Psalm 112

The Traits of the Righteous


Happy is the person who fears the Lord,

taking great delight in his commands.a

2His descendants will be powerful in the land;

the generation of the upright will be blessed.a

3Wealth and riches are in his house,a

and his righteousness endures forever.b

4Light shines in the darkness for the upright.a

He is gracious, compassionate, and righteous.b

5Good will come to the one who lends generously

and conducts his business fairly.a

6He will never be shaken.a

The righteous one will be remembered forever.b

7He will not fear bad news;

his heart is confident, trusting in the Lord.a

8His heart is assured; he will not fear.a

In the end he will look in triumph on his foes.b

9He distributes freely to the poor;

his righteousness endures forever.a

His horn will be exalted in honor.b

10The wicked one will see it and be angry;

he will gnash his teeth in despair.a

The desire of the wicked leads to ruin.b
