Blessed is the man who makes the LORD his trust, who does not look to the proud, to those who turn aside to false gods.
How blessed is the man who has made the LORD his trust, And has not turned to the proud, nor to those who lapse into falsehood.
Oh, the joys of those who trust the LORD, who have no confidence in the proud, or in those who worship idols.
Blessed are you who give yourselves over to GOD, turn your backs on the world's "sure thing," ignore what the world worships;
Happy is the man who has faith in the Lord, and does not give honour to the men of pride or to those who are turned away to deceit.
Happy are those who make the LORD their trust, who do not turn to the proud, to those who go astray after false gods.
Blessed is that man who makes the LORD his trust, And does not respect the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
