Godliness hath the promises for this life,
Psalms 112:1 Praise ye the LORD. Blessed [is] the man [that] feareth the LORD, [that] delighteth greatly in his commandments. Psalms 112:2 His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed. Psalms 112:3 Wealth and riches [shall be] in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever.
and of the life to come.
Psalms 112:4 To the upright there ariseth light in darkness: [he is] gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous. Psalms 112:5 A good man showeth favor, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion. Psalms 112:6 Surely 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, trusting in the LORD. Psalms 112:8 His heart [is] established, he shall not be afraid, until he seeth [his desire] upon his enemies. Psalms 112:9 He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honor.
The prosperity of the godly shall be an eyesore to the wicked.
Psalms 112:10 The wicked shall see [it], and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.
