1 Praise Jehovah! Blessed is the man who fears Jehovah, who delights greatly in His Commandments.
2 His seed shall be mighty on earth; the generation of the upright shall be blessed. 3 Wealth and riches shall be in his house, and his righteousness stands forever. 4 To the upright there arises light in the darkness; he is gracious and full of pity and righteousness. 5 A good man shows favor, and lends; he will guide his business with fairness. 6 Surely he shall not be moved forever; the righteous shall be remembered forever. 7 He shall not be afraid of bad news; his heart is fixed, trusting in Jehovah. 8 His heart is sure; he shall not be afraid though he sees his oppressors. 9 He has scattered abroad; he has given to the poor; his righteousness endures forever; his horn shall be lifted up with honor.
