Psalm 112 Revised Standard Version

The Prosperity of Him Who Fears the LORD

112 1  Praise the Lord. Blessed is the man who fears the Lord, who greatly delights in his commandments! 2  His descendants will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed. 3  Wealth and riches are in his house; and his righteousness endures for ever. 4  Light rises in the darkness for the upright; the Lord is gracious, merciful, and righteous. 5  It is well with the man who deals generously and lends, who conducts his affairs with justice.

6  For the righteous will never be moved; he will be remembered for ever. 7  He is not afraid of evil tidings; his heart is firm, trusting in the Lord. 8  His heart is steady, he will not be afraid, until he sees his desire on his adversaries. 9  He has distributed freely, he has given to the poor; his righteousness endures for ever; his horn is exalted in honor. 10  The wicked man sees it and is angry; he gnashes his teeth and melts away; the desire of the wicked man comes to nought.
