* 1 Praise the Lord!
How joyful are those who fear the Lord
and delight in obeying his commands.
an entire generation of godly people will be blessed.
and their good deeds will last forever.
They are generous, compassionate, and righteous.
and conduct their business fairly.
Those who are righteous will be long remembered.
they confidently trust the Lord to care for them.
and can face their foes triumphantly.
Their good deeds will be remembered forever.
They will have influence and honor.
They will grind their teeth in anger;
they will slink away, their hopes thwarted.
