Psalm 112




1 Hallelujah! Happy is the man who fears the Lord, taking great delight in His commandments.
2 His descendants will be powerful in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed.
3 Wealth and riches are in his house, and his righteousness endures forever.
4 Light shines in the darkness for the upright. He is gracious, compassionate, and righteous.
5 Good will come to a man who lends generously and conducts his business fairly.
6 He will never be shaken. The righteous will be remembered forever.
7 He will not fear bad news; his heart is confident, trusting in the Lord.
8 His heart is assured; he will not fear. In the end he will look in triumph on his foes.
9 He distributes freely to the poor; his righteousness endures forever. His horn will be exalted in honor.
10 The wicked man will see [it] and be angry; he will gnash his teeth in despair. The desire of the wicked will come to nothing.
