Psalm 112. Beatus vir.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Twenty-third Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. BLESSED is the man that feareth the Lord; *
    he hath great delight in his commandments.
  2. His seed shall be mighty upon earth; *
    the generation of the faithful shall be blessed.
  3. Riches and plenteousness shall be in his house; *
    and his righteousness endureth for ever.
  4. Unto the godly there ariseth up light in the darkness; *
    he is merciful, loving, and righteous.
  5. A good man is merciful, and lendeth; *
    and will guide his words with discretion.
  6. For he shall never be moved: *
    and the righteous shall be had in everlasting remembrance.
  7. He will not be afraid of any evil tidings; *
    for his heart standeth fast, and believeth in the Lord.
  8. His heart is stablished, and will not shrink, *
    until he see his desire upon his enemies.
  9. He hath dispersed abroad, and given to the poor. *
    and his righteousness remaineth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour.
  10. The ungodly shall see it, and it shall grieve him; *
    he shall gnash with his teeth, and consume away; the desire of the ungodly shall perish.
