Psalm 112




1 Hallelujah! How happy is the person who fears the LORD, who truly delights in his commandments.
2 His descendants will be powerful in the land, a generation of the upright who will be blessed.
3 Wealth and riches are in his house, and his righteousness endures forever.
4 A light shines in the darkness for the upright, for the one who is gracious, compassionate, and just.
5 It is good for the person who lends generously, conducting his affairs with fairness.
6 He will never be shaken; the one who is just will always be remembered.
7 He need not fear a bad report, for his heart is unshaken, since he trusts in the LORD.
8 His heart is steadfast, he will not fear. In the end he will look in triumph over his enemy.
9 He gives generously to the poor; his righteousness endures forever; his horn is exalted in honor.
10 The wicked person sees this and flies into a rage; his teeth gnash and wear away. The desire of the wicked will amount to nothing.
