1 Hallelujah. Happy is the man that feareth the Lord, that greatly delighteth in his commandments.
2 His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed.
3 Plenty and riches shall be in his house, and his righteousness shall endure for ever.
4 There ariseth in the darkness a light to the upright: he is gracious, and merciful, and righteous.
5 Well will it be with the man who is kind, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with justice.
6 Surely unto eternity shall he not be moved: in everlasting remembrance shall the righteous be held.
7 Of an evil report shall he not be afraid: his heart is firm, trusting in the Lord.
8 Well supported is his heart, he shall not be afraid, until he looketh on the punishment of his assailants.
9 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.
