The Righteous Will Never Be Moved1 ▼
▼This psalm is an acrostic poem, each line beginning with the successive letters of the Hebrew alphabetbPraise the Lord!
cBlessed is the man who fears the Lord,
who dgreatly delights in his commandments!
2His eoffspring will be mighty in the land;
fthe generation of the upright will be blessed.
3 gWealth and riches are in his house,
and his hrighteousness endures forever.
4Light dawns in the darkness ifor the upright;
he is gracious, merciful, and jrighteous.
5It is well with the man who kdeals generously and lends;
who conducts his affairs with justice.
6For the righteous will lnever be moved;
mhe will be remembered forever.
7He is not nafraid of bad news;
his oheart is firm ptrusting in the Lord.
8His heart is steady; he will not be afraid,
until he looks in triumph on his adversaries.
9He has qdistributed freely; he has given to the poor;
his righteousness endures forever;
his rhorn is exalted in honor.
10The wicked man sees it and is angry;
he sgnashes his teeth and tmelts away;
uthe desire of the wicked will perish!
