Quote: Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel

Psalms 112: 4 (whole Psalm listed below for context)

1 Shout praises to the Lord!
The Lord blesses everyone
who worships him and gladly
obeys his teachings.
Their descendants will have
great power in the land,
because the Lord blesses
all who do right.
They will get rich and prosper
and will always be remembered
for their fairness.
They will be so kind
    and merciful and good,
that they will be a light
in the dark
    for others
    who do the right thing.

Life will go well for those
who freely lend
and are honest in business.
They won’t ever be troubled,
and the kind things they do
will never be forgotten.
Bad news won’t bother them;
they have decided
to trust the Lord.
They are dependable
and not afraid,
and they will live to see
their enemies defeated.
They will always be remembered
and greatly praised,
because they were kind
and freely gave to the poor.
10 When evil people see this,
they angrily bite their tongues
and disappear.
They will never get
what they really want.

(Contemporary English Version – CEV)
