1 Praise ye LORD. Blessed is the man who fears LORD, who delights greatly in his commandments.
2 His seed shall be mighty upon earth. The generation of the upright shall be blessed. 3 Wealth and riches are in his house, and his righteousness endures forever. 4 To the upright there arises light in the darkness. [He is] gracious, and merciful, and righteous. 5 It is well with the man who deals graciously and lends. He shall maintain his cause in judgment, 6 for he shall never be moved. A righteous man shall be had in everlasting remembrance. 7 He shall not be afraid of evil tidings. His heart is fixed, trusting in LORD. 8 His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, [even] until he looks over his adversaries. 9 He has scattered, he has given to the poor. His righteousness endures forever. His horn shall be exalted with honor.
