Psalm 37 – Endurance & Perils of War

Do not be worried by the evils of the world. If you live by the sword you will die by the sword.

37:8

Put an end to your wrath and be no longer bitter; do not give way to angry feeling which is a cause of sin.

37:9

For the evil-doers will be cut off: but those who have faith in the Lord will have the earth for their heritage.

37:10

For in a short time the evil-doer will be gone: you will go searching for his place, and it will not be there.

37:11

But the gentle will have the earth for their heritage; they will take their delight in peace without measure.

 

37:14

The evil-doers have taken out their swords, their bows are bent; for crushing the poor, and to put to death those who are upright in their ways.

37:15

But their swords will be turned into their hearts, and their bows will be broken.

37:16

The little which the good man has is better than the wealth of evil-doers.

37:17

For the arms of the evil-doers will be broken: but the Lord is the support of the good.
