The one who fears God is compared to Yahweh in these two poems. Such a person is a disciplined blogger, he will rein in his words with judgment.
|הַ֥לְלוּ יָ֨הּ ׀ אַשְׁרֵי־אִ֭ישׁ יָרֵ֣א אֶת־יְהוָ֑ה |
בְּ֝מִצְוֺתָ֗יו חָפֵ֥ץ מְאֹֽד
|1||f||Hallelu Yah. A happy person fears Yahweh. |
By his commandments he has much delight.
|גִּבּ֣וֹר בָּ֭אָרֶץ יִהְיֶ֣ה זַרְע֑וֹ |
דּ֭וֹר יְשָׁרִ֣ים יְבֹרָֽךְ
|2||Grandly valiant in the earth will be his seed. |
Days of the upright will be blessed.
|הוֹן־וָעֹ֥שֶׁר בְּבֵית֑וֹ |
וְ֝צִדְקָת֗וֹ עֹמֶ֥דֶת לָעַֽד
|3||High value and riches are in his house. |
Verily his righteousness stands for ever.
|זָ֘רַ֤ח בַּחֹ֣שֶׁךְ א֭וֹר לַיְשָׁרִ֑ים |
חַנּ֖וּן וְרַח֣וּם וְצַדִּֽיק
|4||~||Zenith-bearing in the darkness there is light to the upright. |
He is gracious and compassionate and righteous.
|טֽוֹב־אִ֭ישׁ חוֹנֵ֣ן וּמַלְוֶ֑ה |
יְכַלְכֵּ֖ל דְּבָרָ֣יו בְּמִשְׁפָּֽט
|5||This is a good person, gracious and lending. |
Yea, he will rein in his words with judgment.
|כִּֽי־לְעוֹלָ֥ם לֹא־יִמּ֑וֹט |
לְזֵ֥כֶר ע֝וֹלָ֗ם יִהְיֶ֥ה צַדִּֽיק
|6||Causing him never to be moved. |
Lasting forever in memory is one who is righteous.
|מִשְּׁמוּעָ֣ה רָ֭עָה לֹ֣א יִירָ֑א |
נָכ֥וֹן לִ֝בּ֗וֹ בָּטֻ֥חַ בַּיהוָֽה
|7||Messages of evil he does not fear. |
Now his heart is prepared, trusting in Yahweh.
|סָמ֣וּךְ לִ֭בּוֹ לֹ֣א יִירָ֑א |
עַ֖ד אֲשֶׁר־יִרְאֶ֣ה בְצָרָֽיו
|8||Supported is his heart, he does not fear, |
Even when it is that he sees his troubles.
|פִּזַּ֤ר ׀ נָ֘תַ֤ן לָאֶבְיוֹנִ֗ים צִ֭דְקָתוֹ עֹמֶ֣דֶת לָעַ֑ד |
קַ֝רְנ֗וֹ תָּר֥וּם בְּכָבֽוֹד
|9||Prodigal of love, he gives to the-many needy. |
Standing for ever is his righteousness.
Quite full his horn, exalted in glory.
|רָ֘שָׁ֤ע יִרְאֶ֨ה ׀ וְכָעָ֗ס שִׁנָּ֣יו יַחֲרֹ֣ק וְנָמָ֑ס |
תַּאֲוַ֖ת רְשָׁעִ֣ים תֹּאבֵֽד
|10||~||Rebel will see and will grieve. |
So will his teeth gnash and decay.
The desire of rebels will perish.
