Psalms 112

Thomson(i) 1 An Alleluia. Happy the man who feareth the Lord! in his commandments he will greatly delight. 2 His seed shall be mighty in the land: the generation of the upright shall be blessed. 3 Glory and riches are in his house; and his righteousness shall endure forever. 4 To the upright light sprang up in darkness. He is merciful, compassionate and just; 5 a beneficent man who commiserateth and lendeth. He will manage his affairs with judgment; 6 because he is never to be shaken; the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance: 7 at bad news he will not be terrified: his heart is prepared to trust in the Lord. 8 His heart is established, he could not be terrified; even when he beheld his enemies. 9 He hath dispersed, he hath given to the needy; his righteousness shall endure forever. His horn shall be gloriously exalted: 10 the wicked shall see and be enraged. Let him gnash his teeth and pine away; the desire of the wicked shall perish.
