Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 37:21-30. In Psalm 37:21-30 David says, the wicked borrow, but don’t repay, but the righteous give of their resources. The righteous are blessed by God and will inherit the earth, but the wicked will be cut off.
The steps of a good man are led by the LORD, and he delights in his way. Even if he falls, he won’t be cast down, because the LORD holds him up. David exclaims he has never seen the righteous forsaken or begging for bread.
Righteous people will take part of what they have and share with those who are less fortunate. They take joy in being able to help feed the poor and needy. Wicked people are usually more selfish and self-centered. Their only concern is for themselves. They don’t care if they hurt other people.
The righteous man is generous and his seed is blessed by God. He exhorts us to do good and depart from evil. The LORD won’t forsake His saints. He tells us the righteous man speaks of wisdom and judgment.
Daily Bible Reading:
21 The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth.
22 For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and they that be cursed of him shall be cut off.
23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.
24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand.
25 I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
26 He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.
27 Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.
28 For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.
29 The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.
30 The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment.

Part 2 Chapters 31-60
by Deborah H. Bateman
About the book:
The Book of Psalms: Part 2 Chapters 31-60 by Deborah H. Bateman is 27th book in the Daily Bible Reading Series. The book of Psalms contains 150 chapters. Deborah divided The Book of Psalms into five books to make it easier to read and study. Each book will contain approximately thirty chapters from the book of Psalms.
Psalm 119 will not be included in The Book of Psalms since Deborah has already published a book about it called: Psalm 119: Thy Word is a Lamp unto My Feet. The book of Psalms is one of Deborah’s favorite books of the Bible. It is a great book to read if you’re ever feeling down or need to renew your relationship with Christ. King David went through a lot of tough times in his lifetime, but he loved God and trusted God to protect him from his enemies.
The book of Psalms was written by various people. About half of it was attributed to King David, whether they were written by David or for David is questioned by some biblical scholars. Some of the Psalms were written by Asaph and some say they were written for the sons of Korah and even Moses and Solomon were writers of the Psalms. The Psalms consists of poetry that was primarily meant to be used as songs of praise to the Lord.
The Book of Psalms: Part 2 Chapters 31-60 contains thirty-five Daily Bible Reading Lessons. Each lesson contains a brief commentary by the author, the Daily Bible Reading Scriptures, a few questions for contemplation or discussion, and a prayer of the day. It is a great Bible study for individuals or group studies.
