Psalms 112

The fear - True religion. Beginning - Is the only foundation of, and introduction to, true wisdom. Generation - The posterity. Righteousness - The fruit or reward of his righteousness, which is God's blessing upon his estate. Darkness - In the troubles and calamities of life. He - The upright man. Lendeth - Gives freely to some, and lends to others according to the variety of their conditions. Affairs - His domestick affairs. Discretion - Not getting his estate unjustly, nor casting it away prodigally, nor yet withholding it from such as need it. Moved - Though he may for a season be afflicted, yet he shall not be eternally destroyed. Evil tidings - At the report of approaching calamities. Dispersed - His goods, freely and liberally. Righteousness - His liberality, or the reward of it. Ever - What he gives is not lost, but indeed is the only part of his estate, which will abide with him to all eternity. The desire - Either of the misery of good men; or of his own constant prosperity.
