Bible: Psalm 112

Psalm 112 1 

112:1 Praise the Lord!

How blessed is the one 2  who obeys 3  the Lord,

who takes great delight in keeping his commands. 4 

112:2 His descendants 5  will be powerful on the earth;

the godly 6  will be blessed.

112:3 His house contains wealth and riches;

his integrity endures. 7 

112:4 In the darkness a light 8  shines for the godly,

for each one who is merciful, compassionate, and just. 9 

112:5 It goes well for the one 10  who generously lends money,

and conducts his business honestly. 11 

112:6 For he will never be upended;

others will always remember one who is just. 12 

112:7 He does not fear bad news.

He 13  is confident; he trusts 14  in the Lord.

112:8 His resolve 15  is firm; he will not succumb to fear

before he looks in triumph on his enemies.

112:9 He generously gives 16  to the needy;

his integrity endures. 17 

He will be vindicated and honored. 18 

112:10 When the wicked 19  see this, they will worry;

they will grind their teeth in frustration 20  and melt away;

the desire of the wicked will perish. 21
