Psalm 112. Beatus vir.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Twenty-third Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. Hallelujah! Happy are they who fear the Lord *
    and have great delight in his commandments!
  2. Their descendants will be mighty in the land; *
    the generation of the upright will be blessed.
  3. Wealth and riches will be in their house, *
    and their righteousness will last for ever.
  4. Light shines in the darkness for the upright; *
    the righteous are merciful and full of compassion.
  5. It is good for them to be generous in lending *
    and to manage their affairs with justice.
  6. For they will never be shaken; *
    the righteous will be kept in everlasting remembrance.
  7. They will not be afraid of any evil rumors; *
    their heart is right; they put their trust in the Lord.
  8. Their heart is established and will not shrink, *
    until they see their desire upon their enemies.
  9. They have given freely to the poor, *
    and their righteousness stands fast for ever; they will hold up their head with honor.
  10. The wicked will see it and be angry; they will gnash their teeth and pine away; *
    the desires of the wicked will perish.
