This psalm is also alphabetically composed; and contains, (1.) Invitations to praise God, ver. 1. (2.) A delineation of the saints' character and blessedness: that they are well principled, honest, sincere, and kind; and shall be blessed with prosperity, outward and inward, with comfort amidst griefs, wisdom amidst perplexity, and with honour and stability; and shall have their posterity blessed after them, ver. 2-9. (3.) The misery of the wicked, ver. 10. While I sing this, let me try my character, and rejoice in hope of being blessed in Christ Jesus, with all spiritual, temporal, and everlasting blessings. 1 Praise ye the Lord. The man is bless'd that fears the Lord aright, He who in his commandements doth greatly take delight. 2 His seed and offspring powerful shall be the earth upon: Of upright men blessed shall be the generation. 3 Riches and wealth shall ever be within his house in store; And his unspotted righteousness endures for evermore. 4 Unto the upright light doth rise, though he in darkness be: Compassionate, and merciful, and righteous, is he. 5 A good man doth his favour shew, and doth to others lend: He with discretion his affairs will guide unto the end. 6 Surely there is not any thing that ever shall him move: The righteous man's memorial shall everlasting prove. 7 When he shall evil tidings hear, he shall not be afraid: His heart is fix'd, his confidence upon the Lord is stay'd. 8 His heart is firmly stablished, afraid he shall not be, Until upon his enemies he his desire shall see. 9 He hath dispers'd, giv'n to the poor; his righteousness shall be To ages all; with honour shall his horn be raised high. 10 The wicked shall it see, and fret, his teeth gnash, melt away: What wicked men do most desire shall utterly decay.
