New International Reader's Version

Psalm 112

Psalm 112

Praise the Lord.

Blessed are those who have respect for the Lord.
    They find great delight when they obey God’s commands.

Their children will be powerful in the land.
    Because they are honest, their children will be blessed.
Their family will have wealth and riches.
    They will always be blessed for doing what is right.
Even in the darkness light shines on honest people.
    It shines on those who are kind and tender and godly.
Good things will come to those who are willing to lend freely.
    Good things will come to those who are fair in everything they do.
Those who do what is right will always be secure.
    They will be remembered forever.
They aren’t afraid when bad news comes.
    They stand firm because they trust in the Lord.
Their hearts are secure. They aren’t afraid.
    In the end they will see their enemies destroyed.
They have spread their gifts around to poor people.
    Their good works continue forever.
    They will be powerful and honored.

10 Evil people will see it and be upset.
    They will grind their teeth and become weaker and weaker.
    What evil people long to do can’t succeed.

詩篇 112

敬畏上帝者必蒙福

1你們要讚美耶和華!
敬畏耶和華、樂於遵行祂命令的人有福了!
他的子孫在世上必興盛,
正直人的後代必蒙福。
他的家財豐厚,
他的公義永存。
黑暗中必有光照亮正直人,
照亮有恩慈、好憐憫、行公義的人。
慷慨借貸,
行事公正的人必亨通。
他必永不動搖,
義人必永遠蒙眷顧。
他不怕惡訊,
他堅定地信靠耶和華。
他心裡鎮定自若,毫不害怕,
他終必戰勝仇敵。
他慷慨施捨,賙濟窮人;
他的仁義永遠長存,
他必充滿力量,得享尊榮。
10 惡人見狀,必然惱怒,
咬牙切齒,氣絕身亡。
惡人的盼望必破滅。
