Blessed is the Righteous Man
1Halleluyah! Happy is the man who fears Adonai, who delights greatly in His mitzvot.
2His offspring 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 forever.
4Light shines in the darkness for the upright. Gracious, compassionate and just is he.
5Good comes to a man who is gracious and lends. He will order his affairs with fairness.
6Surely he will never be shaken. The righteous are remembered forever.
7He is not afraid of bad news— his heart is steadfast, trusting in Adonai.
8His heart is secure, he will not fear— until he gazes on his foes.
9He gives freely to the poor. His righteousness endures forever. His horn is lifted high in honor.
10The wicked will see it and be indignant. He will gnash with his teeth and waste away. The desire of the wicked will perish.
