THE *BOOK OF
Psalm 112 ©
A praise-song of the godly, who have a promise of the life present and to come, and whose prosperity is a grief of heart to the ungodly.
PRAISE ye the LORD. Blessedais the man that feareth the LORD, that delighteth greatly in his commandments.
1His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed.
Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and 2his righteousness endureth for ever.
Unto the upright there ariseth 3light in the darkness: 4he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.
5A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: 6he will guide his affairs with discretion.
Surely he shall 7not be moved for ever: the righteous 8shall be in everlasting remembrance.
He shall 9not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart 10is fixed, trusting in the LORD.
His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire 11upon his enemies.
12He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; 13his righteousness endureth for ever; 14his horn shall be exalted with honour.
The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: 15the desire of the wicked shall perish.
