Old Testament

Psalm 112
Psalm 112
The Man Who Fears the Lord
1Praise the Lord![]
How blessed is a man who fears the Lord.
In his commands he delights greatly.
2His descendants will be mighty in the land.
The circle of the upright will be blessed.
3Wealth and riches are in his house,
and his righteousness stands forever.
4In darkness, light dawns for the upright.
He is gracious and compassionate and righteous.
5Good things will come to the man
who is gracious and lends,
who conducts his business with justice.
6Surely he will never fall.
The righteous will be remembered forever.
7He will not fear bad news.
His heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord.
8His heart is secure.
He will have no fear, until he looks in triumph on his foes.
9He scatters seed; he gives to the poor.
His righteousness stands forever.
His horn[] will be lifted high in glory.
The End of the Wicked
10The wicked person will see and be frustrated.
He will gnash his teeth and melt away.
The desire of the wicked will perish.
