Prosperity of the One Who Fears the Lord.

112 [a]Praise [b]the Lord!
How (A)blessed is the man who [c]fears the Lord,
Who greatly (B)delights in His commandments.
His [d](C)descendants will be mighty [e]on earth;
The generation of the (D)upright will be blessed.
(E)Wealth and riches are in his house,
And his righteousness endures forever.
Light arises in the darkness (F)for the upright;
He is (G)gracious and compassionate and righteous.
It is well with the man who (H)is gracious and lends;
He will [f]maintain his cause in judgment.
For he will (I)never be shaken;
The (J)righteous will be [g]remembered forever.

He will not fear (K)evil tidings;
His (L)heart is steadfast, (M)trusting in the Lord.
His (N)heart is upheld, he (O)will not fear,
Until he (P)looks with satisfaction on his adversaries.
[h]He (Q)has given freely to the poor,
His righteousness endures forever;
His (R)horn will be exalted in honor.

10 The (S)wicked will see it and be [i]vexed,
He will (T)gnash his teeth and (U)melt away;
The (V)desire of the wicked will perish.
