12  There are the workers of iniquity fallen: they are cast down, and shall not be able to rise.
A Psalm of David.
1 Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.

31  The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.*** steps: or, goings
32  The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him.
33  The LORD will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged.
 
34  Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.
35  I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.††† a green…: or, a green tree that groweth in his own soil
36  Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.
37  Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace.
38  But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off.
39  But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble.
40  And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.
A Psalm of David, to bring to remembrance.
