Light arises in the darkness for the upright; He is gracious and compassionate and righteous.
For He has strengthened the bars of your gates; He has blessed your sons within you.
A righteous man who walks in his integrity-- How blessed are his sons after him.
All day long he is craving, While the righteous gives and does not hold back.
