A Day In Thy Courts

Psalm 84:10-12 KJV

For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness. 

[11] For the Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly. 

[12] O Lord of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.



Psalm 1:1-6 KJV

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. 

[2] But his delight is in the law of the Lord ; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. 

[3] And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. 

[4] The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. 

[5] Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. 

[6] For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

The Heritage of the Righteous and the Calamity of the Wicked 
Psalm 37:1-40 NKJV

Do not fret because of evildoers, Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity. 

[2] For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, And wither as the green herb. 

[3] Trust in the LORD, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. 

[4] Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. 

[5] Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass. 

[6] He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, And your justice as the noonday. 

[7] Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass. 

[8] Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; Do not fret-it only causes harm. 

[9] For evildoers shall be cut off; But those who wait on the LORD, They shall inherit the earth. 

[10] For yet a little while and the wicked shall be no more; Indeed, you will look carefully for his place, But it shall be no more. 

[11] But the meek shall inherit the earth, And shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace. 

[12] The wicked plots against the just, And gnashes at him with his teeth. 

[13] The Lord laughs at him, For He sees that his day is coming. 

[14] The wicked have drawn the sword And have bent their bow, To cast down the poor and needy, To slay those who are of upright conduct. 

[15] Their sword shall enter their own heart, And their bows shall be broken. 

[16] A little that a righteous man has Is better than the riches of many wicked. 

[17] For the arms of the wicked shall be broken, But the LORD upholds the righteous. 

[18] The LORD knows the days of the upright, And their inheritance shall be forever. 

[19] They shall not be ashamed in the evil time, And in the days of famine they shall be satisfied. 

[20] But the wicked shall perish; And the enemies of the LORD, Like the splendor of the meadows, shall vanish. Into smoke they shall vanish away. 

[21] The wicked borrows and does not repay, But the righteous shows mercy and gives. 

[22] For those blessed by Him shall inherit the earth, But those cursed by Him shall be cut off. 

[23] The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD, And He delights in his way. 

[24] Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; For the LORD upholds him with His hand. 

[25] I have been young, and now am old; Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, Nor his descendants begging bread. 

[26] He is ever merciful, and lends; And his descendants are blessed. 

[27] Depart from evil, and do good; And dwell forevermore. 

[28] For the LORD loves justice, And does not forsake His saints; They are preserved forever, But the descendants of the wicked shall be cut off. 

[29] The righteous shall inherit the land, And dwell in it forever. 

[30] The mouth of the righteous speaks wisdom, And his tongue talks of justice. 

[31] The law of his God is in his heart; None of his steps shall slide. 

[32] The wicked watches the righteous, And seeks to slay him. 

[33] The LORD will not leave him in his hand, Nor condemn him when he is judged. 

[34] Wait on the LORD, And keep His way, And He shall exalt you to inherit the land; When the wicked are cut off, you shall see it. 

[35] I have seen the wicked in great power, And spreading himself like a native green tree. 

[36] Yet he passed away, and behold, he was no more; Indeed I sought him, but he could not be found. 

[37] Mark the blameless man, and observe the upright; For the future of that man is peace. 

[38] But the transgressors shall be destroyed together; The future of the wicked shall be cut off. 

[39] But the salvation of the righteous is from the LORD; He is their strength in the time of trouble. 

[40] And the LORD shall help them and deliver them; He shall deliver them from the wicked, And save them, Because they trust in Him.
