Psalm 112 is the 112th psalm from the Book of Psalms. Just like Psalm 111, it is arranged alphabetically. This Psalm is numbered as Psalm 111 in Greek Septuagint and Latin Vulgate. It is usually known by its opening phrase Beatus vir, under which title it is included in numerous musical settings such as Claudio Monteverdi's 1640 Selva morale e spirituale, also known as the Vespers of 1640; Vivaldi's 'Beatus Vir', the third movements of Mozart's Vesperae de Dominica (K. 321) and Vesperae de confessore (K. 339); and Górecki's Beatus Vir.

  1. Beatus vir, qui timet Dominum, in mandatis ejus volet nimis.
  2. Potens in terra erit semen ejus, generatio rectorum benedicetur.
  3. Gloria et divitiae in domo ejus, et iustitia ejus manet in saeculum saeculi.
  4. Exortum est in tenebris lumen rectis, misericors et miserator et iustus.
  5. Iucundus homo, qui miseretur et commodat, disponet res suas in judicio,
  6. quia in aeternum non commovebitur. In memoria aeterna erit iustus,
  7. ab auditione mala non timebit. Paratum cor ejus, sperare in Domino,
  8. non commovebitur, donec despiciat inimicos suos.
  9. Dispersit dedit pauperibus; justitia ejus manet in saeculum saeculi, cornu ejus exaltabitur in gloria.
  10. Peccator videbit et irascetur, dentibus suis fremet et tabescet. Desiderium peccatorum peribit.
