Psalms 112

The Righteous Will Never Be Moved

This psalm is an acrostic poem, each line beginning with the successive letters of the Hebrew alphabet
b  Praise the  Lord!
c  Blessed is the man who fears the  Lord,
who d  greatly delights in his commandments!
2His e  offspring will be mighty in the land;
f  the generation of the upright will be blessed.
3 g  Wealth and riches are in his house,
and his h  righteousness endures forever.
4Light dawns in the darkness i  for the upright;
he is gracious, merciful, and j  righteous.
5It is well with the man who k  deals generously and lends;
who conducts his affairs with justice.
6For the righteous will l  never be moved;
m  he will be remembered forever.
7He is not n  afraid of bad news;
his o  heart is firm p  trusting in the  Lord.
8His heart is steady; he will not be afraid,
until he looks in triumph on his adversaries.
9He has q  distributed freely; he has given to the poor;
his righteousness endures forever;
his r  horn is exalted in honor.
10The wicked man sees it and is angry;
he s  gnashes his teeth and t  melts away;
u  the desire of the wicked will perish!
