Salme 112

At adlyde Herren giver velsignelse

1Halleluja!
At adlyde Herren giver velsignelse.[a]
    Budene er til for at blive overholdt.
Du og dine efterkommere får fremgang og magt,
    enhver, der handler ret, bliver velsignet.
Familien vil opleve velstand,
    gode mennesker vil altid blive husket.
Herren gør de gudfrygtige til et lys midt i mørket,
    især når de er venlige og barmhjertige.
Ja, velsignet er de gavmilde og hjælpsomme,
    kendetegnet på deres handlinger er ærlighed.
Lever de sådan, får de styrke og fasthed,
    mennesker med et godt ry bliver husket længe.
Når modgangen kommer, som kunne skabe frygt,
    opgiver de ikke, for de stoler på Herren.
På trods af fjendens angreb
    rider de stormen af og ender med sejr.
Sådanne mennesker giver gavmildt til dem, der er i nød,
    taknemmelighed og ære bliver dem til del,
uselvisk godhed vil aldrig blive glemt.
10     Ved at se en sådan velsignelse bliver de gudløse vrede.
Ynkeligt sidder de tilbage med tomme hænder,
    ærgrelsen står malet i deres ansigter.

Amplified Bible

Psalm 112

Prosperity of the One Who Fears the Lord.

1Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!)
Blessed [fortunate, prosperous, and favored by God] is the man who fears the Lord [with awe-inspired reverence and worships Him with obedience],
Who delights greatly in His commandments.

His descendants will be mighty on earth;
The generation of the upright will be blessed.

Wealth and riches are in his house,
And his righteousness endures forever.

Light arises in the darkness for the upright;
He is gracious and compassionate and righteous (upright—in right standing with God).

It is well with the man who is gracious and lends;
He conducts his affairs with justice.

He will never be shaken;
The righteous will be remembered forever.


He will not fear bad news;
His heart is steadfast, trusting [confidently relying on and believing] in the Lord.

His heart is upheld, he will not fear
While he looks [with satisfaction] on his adversaries.

He has given freely to the poor;
His righteousness endures forever;
His horn will be exalted in honor.

10 
The wicked will see it and be angered,
He will gnash his teeth and melt away [in despair and death];
The desire of the wicked will perish and come to nothing.
