|<< Psalm 112 >>|
GOD'S WORD ® Translation
Hallelujah! Blessed is the person who fears the LORD and is happy to obey his commands.
2His descendants will grow strong on the earth. The family of a decent person will be blessed.
3Wealth and riches will be in his home. His righteousness continues forever.
4Light will shine in the dark for a decent person. He is merciful, compassionate, and fair.
5All goes well for the person who is generous and lends willingly. He earns an honest living.
6He will never fail. A righteous person will always be remembered.
7He is not afraid of bad news. His heart remains secure, full of confidence in the LORD.
8His heart is steady, and he is not afraid. In the end he will look triumphantly at his enemies.
9He gives freely to poor people. His righteousness continues forever. His head is raised in honor.
10The wicked person sees this and becomes angry. He angrily grits his teeth and disappears. The hope that wicked people have will vanish.
