1Hallelujah! Blessed is the man that feareth Jehovah, that delighteth greatly in his commandments. 2His seed shall be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright shall be blessed. 3Wealth and riches shall be in his house; and his righteousness abideth for ever. 4Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness; he is gracious, and merciful, and righteous. 5It is well with the man that is gracious and lendeth; he will sustain his cause in judgment.
6For he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance. 7He shall not be afraid of evil tidings; his heart is fixed confiding in Jehovah; 8His heart is maintained, he is not afraid, until he see his desire upon his oppressors. 9He scattereth abroad, he giveth to the needy; his righteousness abideth for ever: his horn shall be exalted with honour. 10The wicked man shall see it and be vexed; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.
