Praise 1 the LORD!
Blessed is the man who fears the LORD,
Who a delights greatly in His commandments. 2 b His descendants will be mighty on earth;
The generation of the upright will be blessed. 3 c Wealth and riches will be in his house,
And his righteousness 2 endures forever. 4 d Unto the upright there arises light in the darkness;
He is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous. 5 e A good man deals graciously and lends;
He will guide his affairs f with discretion. 6 Surely he will never be shaken;
g The righteous will be in everlasting remembrance. 7 h He will not be afraid of evil tidings;
His heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD. 8 His i heart is established;
j He will not be afraid,
Until he k sees his desire upon his enemies. 9 He has dispersed abroad,
He has given to the poor;
His righteousness endures forever;
His 3 horn will be exalted with honor. 10 The wicked will see it and be grieved;
He will gnash his teeth and melt away;
The desire of the wicked shall perish.
