Godliness hath the promises for this life,
Psalms 112:1 Prayse ye the Lord. Blessed is the man, that feareth the Lord, and deliteth greatly in his commandements. Psalms 112:2 His seede shall be mightie vpon earth: the generation of the righteous shall be blessed. Psalms 112:3 Riches and treasures shalbe in his house, and his righteousnesse endureth for euer.
and of the life to come.
Psalms 112:4 Vnto the righteous ariseth light in darkenes: he is merciful & full of copassion & righteous. Psalms 112:5 A good man is mercifull and lendeth, and will measure his affaires by iudgement. Psalms 112:6 Surely he shall neuer be moued: but the righteous shalbe had in euerlasting remembrance. Psalms 112:7 He will not be afraide of euill tidings: for his heart is fixed, and beleeueth in the Lord. Psalms 112:8 His heart is stablished: therefore he will not feare, vntill he see his desire vpon his enemies. Psalms 112:9 He hath distributed and giuen to ye poore: his righteousnesse remaineth for euer: his horne shalbe exalted with glory.
The prosperity of the godly shall be an eyesore to the wicked.
