How blessed is the man who has made the Lord his trust,
And has not turned to the proud, nor to those who lapse into falsehood.
O taste and see that the Lord is good;
How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!
But as for those who turn aside to their crooked ways,
The Lord will lead them away with the doers of iniquity.
Peace be upon Israel.
Do homage to the Son, that He not become angry, and you perish in the way,
For His wrath may soon be kindled.
How blessed are all who take refuge in Him!
In whose eyes a reprobate is despised,
But who honors those who fear the Lord;
He swears to his own hurt and does not change;
For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
The Lord gives grace and glory;
No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly.
I will set no worthless thing before my eyes;
I hate the work of those who fall away;
It shall not fasten its grip on me.
It is better to take refuge in the Lord
Than to trust in man.
You rebuke the arrogant, the cursed,
Who wander from Your commandments.
They do not know, nor do they understand, for He has smeared over their eyes so that they cannot see and their hearts so that they cannot comprehend.
Every man is stupid, devoid of knowledge;
Every goldsmith is put to shame by his idols;
For his molten images are deceitful,
And there is no breath in them.
“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord
And whose trust is the Lord.
“Those who regard vain idols
Forsake their faithfulness,
Again Isaiah says,
“There shall come the root of Jesse,
And He who arises to rule over the Gentiles,
In Him shall the Gentiles hope.”
that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders,
