Prosperity of the One Who Fears the LORD.

1 Praise the LORD! How 1blessed is the man who fears the LORD, Who greatly 2delights in His commandments.
2 His 3descendants will be mighty on earth; The generation of the 4upright will be blessed.
3 5Wealth and riches are in his house, And his righteousness endures forever.
4 Light arises in the darkness 6for the upright; He is 7gracious and compassionate and righteous.
5 It is well with the man who 8is gracious and lends; He will maintain his cause in judgment.
6 For he will 9never * be shaken; The 10righteous will be remembered forever.
7 He will not fear 11evil tidings; His 12heart is steadfast, 13trusting in the LORD.
8 His 14heart is upheld, he 15will not fear, Until he 16looks with satisfaction on his adversaries.
9 He 17has given freely to the poor, His righteousness endures forever; His 18horn will be exalted in honor.
10 The 19wicked will see it and be vexed, He will 20gnash his teeth and 21melt away; The 22desire of the wicked will perish.
