1 Praise the Lord! Happy are those who fear the Lord, who greatly delight in his commandments. 1 Praise the LORD. Blessed is the man who fears the LORD, who finds great delight in his commands.
2 Their descendants will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed. 2 His children will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed.
3 Wealth and riches are in their houses, and their righteousness endures forever. 3 Wealth and riches are in his house, and his righteousness endures forever.
4 They rise in the darkness as a light for the upright; they are gracious, merciful, and righteous. 4 Even in darkness light dawns for the upright, for the gracious and compassionate and righteous man.
5 It is well with those who deal generously and lend, who conduct their affairs with justice. 5 Good will come to him who is generous and lends freely, who conducts his affairs with justice.
6 For the righteous will never be moved; they will be remembered forever. 6 Surely he will never be shaken; a righteous man will be remembered forever.
7 They are not afraid of evil tidings; their hearts are firm, secure in the Lord. 7 He will have no fear of bad news; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD.
8 Their hearts are steady, they will not be afraid; in the end they will look in triumph on their foes. 8 His heart is secure, he will have no fear; in the end he will look in triumph on his foes.
9 They have distributed freely, they have given to the poor; their righteousness endures forever; their horn is exalted in honor. 9 He has scattered abroad his gifts to the poor, his righteousness endures forever; his horn will be lifted high in honor.
10 The wicked see it and are angry; they gnash their teeth and melt away; the desire of the wicked comes to nothing. 10 The wicked man will see and be vexed, he will gnash his teeth and waste away; the longings of the wicked will come to nothing.
