The man who fears
the Lord is blessed and delights in His commandments
His seed shall be mighty on the earth
He has wealth – righteousness
He has light – compassion
A good man shows favor, lends, and does business with discretion
He is unmoved from righteousness
He is unafraid; sees his desire on his enemies
He has given to the poor; his righteousness endures; his horn is exalted
The wicked will see
it and gnash his teeth
He melts away, hope gone
