The Future

Excerpt from Psalm 37:27-40 Tree of Life Version.

Turn from evil and do good, so you may live forever.
For ADONAI loves justice and does not abandon His godly ones.
They will be preserved forever,
But the seed of the wicked will be cut off.

The righteous will inherit the land and dwell in it forever.
The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom
And his tongue speaks justice.

The Torah of his God is in his heart.
His steps do not slip.
The wicked lies in wait for the righteous, seeking to slay him.
But ADONAI will not leave him in his hand,
Or let him be condemned when judged.

Wait for ADONAI and keep His way,
And He will exalt you to inherit the land.

When the wicked are cut off, you will see it.
I have seen a wicked, ruthless man flourishing like a leafy tree in native soil.
But once he passed by, he was no more.
Though I looked for him, he could not be found.

Notice the man of integrity and watch the upright—for the man of shalom has a future.

But transgressors will be destroyed altogether.
The future of the wicked will be cut off.

Yet the salvation of the righteous is from ADONAI.
He is their stronghold in time of trouble.
ADONAI helps them and delivers them.
He rescues them from the wicked and saves them—
Because they take refuge in Him.
