From Psalm 37

I read this longish psalm today and thought I’d share up the verses I like best!! Then back to my New Atheism paper… let it be known that my other means of procrastination have included doing almost my entire biology presentation (it’s due the night after my paper), finding a new radio station to listen to, watching this unbelievable video, cleaning out my closet, eating crackers and cream cheese, mounting a picture on the wall, changing my bedding, flipping my calendars, making this list… everything but a load of laundry!! Maybe for my next break… maybe.
Anyways – Psalm 37

1Do not be preoccupied with evildoers.
Do not envy those who do wicked things.
2They will quickly dry up like grass
and wither away like green plants.
3Trust the Lord, and do good things.
Live in the land, and practice being faithful.
4Be happy with the Lord,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.
5Entrust your ways to the Lord.
Trust him, and he will act on your behalf.
6He will make your righteousness shine like a light,
your just cause like the noonday sun.
7Surrender yourself to the Lord, and wait patiently for him.
Do not be preoccupied with an evildoer who succeeds in his way
when he carries out his schemes.
8Let go of anger, and leave rage behind.
Do not fret.
It only leads to evil.

23A person’s steps are directed by the Lord,
and the Lord delights in his way.
24When he falls, he will not be thrown down headfirst
because the Lord holds on to his hand.

30The mouth of the righteous person reflects on wisdom.
His tongue speaks what is fair.
31The teachings of his God are in his heart.
His feet do not slip.
32The wicked person watches the righteous person
and seeks to kill him.
33But the Lord will not abandon him to the wicked person’s power
or condemn him when he is brought to trial.

39The victory for righteous people comes from the Lord.
He is their fortress in times of trouble.
40The Lord helps them and rescues them.
He rescues them from wicked people.
He saves them because they have taken refuge in him.
