Psalm 112

112
The Righteous Will Never Be Moved
1 # 112:1 This psalm is an acrostic poem, each line beginning with the successive letters of the Hebrew alphabet #See Ps. 104:35 Praise the Lord!
# Ps. 128:1, 4; [Ps. 111:10; 115:13] Blessed is the man who fears the Lord,
who #See Ps. 1:2greatly delights in his commandments!
2His #[Ps. 25:13; 102:28; Prov. 11:21; 20:7] offspring will be mighty in the land;
# Ps. 37:26 the generation of the upright will be blessed.
3 # See Prov. 3:16 Wealth and riches are in his house,
and his #[Ps. 111:3]righteousness endures forever.
4Light dawns in the darkness #[Job 11:17]; See Ps. 97:11 for the upright;
he is gracious, merciful, and #[Matt. 1:19]righteous.
5It is well with the man who #See Ps. 37:26deals generously and lends;
who conducts his affairs with justice.
6For the righteous will #Ps. 55:22 never be moved;
# [Prov. 10:7] he will be remembered forever.
7He is not #Prov. 1:33 afraid of bad news;
his #Ps. 57:7 heart is firm, #Ps. 11:1; 64:10trusting in the Lord.
8His heart is steady;#112:8 Or established (compare 111:8) he will not be afraid,
until he looks in triumph on his adversaries.
9He has #Cited 2 Cor. 9:9 distributed freely; he has given to the poor;
his righteousness endures forever;
his #See Ps. 75:10horn is exalted in honor.
10The wicked man sees it and is angry;
he #[Matt. 8:12; Luke 13:28]; See Job 16:9 gnashes his teeth and #[Ps. 58:8] melts away;
# See Job 8:13 the desire of the wicked will perish!
