Mission of St. Clare logo Psalm 37:19-42 Noli aemulari

They shall not be confounded in the perilous time;
and in the days of dearth they shall have enough

As for the ungodly, they shall perish, and the enemies of the Lord shall consume as the fat of lambs;
yea, even as the smoke shall they consume away

The ungodly borroweth, and payeth not again;
but the righteous is merciful and liberal

Such as are blessed of God shall possess the land;
and they that are cursed of him shall be rooted out

The Lord ordereth a good man’s going, and maketh his way acceptable to himself

Though he fall, he shall not be cast away;
for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand

I have been young, and now am old;
and yet saw I never the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging their bread

The righteous is ever merciful, and lendeth, and his seed is blessed

Flee from evil, and do the thing that is good, and dwell for evermore

For the Lord loveth the thing that is right;
he forsaketh not his that be godly, but they are preserved for ever

The unrighteous shall be punished;
as for the seed of the ungodly, it shall be rooted out

The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever

The mouth of the righteous is exercised in wisdom, and his tongue will be talking of judgement

The law of his God is in his heart, and his goings shall not slide

The ungodly watcheth the righteous, and seeketh occasion to slay him

The Lord will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged

Hope thou in the Lord, and keep his way, and he shall promote thee, that thou shalt possess the land;
when the ungodly shall perish, thou shalt see it

I myself have seen the ungodly in great power, and flourishing like a green bay-tree

I went by, and lo, he was gone;
I sought him, but his place could nowhere be found

Keep innocency, and take heed unto the thing that is right;
for that shall bring a man peace at the last

As for the transgressors, they shall perish together;
and the end of the ungodly is, they shall be rooted out at the last

But the salvation of the righteous cometh of the Lord, who is also their strength in the time of trouble

And the Lord shall stand by them, and save them;
he shall deliver them from the ungodly, and shall save them, because they put their trust in him
