* Psalm 112

We are singing your praises, LORD!

How good life is for those who respect you, LORD,
……..for those who gladly do what you want them to do.

Their children will follow in their footsteps,
……..doing what’s right and going from strength to strength.

You fill their homes with good things,
……..and guarantee their good reputation.

Their generosity, tolerance, and integrity shine forth in a dark world,
……..lighting up the way for others to follow.

LORD, you see that things go well
……..for those who conduct their business fairly
……..and lend generously to those in need.

You guarantee a firm footing for people of integrity;
……..their reputation will long outlast them.

Bad news will not break them,
……..for they have an inner strength grounded in you, LORD.
With their trust in you, they are calm in a crisis;
……..fearless in the fight,
…………….and they always end up on top.

You will honour their strength
……..and make their integrity a lasting legacy,
…………….for they have been open-handed, especially to the poor.

All this throws corrupt people into a snarling rage.
……..Bitterness consumes them
…………….as their dreams crumble to nothing.
