Bible: Psalm 37:35-40
37:35 I have seen ruthless evil men 1
growing in influence, like a green tree grows in its native soil. 2
37:36 But then one passes by, and suddenly they have disappeared! 3
I looked for them, but they could not be found.
37:37 Take note of the one who has integrity! Observe the godly! 4
For the one who promotes peace has a future. 5
37:38 Sinful rebels are totally destroyed; 6
evil men have no future. 7
37:39 But the
he protects them in times of trouble. 9
he rescues them from evil men and delivers them, 10
for they seek his protection.
