For it is You who blesses the righteous man, O Lord,
You surround him with favor as with a shield.
The Lord will give strength to His people;
The Lord will bless His people with peace.
Many are the sorrows of the wicked,
But he who trusts in the Lord, lovingkindness shall surround him.
He will bless those who fear the Lord,
The small together with the great.
How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,
Nor stand in the path of sinners,
Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!
But You, O Lord, are a shield about me,
My glory, and the One who lifts my head.
Salvation belongs to the Lord;
Your blessing be upon Your people! Selah.
You are my hiding place; You preserve me from trouble;
You surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah.
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.
Praise the Lord!
How blessed is the man who fears the Lord,
Who greatly delights in His commandments.
