Righteousness Being Blessed

Refrain from anger and give up your rage;
do not be agitated—it can only bring harm.
For evildoers will be destroyed,
but those who put their hope in the Lord
will inherit the land.
A little while, and the wicked will be no more;
though you look for him, he will not be there.
But the humble will inherit the land
and will enjoy abundant prosperity.
The wicked schemes against the righteous
and gnashes his teeth at him.
The Lord laughs at him
because He sees that his day is coming.
The wicked have drawn the sword and strung thee bow
to bring down the afflicted and needy
and to slaughter those whose way is upright.
Their swords will enter their own hearts,
and their bows will be broken.
(Psalm 37:8-15 Holman Christian Standard Bible ©®)

Blessed are the gentle,
because they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger
and thirst for righteousness,
because they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful,
because they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
because they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
because they will be called sons of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness,
because the kingdom of heaven is theirs.
