|Delight yourself in the LORD |
and he will give you the desires of your heart.
|Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.|
|Delight yourself in the LORD; |
And He will give you the desires of your heart.
Find all your joy and pleasure in His will. Make Him your delight, and your desires will be in His will. Living to please the Lord sets you free from fretting about what men are doing.

Did you know?
Psalm 37 is one of several alphabetical psalms (Ps. 9 and 10 together; 25; 34; 37; 111; 112; 119; 145). In Hebrew each succeeding verse begins with the next letter of the alphabet. The Hebrew alphabet has 22 letters, so these psalms should have 22 verses. In Psalm 37 every other He brew line begins alphabetically, but there aren't 44 verses because some of the English verses are so long they break the pattern.
