1Praise the LORD!
How blessed is the man who fears the LORD,
Who greatly delights in His commandments.
2His descendants will be mighty on earth;
The generation of the upright will be blessed.
3Wealth and riches are in his house,
And his righteousness endures forever.
4Light arises in the darkness for the upright;
[He is] gracious and compassionate and righteous.
5It is well with the man who is gracious and lends;
He will maintain his cause in judgment.
6For he will never be shaken;
The righteous will be remembered forever.
7He will not fear evil tidings;
His heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD.
8His heart is upheld, he will not fear,
Until he looks [with satisfaction] on his adversaries.
9He has given freely to the poor,
His righteousness endures forever;
His horn will be exalted in honor.
10The wicked will see it and be vexed,
He will gnash his teeth and melt away;
The desire of the wicked will perish.
