day. q Cease from anger, and forsake wrath : fret
not thyself in any wise to do evil. 8 For evil doers shall be cut off : but those that
wait upon the LORD, | they · shall in-1
-herit the earth. 9 The steps of a good man are ordered by
the LORD: and he de- | -lighteth · in his
way. 10 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast
down: for the Lord up- / -holdeth him with his hand.

for ev- • -er- | -more. 14 For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh
not his saints; they are preserved forever: but the seed of the wicked · shall be •
cut off. 15 The righteous shall inherit the land, and
dwell there- / -in · for ever. 16 The mouth of the righteous speaketh wis

nor condemn him when he is judged. 20 Wait on the Lord and keep his way, and he
shall exalt thee to inherit the land: When the wicked are cut off, I thou — shalt
see it. 21 I have seen the wicked in great power, and
spreading himself like a green - | bay

25 But the salvation of the righteous is of the
LORD: he is their strength in the time ·
of trouble. 26 And the Lord shall help them, and deliver
them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, be- | -cause. they | trust · in him.
1 I SAID, I will take heed to my ways, that I
sin not with my tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked ·

5 Behold, thou hast made my days as an

state is alto- | -geth- ·-er | vanity. 6 Surely every man walketh in a vain shew :
surely they are disquieted in vain: he heapeth up riches, and knoweth not who •
shall | gath- . -er | them. And now, LORD, what wait I for? my hope
is in thee. 8 Deliver me from all my transgressions :
make me not the re-l-proach of the foolish.

PSALM XL. 1 I WAITED patiently for the LORD; and he in• clined unto me, and I heard · my cry. 2 He brought me up also out of an horrible pit,
out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and es- | -tab- • -lish'd | my —

4 Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD
his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor
such as | turn •a- | -side · to lies. 5 Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful
works which thou hast done, and thy
thoughts which are · to us-ward : 6 They cannot be reckoned up in order unto
thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are | more · than can be |
numbered. 7 Sacrifice and offering thou | didst . not de-1

and sin-offering hast · thou not · re-1
