112:1 Hallelujah. Happy is the man that feareth the Lord, that delighteth greatly in His commandments.

112:2 His seed shall be mighty upon earth; the generation of the upright shall be blessed.

112:3 Wealth and riches are in his house; and his merit endureth for ever.

112:4 Unto the upright He shineth as a light in the darkness, gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.

112:5 Well is it with the man that dealeth graciously and lendeth, that ordereth his affairs rightfully.

112:6 For he shall never be moved; the righteous shall be had in everlasting remembrance.

112:7 He shall not be afraid of evil tidings; his heart is stedfast, trusting in the Lord.

112:8 His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he gaze upon his adversaries.

112:9 He hath scattered abroad, he hath given to the needy; his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted in honour.

112:10 The wicked shall see it, and be vexed; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away; the desire of the wicked shall perish.
