Psalm 112

From Scottish Metrical Psalms 1650

Meter: 8,6,8,6

1    Praise ye the Lord. The man is bless'd
       that fears the Lord aright,
     He who in his commandements
       doth greatly take delight.
2    His seed and offspring powerful
       shall be the earth upon:
     Of upright men blessed shall be
       the generation.

3    Riches and wealth shall ever be
       within his house in store;
     And his unspotted righteousness
       endures for evermore.
4    Unto the upright light doth rise,
       though he in darkness be:
     Compassionate, and merciful,
       and righteous, is he.

5    A good man doth his favour shew,
       and doth to others lend:
     He with discretion his affairs
       will guide unto the end.
6    Surely there is not any thing
       that ever shall him move:
     The righteous man's memorial
       shall everlasting prove.

7    When he shall evil tidings hear,
       he shall not be afraid:
     His heart is fix'd, his confidence
       upon the Lord is stay'd.
8    His heart is firmly stablished,
       afraid he shall not be,
     Until upon his enemies
       he his desire shall see.

9    He hath dispers'd, giv'n to the poor;
       his righteousness shall be
     To ages all; with honour shall
       his horn be raised high.
10   The wicked shall it see, and fret,
       his teeth gnash, melt away:
     What wicked men do most desire
       shall utterly decay.
