Prosperity of the One Who Fears the Lord .

(a)Praise (b)the Lord!
How (A)blessed is the man who (c)fears the Lord,
Who greatly (B)delights in His commandments.
His (d)(C)descendants will be mighty (e)on earth;
The generation of the (D)upright will be blessed.
(E)Wealth and riches are in his house,
And his righteousness endures forever.
Light arises in the darkness (F)for the upright;
He is (G)gracious and compassionate and righteous.
It is well with the man who (H)is gracious and lends;
He will (f)maintain his cause in judgment.
For he will (I)never be shaken;
The (J)righteous will be (g)remembered forever.
He will not fear (K)evil tidings;
His (L)heart is steadfast, (M)trusting in the Lord.
His (N)heart is upheld, he (O)will not fear,
Until he (P)looks with satisfaction on his adversaries.
(h)He (Q)has given freely to the poor,
His righteousness endures forever;
His (R)horn will be exalted in honor.
The (S)wicked will see it and be (i)vexed,
He will (T)gnash his teeth and (U)melt away;
The (V)desire of the wicked will perish.
