Psalm 112[a]


Blessed is the person who fears Yahweh
    and is happy to obey his commands.
        His descendants will grow strong on the earth.
        The family of a decent person will be blessed.
            Wealth and riches will be in his home.
            His righteousness continues forever.
Light will shine in the dark for a decent person.
    He is merciful, compassionate, and fair.

All goes well for the person who is generous and lends willingly.
    He earns an honest living.
        He will never fail.
        A righteous person will always be remembered.
            He is not afraid of bad news.
            His heart remains secure, full of confidence in Yahweh.
            His heart is steady, and he is not afraid.
                In the end he will look triumphantly at his enemies.
            He gives freely to poor people.
            His righteousness continues forever.
            His head is raised in honor.
10 The wicked person sees this and becomes angry.
    He angrily grits his teeth and disappears.
        The hope that wicked people have will vanish.
