This acrostic poem pairs with the previous psalm, which talks about God primarily. This one focuses more on the man who is godly. Again, I attempted to translate the meaning of each verse into my own words and also have each verse start with the successive letter of the alphabet. Unlike the previous psalm, I decided to make all verses follow a similar pattern. I’m not sure what the Hebrew feels like to read, but when I read the English Standard Version (which I recommend as a reliable version), each verse feels fairly independent. Almost like a list. This made me comfortable rewriting it like I did.

Awe and delight — these are the best attitudes towards God and his commandments. Hallelujah!

Brave, powerful, and successful — these describe his children with integrity!

Countless assets — these he uses to eternally do what he wants.

Dramatic provision, grace, and consistency — this is God!

Every action done with generosity and equality — this makes you succeed in life!

Forever stable and remembered — this you shall be if you live with integrity.

Gloom and doom — these you will not fear when God is your foundation.

Heart patient and resolute — this is what you’ll have waiting for your a day in the sun.

Integrity and generosity — this is the path to eternal importance.

Jabbing disappointment, anger, and frustration — this is what bad men experience in the end.
