Psalms 112:1-10

112*  Praise Jah, YOU people!*+א [ʼA′leph]Happy is the man* in fear of Jehovah,+ב [Behth]In whose commandments+ he has taken very much delight.+ ג [Gi′mel]   Mighty in the earth his offspring will become.+ד [Da′leth]As for the generation of the upright ones, it will be blessed.+ ה [Heʼ]   Valuable things and riches are in his house;+ו [Waw]And his righteousness is standing forever.+ ז [Za′yin]   He has flashed up in the darkness as a light to the upright ones.*+ח [Chehth]He is gracious and merciful and righteous.+ ט [Tehth]   The man is good who is gracious+ and is lending.+י [Yohdh]He sustains his affairs with justice.*+ כ [Kaph]   For at no time will he be made to totter.+ל [La′medh]The righteous one will prove to be for remembrance to time indefinite.+ מ [Mem]   He will not be afraid even of bad news.+נ [Nun]His heart is steadfast,+ made reliant upon Jehovah.+ ס [Sa′mekh]   His heart is unshakable;+ he will not be afraid,+ע [ʽA′yin]Until he looks on his adversaries.+ פ [Peʼ]   He has distributed widely;* he has given to the poor ones.+צ [Tsa·dheh′]His righteousness is standing forever.+ק [Qohph]His own horn will be exalted with glory.+ ר [Rehsh] 10  The wicked one himself will see and certainly become vexed.+ש [Shin]He will grind his very teeth and actually melt away.+ת [Taw]The desire of the wicked ones will perish.+
