Blessings of the man who fear YHWH

Hale lu Yah (הללו־יה).

112:1 Blessed [is] the man [that] feareth YHWH (יהוה),

[that] delighteth greatly in his commandments.

112:2 His seed shall be mighty upon earth:

the generation of the upright shall be blessed.

112:3 Wealth and riches [shall be] in his house:

and his tzedakah endureth forever.

112:4 Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: [he is] gracious, and full of compassion, and tzaddik.

112:5 A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth:

he will guide his affairs with discretion.

112:6 Surely he shall not be moved forever:

the tzaddik shall be in everlasting remembrance.

112:7 He shall not be afraid of evil tidings:

his heart is fixed, trusting in YHWH (יהוה).

112:8 His heart [is] established, he shall not be afraid,

until he see [his desire] upon His enemies.

112:9 He hath scattered, he hath given to the poor;

His tzedakah endureth forever;

His horn shall be exalted with honour.

112:10 The wicked shall see [it], and be grieved;

he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away:

the desire of the wicked shall perish.
