New International Version
2 Their children(E) will be mighty in the land;
the generation of the upright will be blessed.
3 Wealth and riches(F) are in their houses,
and their righteousness endures(G) forever.
4 Even in darkness light dawns(H) for the upright,
for those who are gracious and compassionate and righteous.(I)
5 Good will come to those who are generous and lend freely,(J)
who conduct their affairs with justice.
6 Surely the righteous will never be shaken;(K)
they will be remembered(L) forever.
7 They will have no fear of bad news;
their hearts are steadfast,(M) trusting in the Lord.(N)
8 Their hearts are secure, they will have no fear;(O)
in the end they will look in triumph on their foes.(P)
9 They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor,(Q)
their righteousness endures(R) forever;
their horn[c] will be lifted(S) high in honor.
Praise the Lord, you his servants;(Y)
praise the name of the Lord.
2 Let the name of the Lord be praised,(Z)
both now and forevermore.(AA)
3 From the rising of the sun(AB) to the place where it sets,
the name of the Lord is to be praised.
4 The Lord is exalted(AC) over all the nations,
his glory above the heavens.(AD)
5 Who is like the Lord our God,(AE)
the One who sits enthroned(AF) on high,(AG)
6 who stoops down to look(AH)
on the heavens and the earth?
7 He raises the poor(AI) from the dust
and lifts the needy(AJ) from the ash heap;
8 he seats them(AK) with princes,
with the princes of his people.
9 He settles the childless(AL) woman in her home
as a happy mother of children.
Praise the Lord.
5 Why was it, sea, that you fled?(AS)
Why, Jordan, did you turn back?
6 Why, mountains, did you leap like rams,
you hills, like lambs?
