The Desire of the Wicked Will Perish

Light dawns in the darkness for the upright;
he is gracious, merciful, and righteous. 
It is well with the man who deals generously and lends;
who conducts his affairs with justice. 
For the righteous will never be moved;
he will be remembered forever. 
He is not afraid of bad news;
his heart is firm, trusting in the Lord. 
His heart is steady; 
he will not be afraid,
until he looks in triumph on his adversaries. 
He has distributed freely; 
he has given to the poor;
his righteousness endures forever;
his horn is exalted in honor. 
The wicked man sees it and is angry;
he gnashes his teeth and melts away;
the desire of the wicked will perish!  (Psalm 112:4-10. ESV.)
