Psalm 112

1 O praise the Lord. Blessed are they fear the Lord:
    and greatly delight in his commandments.
2 Their children shall be mighty in the land:
    an upright race who will be blessed.
3 Riches and plenty shall be in their house:
    and their righteousness shall stand for ever.
4 Light arises in darkness for the upright:
    gracious and merciful are the righteous^.
5 It goes well with those who act generously and lend:
    who guide their affairs with justice.
6 Surely they shall never be moved:
    the righteous shall be held in everlasting remembrance.
7 They will not fear bad tidings:
    their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the Lord.
8 Their hearts are confident and will not fear:
    they will see the downfall of their enemies.
9 They give freely to the poor:
    their righteousness stands for ever, their head is uplifted in glory.
10 The wicked ^shall see it and be angry:
    they shall gnash their teeth and consume away; and the hope of the wicked shall fail.
