Psalm 112

Prosperity of One Who Fears the Lord.

112 [a]Praise [b]the Lord!
Blessed is a person who [c]fears the Lord,
Who greatly delights in His commandments.
His [d]descendants will be mighty [e]on the earth;
The generation of the upright will be blessed.
Wealth and riches are in his house,
And his righteousness endures forever.
Light shines in the darkness for the upright;
He is gracious, compassionate, and righteous.
It goes well for a person who is gracious and lends;
He will [f]maintain his cause in judgment.
For he will never be shaken;
The righteous will be [g]remembered forever.

He will not fear bad news;
His heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord.
His heart is firm, he will not fear,
[h]But will look with satisfaction on his enemies.
[i]He has given freely to the poor,
His righteousness endures forever;
His horn will be exalted in honor.

10 The wicked will see it and be [j]vexed,
He will gnash his teeth and melt away;
The desire of the wicked will perish.
