Psalm 111

Blessed is the man that feareth the Lord:
in His commandments he shall take great delight.

Mighty on earth shall be his seed:
the generation of the righteous shall be blessed.

Glory and wealth shall be in his house:
and his righteousness endureth for ever and ever.

He is risen in darkness, a light to the upright:
He is merciful, and compassionate, and just.

Acceptable is the man that showeth mercy and lendeth;
he shall order his words with judgment:
and he shall never give way.

The righteous man shall be in eternal remembrance:
he shall not fear an evil report.

His heawrt is ready to hope in the Lord:
his heart is strengthened:
he shall not yield till he despise his enemies.

He hath distributed and given to the poor;
his righteousness remaineth for ever:
his power shall be exalted in glory.

The sinner shall see it, and be enraged;
he shall gnash his teeth and pine away:
the desire of sinners shall perish.

Ant. He that feareth the Lord,
in His commandments shall have great delight.

Ant. Blessed be the Name of the Lord.
