The fifth book of Psalms, song 112, New English Translation

Psalm 112

   1 Praise the LORD! How blessed is the one who obeys the LORD, who takes great delight in keeping his commands.
   2 His descendants will be powerful on the earth; the godly will be blessed.
   3 His house contains wealth and riches; his integrity endures.
   4 In the darkness a light shines for the godly, for each one who is merciful, compassionate, and just.
   5 It goes well for the one who generously lends money, and conducts his business honestly.
   6 For he will never be upended; others will always remember one who is just.
   7 He does not fear bad news. He is confident; he trusts in the LORD.
   8 His resolve is firm; he will not succumb to fearbefore he looks in triumph on his enemies.
   9 He generously gives to the needy; his integrity endures. He will be vindicated and honored.
   10 When the wicked see this, they will worry; they will grind their teeth in frustration and melt away; the desire of the wicked will perish.
