The wicked stalks the righteous person, seeking to kill him, but the LORD will not let him fall into his hands. He will not be condemned when he is put on trial. Wait on the LORD, Keep faithful to his way, and he will exalt you to possess the land. You will see the wicked cut off. I once observed a wicked and oppressive person, flourishing like a green tree in native soil. But then he passed away; in fact, he simply was not there. When I looked for him, he could not be found.
