In Anger and with Gnashing Teeth

In anger and with gnashing teeth the wicked see the righteous;  

who rise in darkness as a light and shine with radiant brightness; 

who deal with generosity and always act with justice; 

who fear no evil, freely lend, and always can be trusted. 


The righteous go from strength to strength in steady onward progress; 

In God’s commandments find delight and to the poor give access. 

Their offspring will be mighty in the land and know its blessing.

The reputation of their lives will leave nobody guessing.
