Prosperity of the One Who Fears the Lord.
[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.
The wicked will see it and be [i]vexed,
He will gnash his teeth and melt away;
The desire of the wicked will perish.
