1 Hallelujah! 2 Happy are those who fear the LORD, who greatly delight in God's commands.
Their descendants shall be mighty in the land, generation upright and blessed.
3 Wealth and riches shall be in their homes; their prosperity shall endure forever.
They shine through the darkness, a light for the upright; they are gracious, merciful, and just.
All goes well for those gracious in lending, who conduct their affairs with justice.
They shall never be shaken; the just shall be remembered forever.
They shall not fear an ill report; their hearts are steadfast, trusting the LORD.
Their hearts are tranquil, without fear, till at last they look down on their foes.
4 Lavishly they give to the poor; their prosperity shall endure forever; their horn shall be exalted in honor.
The wicked shall be angry to see this; they will gnash their teeth and waste away; the desires of the wicked come to nothing.
