Ketuvim - Writings


Chapter 112

1 Hallelujah. Happy is the man that feareth HaShem, that delighteth greatly in His commandments.
2 His seed shall be mighty upon earth; the generation of the upright shall be blessed.
3 Wealth and riches are in his house; and his merit endureth for ever.
4 Unto the upright He shineth as a light in the darkness, gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.
5 Well is it with the man that dealeth graciously and lendeth, that ordereth his affairs rightfully.
6 For he shall never be moved; the righteous shall be had in everlasting remembrance.
7 He shall not be afraid of evil tidings; his heart is stedfast, trusting in HaShem.
8 His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he gaze upon his adversaries.
9 He hath scattered abroad, he hath given to the needy; his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted in honour.
10 The wicked shall see it, and be vexed; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away; the desire of the wicked shall perish.
