Blessed is the man that fears Yahweh,
That delights greatly in his commandments.
2 His seed shall be mighty upon earth:
The generation of the upright shall be blessed.
3 Wealth and riches are in his house;
And his righteousness endures forever.
4 To the upright there arises light in the darkness:
He is gracious, and merciful, and righteous.
5 Well is it with the man that deals graciously and lends;
He shall maintain his cause in judgment.
6 For he shall never be moved;
The righteous shall be had in everlasting remembrance.
7 He shall not be afraid of evil tidings:
His heart is fixed, trusting in Yahweh.
8 His heart is established, he shall not be afraid,
Until he sees his desire upon his adversaries.
9 He has dispersed, he has given to the needy;
His righteousness endures forever:
His horn shall be exalted with honor.
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.
Praise, O you servants of Yahweh,
Praise the name of Yahweh.
2 Blessed be the name of Yahweh
From this time forth and for evermore.
3 From the rising of the sun to the going down of the same
Yahweh’s name is to be praised.
4 Yahweh is high above all nations,
And his glory above the heavens.
5 Who is like Yahweh our Elohim,
Who has his seat on high,
6 Who humbles himself to behold
The things that are in heaven and in the earth?
7 He raises up the poor out of the dust,
And lifts up the needy from the dunghill;
8 That he may set him with princes,
Even with the princes of his people.
9 He makes the barren woman to keep house,
And to be a joyful mother of children.
When Israel went forth out of Egypt,
The house of Jacob from a people of strange language;
2 Judah became his sanctuary,
Israel his dominion.
3 The sea saw it, and fled;
The Jordan was driven back.
4 The mountains skipped like rams,
The little hills like lambs,
5 What ails you, O you sea, that you flee?
You Jordan, that you turn back?
6 You mountains, that you skip like rams;
You little hills, like lambs?
7 Tremble, you earth, at the presence of Yahweh,
At the presence of the Eloah of Jacob,
8 Who turned the rock into a pool of water,
The flint into a fountain of waters.
