Light dawns in the darkness (A)for the upright;
    he is gracious, merciful, and (B)righteous.
It is well with the man who (C)deals generously and lends;
    who conducts his affairs with justice.
For the righteous will (D)never be moved;
    (E)he will be remembered forever.
He is not (F)afraid of bad news;
    his (G)heart is firm, (H)trusting in the Lord.
His heart is steady;[a] he will not be afraid,
    until he looks in triumph on his adversaries.
He has (I)distributed freely; he has given to the poor;
    his righteousness endures forever;
    his (J)horn is exalted in honor.
