SCRIPTURE LESSONS: Psalm 112: 1-10 

Praise the Lord! Happy are those who fear the Lord, who greatly delight in the commandments of the Lord. 

Their descendants will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed. 

Wealth and riches are in their houses, and their righteousness endures forever.

They rise in the darkness as a light for the upright; they are gracious, merciful, and righteous. 

It is well with those who deal generously and lend, who conduct their affairs with justice. 

For the righteous will never be moved; they will be remembered forever.

They are not afraid of evil tidings; their hearts are firm, secure in the Lord.

Their hearts are steady, they will not be afraid; in the end they will look in triumph on their adversaries

They have distributed freely, they have given to the poor; their righteousness endures forever; their horn is exalted in honor. 

The wicked see it and are angry; they gnash their teeth and melt away; the desire of the wicked comes to nothing.
