112:1¤ Blessed is the man that feareth the Lord: he shall delight exceedingly in his commandments.
112:2His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the righteous shall be blessed.
112:3Glory and wealth shall be in his house: and his justice remaineth for ever and ever.
112:4To the righteous a light is risen up in darkness: he is merciful, and compassionate and just.
112:5Acceptable is the man that sheweth mercy and lendeth: he shall order his words with judgment:
112:6Because he shall not be moved for ever.
112:7The just shall be in everlasting remembrance: he shall not fear the evil hearing. His heart is ready to hope in the Lord:
112:8His heart is strengthened, he shall not be moved until he look over his enemies.
112:9He hath distributed, he hath given to the poor: his justice remaineth for ever and ever: his horn shall be exalted in glory.
112:10The wicked shall see, and shall be angry, he shall gnash with his teeth and pine away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.
113:1¤ Praise the Lord, ye children: praise ye the name of the Lord.
113:2Blessed be the name of the Lord, from henceforth now and for ever.
113:3From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same, the name of the Lord is worthy of praise.
113:4The Lord is high above all nations; and his glory above the heavens.
113:5Who is as the Lord our God, who dwelleth on high:
113:6and looketh down on the low things in heaven and in earth?
113:7Raising up the needy from the earth, and lifting up the poor out of the dunghill:
113:8That he may place him with princes, with the princes of his people.
113:9Who maketh a barren woman to dwell in a house, the joyful mother of children.
114:1¤ When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a barbarous people:
114:2Judea was made his sanctuary, Israel his dominion.
114:3The sea saw and fled: Jordan was turned back.
114:4The mountains skipped like rams, and the hills like the lambs of the flock.
114:5What ailed thee, O thou sea, that thou didst flee: and thou, O Jordan, that thou wast turned back?
114:6Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams, and ye hills, like lambs of the flock?
114:7At the presence of the Lord the earth was moved, at the presence of the God of Jacob:
114:8Who turned the rock into pools of water, and the stony hill into fountains of waters.
