Psalm 112
Amplified Bible Par ▾ 

Prosperity of the One Who Fears the LORD.

1Praise the LORD! (Hallelujah!)

Blessed [fortunate, prosperous, and favored by God] is the man who fears the LORD [with awe-inspired reverence and worships Him with obedience],

Who delights greatly in His commandments.

2His descendants will be mighty on earth;

The generation of the upright will be blessed.

3Wealth and riches are in his house,

And his righteousness endures forever.

4Light arises in the darkness for the upright;

He is gracious and compassionate and righteous (upright--in right standing with God).

5It is well with the man who is gracious and lends;

He conducts his affairs with justice.

6He will never be shaken;

The righteous will be remembered forever.

7He will not fear bad news;

His heart is steadfast, trusting [confidently relying on and believing] in the LORD.

8His heart is upheld, he will not fear

While he looks [with satisfaction] on his adversaries.

9He has given freely to the poor;

His righteousness endures forever;

His horn will be exalted in honor.

10The wicked will see it and be angered,

He will gnash his teeth and melt away [in despair and death];

The desire of the wicked will perish and come to nothing.
