Psalm 112
New American Standard Bible►► 

Prosperity of One Who Fears the LORD.

1[a]Praise [b]the LORD!

Blessed is a person who [c]fears the LORD,

Who greatly delights in His commandments.

2His [d]descendants will be mighty [e]on the earth;

The generation of the upright will be blessed.

3Wealth and riches are in his house,

And his righteousness endures forever.

4Light shines in the darkness for the upright;

He is gracious, compassionate, and righteous.

5It goes well for a person who is gracious and lends;

He will [f]maintain his cause in judgment.

6For he will never be shaken;

The righteous will be [g]remembered forever.

7He will not fear bad news;

His heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD.

8His heart is firm, he will not fear,

[h]But will look with satisfaction on his enemies.

9[i]He has given freely to the poor,

His righteousness endures forever;

His horn will be exalted in honor.

10The wicked will see it and be [j]vexed,

He will gnash his teeth and melt away;

The desire of the wicked will perish.

[a] 1 Or Hallelujah! Blessed
[b] 1 Heb YAH
[c] 1 Or reveres
[d] 2 Lit seed
[e] 2 Or in the land
[f] 5 Or conduct his affairs with justice
[g] 6 Lit for an eternal remembrance
[h] 8 Lit until he looks
[i] 9 Lit He has scattered, he has given to...
[j] 10 Or angry
