1
Hallelujah.
Happy is the man that feareth the LORD, that delighteth greatly in His commandments.
2
His seed shall be mighty upon earth;
the generation of the upright shall be blessed.
3
Wealth and riches are in his house;
and his merit endureth for ever.
4
Unto the upright He shineth as a light in the darkness, gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.
5
Well is it with the man that dealeth graciously and lendeth, that ordereth his affairs rightfully.
6
For he shall never be moved;
the righteous shall be had in everlasting remembrance.
7
He shall not be afraid of evil tidings;
his heart is stedfast, trusting in the LORD.
8
His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he gaze upon his adversaries.
9
He hath scattered abroad, he hath given to the needy;
his righteousness endureth for ever;
his horn shall be exalted in honour.
10
The wicked shall see it, and be vexed;
he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away;
the desire of the wicked shall perish.
