Psalm 112
112:1 Praise the LORD!
How blessed is the one who obeys the LORD,
who takes great delight in keeping his commands.
112:2 His descendants will be powerful on the earth;
the godly will be blessed.
112:3 His house contains wealth and riches;
his integrity endures.
112:4 In the darkness a light shines for the godly,
for each one who is merciful, compassionate, and just.
112:5 It goes well for the one who generously lends money,
and conducts his business honestly.
112:6 For he will never be upended;
others will always remember one who is just.
112:7 He does not fear bad news.
He is confident; he trusts in the LORD.
112:8 His resolve is firm; he will not succumb to fear
before he looks in triumph on his enemies.
112:9 He generously gives to the needy;
his integrity endures.
He will be vindicated and honored.
112:10 When the wicked see this, they will worry;
they will grind their teeth in frustration and melt away;
the desire of the wicked will perish.
