1 Praise ye
the Lord. Blessed is the man that feareth the Lord,
that delighteth greatly in his commandments.
2 His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the
generation of the upright shall be blessed.
3 Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his
righteousness endureth for ever.
4 Unto the upright there ariseth light in the
darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion,
5 A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will
guide his affairs with discretion.
6 Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the
righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance.
7 He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart
is fixed, trusting in the Lord.
8 His heart is established, he shall not be afraid,
until he see his desire upon his enemies.
9 He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his
righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be
exalted with honour.
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.
Psalm 113 >
- The Book of David
The Book of Psalms which contains Psalm 112 is also referred to
as the Book of David. David reigned over Judah and Israel
was the second king of the united Kingdom of Israel. King
David is credited with the authorship of many of the Psalms
and the collection is therefore often referred to as the
Book of David.
