Blessed is He who Fears the Lord
Blessed is the man that feareth the Lord: >
he shall delight exceedingly in his commandments.
2His seed shall be mighty upon earth:
the generation of the righteous shall be blessed.
3Glory and wealth shall be in his house:
and his justice remaineth for ever and ever.
4To the righteous a light is risen up in darkness:
he is merciful, and compassionate and just.
5Acceptable is the man that showeth mercy and lendeth:
he shall order his words with judgment:
6because he shall not be moved for ever.
The just shall be in everlasting remembrance:
7 he shall not hear the evil hearing.
His heart is ready to hope in the Lord:
8his heart is strengthened, he shall not be moved
until he look over his enemies.
9He hath distributed, he hath given to the poor:
his justice remaineth for ever and ever:
his horn shall be exalted in glory.
10The wicked shall see, and shall be angry,
he shall gnash with his teeth and pine away:
the desire of the wicked shall perish.
