Do not worry about the evildoers (Ps 37:1-37:2)

“A psalm of David

Alep

Do not fret because of the wicked!

Do not be envious of wrongdoers!

They will soon fade like the grass.

They will wither like the green herbs.”

Once again, Psalm 37 is a long acrostic psalm with the letters of the Hebrew alphabet starting each verse, like Psalms 9, 10, 25, and 34. Thus it is a little incoherent as a simple wisdom psalm of David. The evildoers seem to be doing okay. We should not fret, worry, or be envious about wicked evildoers. They would soon fade like the grass and wither up like the green herbs.
