English Revised Version
Blessed is He who Fears the Lord
1Praise ye the LORD.
Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD, >
that delighteth greatly in his commandments.
2His seed shall be mighty upon earth:
the generation of the upright shall be blessed.
3Wealth and riches are in his house:
and his righteousness endureth for ever.
4Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness:
he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.
5Well is it with the man that dealeth graciously and lendeth;
he shall maintain his cause in judgment.
6For he shall never be moved;
the righteous shall be had in everlasting remembrance.
7He shall not be afraid of evil tidings:
his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD.
8His heart is established, he shall not be afraid,
until he see his desire upon his adversaries.
9He hath dispersed, he hath given to the needy;
his righteousness endureth for ever:
his horn shall be exalted with honour.
10The wicked shall see it, and be grieved;
he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away:
the desire of the wicked shall perish.
