112 Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!) Blessed [fortunate, prosperous, and favored by God] is the man who fears the Lord [with awe-inspired reverence and worships Him with obedience], Who delights greatly in His commandments. 2 His descendants will be mighty on earth; The generation of the upright will be blessed. 3 Wealth and riches are in his house, And his righteousness endures forever. 4 Light arises in the darkness for the upright; He is gracious and compassionate and righteous (upright—in right standing with God). 5 It is well with the man who is gracious and lends; He conducts his affairs with justice. 6 He will never be shaken; The righteous will be remembered forever.
7 He will not fear bad news; His heart is steadfast, trusting [confidently relying on and believing] in the Lord. 8 His heart is upheld, he will not fear While he looks [with satisfaction] on his adversaries. 9 He has given freely to the poor; His righteousness endures forever; His horn will be exalted in honor.
10 The wicked will see it and be angered, He will gnash his teeth and melt away [in despair and death]; The desire of the wicked will perish and come to nothing.
