shall inherit the land, but those cursed by him shall be cut off. (Ps 37:2; Ps 37:9)23 The steps of a man are established by the Lord, when he delights in his way; (1Sa 2:9; Ps 25:12; Ps 40:2; Ps 119:5)24 though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong, for the Lord upholds his hand. (Ps 37:17; Pr 24:16; Mic 7:8; 2Co 4:9)25 I have been young, and now am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken or his children begging for bread. (Job 15:23; Ps 109:10)26 He is ever lending generously, and his children become a blessing. (De 15:8; De 15:10; Ps 112:5; Ps 112:9; Mt 5:42; Lu 6:35)27 Turn away from evil and do good; so shall you dwell forever. (Ps 34:14; Ps 102:28)28 For the Lord loves justice; he will not forsake his saints. They are preserved forever, but the children of the wicked shall be cut off. (Ps 11:7; Ps 16:10; Ps 21:10; Ps 37:2; Ps 37:9; Pr 2:22; Isa 14:20)29 The righteous shall inherit the land and dwell upon it forever. (Ps 37:27)30 The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom, and his tongue speaks justice.31 The law of his God is in his heart; his steps do not slip. (De 6:6; Ps 40:8; Ps 73:2; Ps 119:11; Isa 51:7; Jer 31:33; Ro 7:22)32 The wicked watches for the righteous and seeks to put him to death. (Ps 10:8)33 The Lord will not abandon him to his power or let him be condemned when he is brought to trial. (Ps 109:31; 2Pe 2:9)34 Wait for the Lord and keep his way, and he will exalt you to inherit the land; you will look on when the wicked are cut off. (Ps 27:14; Ps 37:9; Ps 52:5; Ps 91:8)35 I have seen a wicked, ruthless man, spreading himself like a green laurel tree.
