1 {Praise the Everlasting} Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD, and hath great delight in his commandments.
2 His seed shall be mighty upon earth; the generation of the faithful shall be blessed. 3 Riches and plenteousness shall be in his house, and his righteousness endureth forever. 4 Unto the godly there ariseth up light in the darkness: he is merciful, loving and righteous. 5 A good man is merciful, and lendeth gladly, and pondereth his words with discretion. 6 For he shall never be moved, and the righteous shall be had in an everlasting remembrance. 7 He will not be afraid of any evil tidings, for his heart standeth fast, and believeth in the LORD. 8 His heart is stablished, and will not shrink, until he sees his desire upon his enemies. 9 He hath dispersed abroad, and given to the poor, his righteousness remaineth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honor.
10 The ungodly shall see it, and it shall grieve him; he shall gnash with his teeth, and consume away, and the desire of the ungodly shall perish.
