Psalm 112 (111)
10Praise for the just.
1 Blessed is the one who fears the Lord,
1 who greatly delights in his commands.
2 His children will be powerful on earth;
2 the upright’s offspring will be blessed.
3 Wealth and riches are for his family,
3 there his integrity will remain.
4 He is for the righteous a light in darkness,
4 he is kind, merciful and upright.
5 It will be well with him who lends freely,
5 who leads a life of justice and honesty.
6 For the righteous will never be moved;
6 he will be remembered and loved forever.
7 He has no fear of evil news,
7 for his heart is firm, trusting in the Lord.
8 His heart is confident, he needs not fear,
8 he shall prevail over his foes at the end.
9 He gives generously to the poor,
9 his merits will last forever
9 and his head will be raised in honor.
10 The wicked will see this and be furious:
10 they will gnash their teeth in seething envy.
10 The desire of the wicked will fail.
