Representative Text

1 Praise ye the Lord. The man is blessed
that fears the Lord aright,
he who in his commandments all
doth greatly take delight.
2 His seed shall power have on earth
and great prosperity;
the children of the upright men
shall ever blessed be.

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 show,
and doth to others lend:
he in the judgment will his cause
maintain unto the end.
6 Surely there is not anything
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 fixed, 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 dispersed his wealth abroad,
and given to the poor,
his horn in honour shall be raised,
his righteousness endure.
10 The wicked shall it see, and fret,
his teeth gnash, melt away:
what wicked men do most desire
shall utterly decay.
