Psalm 37, of David. With two lines dedicated to each letter of the Hebrew alphabet, this psalm is one of the longer acrostics in the book of Psalms. David wrote it late in life (“ I have been young, and now am old;

Nor his descendants begging bread.“) It is full of promises and praise, and was intended for memorization.
