Hallelujah. Happy is the man that feareth the Lord, that greatly delighteth in his commandments. His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed. Plenty and riches shall be in his house, and his righteousness shall endure for ever. There ariseth in the darkness a light to the upright: he is gracious, and merciful, and righteous. Well will it be with the man who is kind, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with justice. Surely unto eternity shall he not be moved: in everlasting remembrance shall the righteous be held. Of an evil report shall he not be afraid: his heart is firm, trusting in the Lord. Well supported is his heart, he shall not be afraid, until he looketh on [the punishment of] his assailants. He distributeth, he giveth to the needy: his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted in honor. 10 The wicked shall see it, and be vexed; he will gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the longing of the wicked shall perish.
