Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
 

37:3 Trust in the LORD. Note the progression in Psalm 37:3-7 with respect to our growth in the Lord. (1) “Trust in the LORD” (Psalm 37:3); (2) “Delight thyself also in the LORD”( Psalm 37:4); (3) “Commit thy way unto the LORD” (Psalm 37:5); (4) “Rest in the LORD”( Psalm 37:7).

37:3 verily thou shalt be fed. The Hebrew word here for “verily” is also translated “truth.” For example, “all His works are done in truth” (Psalm 33:4). It is said here that God’s people will be fed not just with bread; more importantly, God shall feed them with His truth! The unbeliever, on the other hand, feeds on spiritual “ashes” and “wind” (Isaiah 44:20; Hosea 12:1), and even “wormwood” and “gall” (Jeremiah 23:15).
