Psalm 37: 1-8 Holman Christian Standard Bible
1 Do not be agitated by evildoers; do not envy those who do wrong.
2 For they wither quickly like grass and wilt like tender green plants.
3 Trust in the LORD and do what is good; dwell in the land and live securely.
4 Take delight in the LORD, and He will give you your heart’s desires.
5 Commit your way to the LORD; trust in Him, and He will act,
6 making your righteousness shine like the dawn, your justice like the noonday.
7 Be silent before the LORD and wait expectantly for Him; do not be agitated by one who
prospers in his way, by the man who carries out evil plans.
8 Refrain from anger and give up [your] rage; do not be agitated—it can only bring harm.
David’s blueprint for personal peace, wisdom, and tranquility:
We are “to trust in the Lord and do good.”
We are “to delight in the Lord.”
We are “to commit our way to the Lord.”
We are “to be silent before the Lord.”
We are “to refrain from anger.”
I am personally grateful for the way God is teaching me through this Psalm. May we all be found faithful in trusting Jesus for our security.
With a Grateful Heart,
