Grace and Holiness.
For I have kept the ways of the LORD, And have not wickedly departed from my God.
Wait for the LORD; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the LORD.
For evildoers will be cut off, But those who wait for the LORD, they will inherit the land.
But God will break you down forever; He will snatch you up and tear you away from your tent, And uproot you from the land of the living. Selah.
The righteous will see and fear, And will laugh at him, saying,
You will only look on with your eyes And see the recompense of the wicked.
When the wicked increase, transgression increases; But the righteous will see their fall.
