Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
American Standard Version
Delight thyself also in Jehovah; And he will give thee the desires of thy heart.
Young's Literal Translation
And delight thyself on Jehovah, And He giveth to thee the petitions of thy heart.
Psalm 37:4 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Delight thyself also in the Lord - Expect all thy happiness from him, and seek it in him.
The desires of thine heart - משאלות mishaloth, the petitions. The godly man never indulges a desire which he cannot form into a prayer to God.
