4 For the upright, a light has risen up in the darkness. He is merciful and compassionate and just.
5 Pleasing is the man who shows mercy and lends. He will order his words with judgment.
6 For he will not be disturbed in eternity.
7 The just one will be an everlasting memorial. He will not fear a report of disasters. His heart is prepared to hope in the Lord.
8 His heart has been confirmed. He will not be disturbed, until he looks down upon his enemies.
9 He has distributed, he has given to the poor. His justice shall remain from age to age. His horn shall be exalted in glory.
7 Break your bread with the hungry, and lead the destitute and the homeless into your house. When you see someone naked, cover him, and do not despise your own flesh.
8 Then your light will break forth like the morning, and your health will improve quickly, and your justice will go before your face, and the glory of the Lord will gather you up.
9 Then you will call, and the Lord will heed; you will cry out, and he will say, "Here I am," if you take away the chains from your midst, and cease to point your finger and to speak what is not beneficial.
10 When you pour out your life for the hungry, and you satisfy the afflicted soul, then your light will rise up in darkness, and your darkness will be like the midday.
