1Praise the Lord!

Blessed is the man who fears the Lord,

who greatly delights in his commandments!

2His descendants will be mighty in the land;

the generation of the upright will be blessed.

3Wealth and riches are in his house;

and his righteousness endures for ever.

4Light rises in the darkness for the upright;

the Lord is gracious, merciful, and righteous.

5It is well with the man who deals generously and lends,

who conducts his affairs with justice.

6For the righteous will never be moved;

he will be remembered for ever.

7He is not afraid of evil tidings;

his heart is firm, trusting in the Lord.

8His heart is steady, he will not be afraid,

until he sees his desire on his adversaries.

9He has distributed freely, he has given to the poor;

his righteousness endures for ever;

his horn is exalted in honor.

10The wicked man sees it and is angry;

he gnashes his teeth and melts away;

the desire of the wicked man comes to nought.
