Psalm 112

The Blessed Fear of the LORD
(Psalm 128:1–6)

1 Hallelujah! a 

Blessed is the man who fears the LORD,

who greatly delights in His commandments.

2 His descendants will be mighty in the land;

the generation of the upright will be blessed.

3 Wealth and riches are in his house,

and his righteousness endures forever.

4 Light dawns in the darkness for the upright—

for the gracious, compassionate, and righteous.

5 It is well with the man who is generous and lends freely,

whose affairs are guided by justice.

6 Surely he will never be shaken;

the righteous man will be remembered forever.

7 He does not fear bad news;

his heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD.

8 His heart is assured; he does not fear,

until he looks in triumph on his foes.

9 He has scattered abroad his gifts to the poor;

his righteousness endures forever; b 

his horn will be lifted high in honor.

10 The wicked man will see and be grieved;

he will gnash his teeth and waste away;

the desires of the wicked will perish.
