Prosperity of the One Who Fears the Lord.

1 1Praise 2the Lord!

How ablessed is the man who 3fears the Lord,

Who greatly bdelights in His commandments.

2 His 1adescendants will be mighty 2on earth;

The generation of the bupright will be blessed.

3 aWealth and riches are in his house,

And his righteousness endures forever.

4 Light arises in the darkness afor the upright;

He is bgracious and compassionate and righteous.

5 It is well with the man who ais gracious and lends;

He will 1maintain his cause in judgment.

6 For he will anever be shaken;

The brighteous will be 1remembered forever.

7 He will not fear aevil tidings;

His bheart is steadfast, ctrusting in the Lord.

8 His aheart is upheld, he bwill not fear,

Until he clooks with satisfaction on his adversaries.

9 1He ahas given freely to the poor,

His righteousness endures forever;

His bhorn will be exalted in honor.

10 The awicked will see it and be 1vexed,

He will bgnash his teeth and cmelt away;

The ddesire of the wicked will perish.


About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update

The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
