Psalm 112


1Praise ye the Lord. The man is bless’d

that fears the Lord aright,

He who in his commandements

doth greatly take delight.

2His seed and offspring powerful

shall be the earth upon:

Of upright men blessed shall be

the generation.

3Riches and wealth shall ever be

within his house in store;

And his unspotted righteousness

endures for evermore.

4Unto the upright light doth rise,

though he in darkness be:

Compassionate, and merciful,

and righteous, is he.

5A good man doth his favour shew,

and doth to others lend:

He with discretion his affairs

will guide unto the end.

6Surely there is not any thing

that ever shall him move:

The righteous man’s memorial

shall everlasting prove.

7When he shall evil tidings hear,

he shall not be afraid:

His heart is fix’d, his confidence

upon the Lord is stay’d.

8His heart is firmly stablished,

afraid he shall not be,

Until upon his enemies

he his desire shall see.

9He hath dispers’d, giv’n to the poor;

his righteousness shall be

To ages all; with honour shall

his horn be raised high.

10The wicked shall it see, and fret,

his teeth gnash, melt away:

What wicked men do most desire

shall utterly decay.
