THE HOLY BIBLE Douay-Rheims

Book of Psalms (Author Moses, David, Solomon, Asaph, Eman, Ethan, sons of Core, compiled by Esdras)

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.
