Psalm 112
International Standard Version Par ▾ 

The Gracious Persona


How happy is the person who fears the LORD,

who truly delights in his commandments.

2His descendants will be powerful in the land,

a generation of the upright who will be blessed.

3Wealth and riches are in his house,

and his righteousness endures forever.

4A light shines in the darkness for the upright,

for the one who is gracious, compassionate, and just.

5It is good for the person who lends generously,

conducting his affairs with fairness.

6He will never be shaken;

the one who is just will always be remembered.

7He need not fear a bad report,

for his heart is unshaken, since he trusts in the LORD.

8His heart is steadfast, he will not fear.

In the end he will look in triumph over his enemy.

9He gives generously to the poor;

his righteousness endures forever;

his horn is exalted in honor.

10The wicked person sees this and flies into a rage;

his teeth gnash and wear away.

The desire of the wicked will amount to nothing.

a 112:T In this acrostic psalm each line begins with a consecutive letter of the Heb. alphabet.
