  2. 2. James Eugene Barbush Version Dated April 2, 2013JamesEBarbush@GMail.com Cell: 717-514-5549 Psalm 37 The Lord….Will Not….Forsake….His Saints A Psalm of David English Standard Version (ESV)Psalm 37, a Psalm of David. A friend of mine suggested that I read Psalm 37 because itreminded him of a discussion we had about Matthew 6. In Matthew 6, we are told that thingswill happen WHEN we give to the needy, WHEN we fast, WHEN we pray, and WHEN weforgive. It says that things should be done in a certain way WHEN we do those things. It saysthat things will happen as a result of doing those things.At my friend’s suggestion, I read Psalm 37. When I read the scripture verses, I often noticesome patters in the writings. In Psalm 37, I found some patterns. They are these. Psalm 37 talksabout 3 types of things:1. Psalm 37 talks about The Righteous. ......... It mentions things that The Righteous must do.2. Psalm 37 talks about The Lord. ................. It mentions things that The Lord promises to do for The Righteous.3. Psalm 37 talks about The Wicked. ............. It mentions things that The Wicked do and what happens to The Wicked.VERSES AS WRITTEN: On pages 2, 3, and 4 of this document is presented Psalm 37, verses1 to 40. On those pages, each verse is shaded according to the following legend: LEGEND: The Righteous What The Righteous Must Do. The Lord What The Lord Promises To Us, The Righteous. The Wicked What The Wicked Do and What Happens To The Wicked.VERSES SORTED: On pages 5, 6, and 7 of this document is presented Psalm 37, but with theverses sort according to the same legend above. The Righteous All verses related to The Righteous are presented on Page 5. The Lord All verses related to The Lord’s Promises are presented on Page 6. The Wicked All verses related to The Wicked are presented on Page 7.Nothing else need be said at this time. Just read the verses and see what The Righteous must doto win the promises of The Lord, and what The Wicked will do and what the fate of The Wickedis.

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; The wicked will not be there. though you look carefully at The wicked’s place,11 But the meek shall inherit the land and delight themselves in abundant peace.
