Bible: Psalm 112
Psalm 112 1
112:1 Praise the
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.
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
