Psalm 112 Acrostic

1       Praise the Lord!


.        Always blessed is the man who fears the Lord,

.        Because he finds great delight in his commands.

2       Children he fathers will be mighty in the land;

.        Down thru each generation, the upright man will be blessed.

3       Ever filled with riches is his house;

.        Forever his righteousness endures.

4       Gracious and compassionate, the righteous man

.        Has light dawning on him even in darkness.

5       If he is generous and lends freely, good will come to him;

.        Justice is to guide him in all his affairs.

6       Know that he will never be shaken;

.        Long will a righteous man be remembered—forever, in fact.

7       Maintaining his trust in the Lord, his heart is steadfast;

.        No fear of bad news does he have.

8       Overthrowing all fear, his hear is secure;

.        Persevering to the end, he will look in triumph on his foes.

9       Quietly generous, he showers gifts on the poor;

.        Righteousness in him endures forever;

.        Surely his horn will be lifted high in honor.

10     The wicked man will see and be vexed;

.        Unceasingly he will gnash his teeth, but it will be

.        Vain, for his longings will come to nothing.
