PSALM 112
AMP
112
Prosperity of the One Who Fears the Lord.
1 Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!)
Blessed [fortunate, prosperous, and favored by God] is the man who fears the Lord [with awe-inspired reverence and worships Him with obedience],
Who delights greatly in His commandments.
2 His descendants will be mighty on earth;
The generation of the upright will be blessed.
3 Wealth and riches are in his house,
And his righteousness endures forever.
4 Light arises in the darkness for the upright;
He is gracious and compassionate and righteous (upright--in right standing with God).
5 It is well with the man who is gracious and lends;
He conducts his affairs with justice.
6 He will never be shaken;
The righteous will be remembered forever.
7 He will not fear bad news;
His heart is steadfast, trusting [confidently relying on and believing] in the Lord.
8 His heart is upheld, he will not fear
While he looks [with satisfaction] on his adversaries.
9 He has given freely to the poor;
His righteousness endures forever;
His horn will be exalted in honor.
10 The wicked will see it and be angered,
He will gnash his teeth and melt away [in despair and death];
The desire of the wicked will perish and come to nothing.
