the Author and Fountain of all goodness,
who governest the whole world by Thy marvelous wisdom,
suffer not that we be any wise moved with the prosperous success of the ungodly, but that we may the rather give ourselves wholly to Thy service,
and to the continual meditation of Thy holy law,
that in the end we may effectually find Thee to be our Saviour and Redeemer,
when Thou shalt come to judge the whole world,
through Thy well-beloved Son, Christ Jesus.
–”Psalm 37″ in Prayers on the Psalms From the Scottish Psalter of 1595 (Carlisle, PA: Banner of Truth, 2010), 65.
