Seven Important Words

Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.

For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.

Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.

Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.

Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.

Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.

For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the earth.

Psalms 37 (KJV)

In Newberry’s “Englishman’s Bible” there are seven words in these verses printed in bold letters, indicating that they are emphasized in the Hebrew.  Those words stand out as stepping stones into the blessed life of faith and fullness.  The words are:
FRET NOT.  :1 “Fret not thyself because of evil doers”  Be not envious at the foolish, when you see the prosperity of the wicked. (Psalms 73:3). Be content with such things as ye have. Knowing that “all things work together for good to them that love God”.
TRUST.  :3 “Trust in the Lord, and do good.”  To put your confidence in the Lord. Believing He will work things out for our good. Continue to obey His word while we wait patiently. God will pay off, “Verily thou shalt be fed.”
DELIGHT.  :4 “Delight thyself also in the Lord, and He shall give thee the desires of thing heart.”  We may well question our trust, if it does not lead to delight in the Lord. We cannot delight in Him, unless we believe that He is the chief and perfect good of the soul.
COMMIT. :5 “Commit thy way unto the Lord ….. and He shall bring it to pass.”  Where there is perfect trust and delight in the Lord, there will surely be a perfect committal of ourselves, and all our ways and purposes unto Him. The life that is wholly committed will be free of all care.
REST.  :7  “Rest in the Lord.”  This rest is the result of a whole-hearted committal. In this quietness and confidence ye shall find your strength rest in the Lord for the battle is not your’s.
CEASE.  :8  “Cease from anger and forsake wrath.”  If your trust is in the Lord, cease or stop from self and from allowing anger taking over. Wrath and anger are the works of the flesh. “He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.” Prov. 25:28
WAIT.  :9  “Wait upon the Lord”  After having committed all to Him, and ceased from our will and way there is a danger of growing weary in well doing. Wait, “Ye have need of patience, that after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.” Heb. 10:36. They that wait upon the Lord shall have such manifestation of Himself as shall renew their strength.
