Psalm 112 King James Version

The Prosperity of Him Who Fears the LORD

112 1  Praise [1] ye the Lord. Blessed is the man that feareth the Lord, that delighteth greatly in his commandments. 2  His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed. 3  Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever. 4  Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous. 5  A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion. [2]

6  Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance. 7  He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord. 8  His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies. 9  He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour. 10  The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.
