Psalms - Chapter 112


The King James Version Basic English Version (BBE)

1 Praise ye the LORD. Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD, that delighteth greatly in his commandments.

1 Let the Lord be praised. Happy is the man who gives honour to the Lord, and has great delight in his laws.

2 His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed.

2 His seed will be strong on the earth; blessings will be on the generation of the upright.

3 Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever.

3 A store of wealth will be in his house, and his righteousness will be for ever.

4 Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.

4 For the upright there is a light shining in the dark; he is full of grace and pity.

5 A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion.

5 All is well for the man who is kind and gives freely to others; he will make good his cause when he is judged.

6 Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance.

6 He will not ever be moved; the memory of the upright will be living for ever.

7 He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD.

7 He will have no fear of evil news; his heart is fixed, for his hope is in the Lord.

8 His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies.

8 His heart is resting safely, he will have no fear, till he sees trouble come on his haters.

9 He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour.

9 He has given with open hands to the poor; his righteousness is for ever; his horn will be lifted up 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.

10 The sinner will see it with grief; he will be wasted away with envy; the desire of the evil-doers will come to nothing.
