Psalm 112

Praise the Lord.
Blessed is the man who has respect for God, who finds pleasure in keeping God’s commands.
His children will be mighty and blessed.
Wealth and riches are in his house – the wealth and riches of God’s blessings.
Even in darkness, God’s light can be seen by the upright man looking up to God. Being gracious, hospitable, compassionate and righteous.
Good will come to him who is generous and lends freely, who is just in every affair.
A righteous man will never be shaken and will be remembered forever.
He will no fear “bad news” because his heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord.
His heart is secure in that trust and he will not have any fear. In the end, he will look in triumph on his foes.
He has scattered his gifts to the poor. His righteousness endures forever. His dignity will be honored by all.
The wicked man will see him and be vexed. He will waste away and his longings will fade away to nothing.

Psalm 58

Do you speak justice?
Do you speak righteousness?
Are you fair?
Do you plan on how to get ahead at the expense of others?

Like a snake that doesn’t hear the charmer, the wicked do not hear God.

Punishment of the wicked:
The lion will lose its fangs
Like water, they’ll flow away.
Their arrows will be blunt.
The snail will melt away.
The child will be stillborn.

The reward of the righteous:
Gladness.
They will be avenged.
They will bathe their feet in the blood of the wicked.
All men will know that God judges fairly.
