Psalm 112 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

112 1 He praiseth the felicity of them that fear God, 10 and condemneth the cursed state of the contemners of God.

Praise ye the Lord.

Blessed is the man that [a]feareth the Lord, and delighteth greatly in his commandments.

His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the righteous shall be blessed.

[b]Riches and treasures shall be in his house, and his righteousness endureth forever.

Unto the [c]righteous ariseth light in darkness: he is merciful and full of compassion and righteous.

A good man is merciful, and [d]lendeth, and will measure his affairs by judgment.

Surely he shall never be moved: but the righteous shall be had in everlasting remembrance.

He will not be afraid of evil tidings: for his heart is fixed, and believeth in the Lord.

His heart is established: therefore he will not fear, until he see his desire upon his enemies.

He hath [e]distributed and given to the poor: his righteousness remaineth forever: his [f]horn shall be exalted with glory.

10 The wicked shall see it, and be angry: he shall gnash with his teeth, and [g]consume away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.
