Blessings of the Righteous

1Praise the Lord!

Happy are those who fear the Lord,

who greatly delight in his commandments.

2Their descendants will be mighty in the land;

the generation of the upright will be blessed.

3Wealth and riches are in their houses,

and their righteousness endures forever.

4They rise in the darkness as a light for the upright;

they are gracious, merciful, and righteous.

5It is well with those who deal generously and lend,

who conduct their affairs with justice.

6For the righteous will never be moved;

they will be remembered forever.

7They are not afraid of evil tidings;

their hearts are firm, secure in the Lord.

8Their hearts are steady, they will not be afraid;

in the end they will look in triumph on their foes.

9They have distributed freely, they have given to the poor;

their righteousness endures forever;

their horn is exalted in honor.

10The wicked see it and are angry;

they gnash their teeth and melt away;

the desire of the wicked comes to nothing.
