Blessed is He who Fears the Lord
1Praise ye the LORD.
Blessed [is] the man [that] feareth the LORD,
[that] delighteth greatly in his commandments.
2His seed shall be mighty upon earth:
the generation of the upright shall be blessed.
3Wealth and riches [shall be] in his house:
and his righteousness endureth for ever.
4Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness:
[he is] gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.
5A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth:
he will guide his affairs with discretion.
6Surely he shall not be moved for ever:
the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance.
7He shall not be afraid of evil tidings:
his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD.
8His heart [is] established, he shall not be afraid,
until he see [his desire] upon his enemies.
9He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor;
his righteousness endureth for ever;
his horn shall be exalted with honour.
10The wicked shall see [it], and be grieved;
he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away:
the desire of the wicked shall perish.
