Psalm 37 Worksheet

This Psalm is both an elaborate chiasmus and ____________________ arranged.

The basic message of this Psalm is that things aren’t always as they ___________; we can trust God & seek Him even when it doesn’t pay short term dividends!

Many of the verses take on a Proverbs like feel to them, so we could classify Psalm 37 as a _________________ Psalm.

In verses 1-8 there are eight “do’s” that __________________ our attention from the four “do not’s.”

Isaiah 41:10, 13

Their inheritance will last _____________________ (18b)

God says, “the wicked never give back to the earth as much as they _________!”
