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.


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


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


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


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



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.


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


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


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