1 Praise the Lord! Blessed is the one who fears the Lord,*
who has great delight in his commandments.
2 His seed shall be mighty in the land;*
the generation of the faithful shall be blessed.
3 Riches and plenteousness shall be in his house,*
and his righteousness shall endure for ever.
4 For the upright, there rises light in the darkness;*
he is merciful, loving, and righteous.
5 It is good for him to be generous in lending*
and to guide his words with discretion.
6 For he shall never be moved,*
and the righteous shall be kept in everlasting remembrance.
7 He will not be afraid of any evil tidings,*
for his heart is steadfast and trusts in the Lord.
8 His heart is established, and will not fear;*
at the last he shall see his desire upon his enemies.
9 He has given freely to the poor,*
and his righteousness endures for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honor.
10 The ungodly shall see it, and shall be angry;*
he shall gnash his teeth, and waste away; the desire of the ungodly shall perish.
