February 6: Psalm 37; Exodus 36:8-38

Do not fret because of evildoers,
Be not envious toward doers of unrighteousness.
For they will wither quickly like the grass
And fade like the green herb.

Trust in Yahweh and do good;
Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness.
Delight yourself in Yahweh;
And He will give you the desires of your heart.

Commit your way to Yahweh,
Trust in Him, and He will do it.
He will bring forth your righteousness as the light
And your judgment as the noonday.

Be still in Yahweh and wait patiently for Him;
Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way,
Because of the man who carries out schemes of wickedness.

Cease from anger and forsake wrath;
Do not fret; it leads only to evildoing.
For evildoers will be cut off,
But those who hope for Yahweh, they will inherit the land.

Yet a little while and the wicked man will be no more;
You will look carefully at his place, and he will not be there.
But the lowly will inherit the land
And will delight themselves in abundant peace.

But the salvation of the righteous is from Yahweh;
He is their strength in time of distress.
Yahweh helps them and protects them;
He protects them from the wicked and saves them,
Because they take refuge in Him.
