The righteous man will be glad in the Lord and will take refuge in Him;
And all the upright in heart will glory.
“The righteous see and are glad,
And the innocent mock them,
For the choir director. A Psalm of David.
In the Lord I take refuge;
How can you say to my soul, “Flee as a bird to your mountain;
Guard my soul and deliver me;
Do not let me be ashamed, for I take refuge in You.
Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, you righteous ones;
And shout for joy, all you who are upright in heart.
He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God;
Many will see and fear
And will trust in the Lord.
The righteous will rejoice when he sees the vengeance;
He will wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
As wax melts before the fire,
So let the wicked perish before God.
Light is sown like seed for the righteous
And gladness for the upright in heart.
His descendants will be mighty on earth;
The generation of the upright will be blessed.
But by His doing you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption,
But may it never be that I would boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice!
