1 Praise Jehovah! Blessed is the person who respects Jehovah and is happy to obey his commandments.
2 His descendants will grow strong on the earth. The family of the upright will be blessed.
3 Wealth and riches will be in his home. His righteousness continues forever.
4 Light shines in the darkness for the upright. He is gracious, compassionate, and fair.
5 All goes well for the person who is generous and lends willingly. He earns an honest living.
6 He will never be shaken. The righteous will be remembered.
7 He is not afraid of bad news. His heart remains secure, full of confidence in Jehovah.
8 His heart is steady, and he is not afraid. In the end he will look triumphantly at his enemies.
9 He gives freely to poor. His righteousness continues forever. His head is raised in honor.
10 The wicked sees this and becomes angry. He angrily grits his teeth and disappears. The hope of the wicked will perish be destroyed.
