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.
