The days of the blameless are known to the Lord
And their inheritance will endure for ever
In times of disaster they will not wither
In days of famine they will enjoy plenty.
I was young and now I am old
Yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken
They are always generous and lend freely
Their children will be blessed.
If the Lord delights in you
He will make the righteous steps firm
Though he stumble, he will not fall
For the Lord upholds him with his hand.
The righteous will be protected for ever
But the offspring of the wicked will be cut off
The righteous will inherit the land
And dwell in it for ever.
The mouth of the righteous man utters wisdom
And his tongue speaks what is just
The law of his God is in his heart
His feet do not slip.
The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lord
The Lord helps them and delivers them
He delivers them from the wicked and saves them
Because they take refuge in the Lord.
Turn from evil and do good
Then you will dwell in the land for ever
For the Lord loves the just
And will not forsake His righteous ones.
