23Our steps are made firm by the Lord, when he delights in our way;

24though we stumble, we shall not fall headlong, for the Lord holds us by the hand.

25I have been young, and now am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread.

26They are ever giving liberally and lending, and their children become a blessing.

27Depart from evil, and do good; so you shall abide forever.

28For the Lord loves justice; he will not forsake his faithful ones. The righteous shall be kept safe forever, but the children of the wicked shall be cut off.

29The righteous shall inherit the land, and live in it forever.

30The mouths of the righteous utter wisdom, and their tongues speak justice.

31The law of their God is in their hearts; their steps do not slip.

32The wicked watch for the righteous, and seek to kill them.

33The Lord will not abandon them to their power, or let them be condemned when they are brought to trial.

34Wait for the Lord, and keep to his way, and he will exalt you to inherit the land; you will look on the destruction of the wicked.

35I have seen the wicked oppressing, and towering like a cedar of Lebanon.

36Again I passed by, and they were no more; though I sought them, they could not be found.

37Mark the blameless, and behold the upright, for there is posterity for the peaceable.

38But transgressors shall be altogether destroyed; the posterity of the wicked shall be cut off.

39The salvation of the righteous is from the Lord; he is their refuge in the time of trouble.

40The Lord helps them and rescues them; he rescues them from the wicked, and saves them, because they take refuge in him.
