Psalm 112

1Praise the Lord!

How blessed is the one who obeys the Lord,

who takes great delight in keeping his commands.

2His descendants will be powerful on the earth;

the godly will be blessed.

3His house contains wealth and riches;

his integrity endures.

4In the darkness a light shines for the godly,

for each one who is merciful, compassionate, and just.

5It goes well for the one who generously lends money,

and conducts his business honestly.

6For he will never be upended;

others will always remember one who is just.

7He does not fear bad news.

He is confident; he trusts in the Lord.

8His resolve is firm; he will not succumb to fear

before he looks in triumph on his enemies.

9He generously gives to the needy;

his integrity endures.

He will be vindicated and honored.

10When the wicked see this, they will worry;

they will grind their teeth in frustration and melt away;

the desire of the wicked will perish.
