Psalm 112

Prosperity of the One Who Fears the Lord.

1[a]Praise [b]the Lord!
How blessed is the man who [c]fears the Lord,
Who greatly delights in His commandments.
His [d]descendants will be mighty [e]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.
It is well with the man who is gracious and lends;
He will [f]maintain his cause in judgment.
For he will never be shaken;
The righteous will be [g]remembered forever.

He will not fear evil tidings;
His heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord.
His heart is upheld, he will not fear,
Until he looks with satisfaction on his adversaries.
[h]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 [i]vexed,
He will gnash his teeth and melt away;
The desire of the wicked will perish.

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.
