Psalm 37:1-11, 39-40 - He Will Not Forsake His Saints

[1] Fret not yourself because of evildoers;
  be not envious of wrongdoers!
[2] For they will soon fade like the grass
  and wither like the green herb.

[3] Trust in the LORD, and do good;
  dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness.
[4] Delight yourself in the LORD,
  and he will give you the desires of your heart.

[5] Commit your way to the LORD;
  trust in him, and he will act.
[6] He will bring forth your righteousness as the light,
  and your justice as the noonday.

[7] Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him;
  fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way,
  over the man who carries out evil devices!

[8] Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath!
  Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil.
[9] For the evildoers shall be cut off,
  but those who wait for the LORD shall inherit the land.

[10] In just a little while, the wicked will be no more;
  though you look carefully at his place, he will not be there.
[11] But the meek shall inherit the land
  and delight themselves in abundant peace. 

[39] The salvation of the righteous is from the LORD;
  he is their stronghold in the time of trouble.
[40] The LORD helps them and delivers them;
  he delivers them from the wicked and saves them,
  because they take refuge in him.

(Psalm 37:1-11, 39-40 ESV)
