35 I saw a wicked and cruel man
    who looked strong like a healthy tree in good soil.
36 But he died and was gone;
    I looked for him, but he couldn’t be found.

37 Think of the innocent person,
    and watch the honest one.
The man who has peace
    will have children to live after him.

    though I looked for him, he could not be found.(B)

37 Consider the blameless,(C) observe the upright;(D)
    a future awaits those who seek peace.[a](E)
