Psalms 112

# Psalm 112 In Hebrew, each line of this psalm begins with the next letter in the alphabet. 1Praise the Lord!
Great blessings belong to those who fear and respect the Lord,
who are happy to do what he commands.
2Their descendants will be given power on earth.
Those who do right will be greatly blessed.
3Their family will be very rich,
and their goodness will continue forever.
4A light shines in the dark for those who are good,
for those who are merciful, kind, and fair.
5It is good for people to be kind and generous
and to be fair in business.
6Such good people will never fall.
They will always be remembered.
7They will not be afraid of bad news.
They are confident because they trust in the Lord.
8They remain confident and without fear,
so they defeat their enemies.
9They freely give to the poor.
Their goodness will continue forever.
They will be honored with victory.
10The wicked become angry when they see this.
They grind their teeth in anger, but then they disappear.
They will never get what they want most.
