Original text and translations
Psalmus- caput 111 (Versio vulgata)
[1 Alleluja, reversionis Aggæi et Zachariæ.]
Beatus vir qui timet Dominum, in mandatis ejus volet nimis.
2 Potens in terra erit semen ejus; generatio rectorum benedicetur.
3 Gloria et divitiæ in domo ejus, et justitia ejus manet in sæculum sæculi.
4 Exortum est in tenebris lumen rectis, misericors, et miserator, et justus.
5 Jucundus homo qui miseretur et commodat, disponet sermones suos in judicio;
6 quia in æternum non commovebitur.
7 In memoria æterna erit justus; ab auditione mala non timebit. Paratum cor ejus sperare in Domino,
8 confirmatum est cor ejus; non commovebitur donec despiciat inimicos suos.
9 Dispersit, dedit pauperibus; justitia ejus manet in sæculum sæculi; cornu ejus exaltabitur in gloria.
10 Peccator videbit, et irascetur, dentibus suis fremet et tabescet; desiderium peccatorum peribit.
King James Bible 1610 (Psalm 112)
Praise ye the LORD. Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD, that delighteth greatly in his commandments.
2 His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed.
3 Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever.
4 Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.
5 A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion.
6 Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance.
7 He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD.
8 His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies.
9 He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour.
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.
