Godliness hath the promises for this life,
Psalms 112:1 Hallelujah! Blessed is the man that feareth Jehovah, that delighteth greatly in his commandments. Psalms 112:2 His seed shall be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright shall be blessed. Psalms 112:3 Wealth and riches [shall be] in his house; and his righteousness abideth for ever.
and of the life to come.
Psalms 112:4 Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness; he is gracious, and merciful, and righteous. Psalms 112:5 It is well with the man that is gracious and lendeth; he will sustain his cause in judgment. Psalms 112:6 For he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance. Psalms 112:7 He shall not be afraid of evil tidings; his heart is fixed confiding in Jehovah; Psalms 112:8 His heart is maintained, he is not afraid, until he see [his desire] upon his oppressors. Psalms 112:9 He scattereth abroad, he giveth to the needy; his righteousness abideth for ever: his horn shall be exalted with honour.
The prosperity of the godly shall be an eyesore to the wicked.
Psalms 112:10 The wicked [man] shall see [it] and be vexed; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.
