Halleluyah! How happy is anyone who fears ADONAI, who greatly delights in his mitzvot.
His descendants will be powerful on earth, a blessed generation of upright people.
Wealth and riches are in his house, and his righteousness stands forever.
To the upright he shines like a light in the dark, merciful, compassionate and righteous.
Things go well with the person who is merciful and lends, who conducts his affairs with fairness;
for he will never be moved. The righteous will be remembered forever.
He will not be frightened by bad news; he remains steady, trusting in ADONAI.
His heart is set firm, he will not be afraid, till finally he looks in triumph at his enemies.
He distributes freely, he gives to the poor; his righteousness stands forever. His power will be increased honorably.
The wicked will be angry when they see this; they will gnash their teeth and waste away, the desires of the wicked will come to nothing.
