Psalm 112

1    Praise ye the Lord. The man is bless’d

          that fears the Lord aright,

     He who in his commandements

          doth greatly take delight.

2    His seed and offspring powerful

          shall be the earth upon:

     Of upright men blessed shall be

          the generation.

3    Riches and wealth shall ever be

          within his house in store;

     And his unspotted righteousness

          endures for evermore.

4    Unto the upright light doth rise,

          though he in darkness be:

     Compassionate, and merciful,

          and righteous, is he.

5    A good man doth his favour shew,

          and doth to others lend:

     He with discretion his affairs

          will guide unto the end.

6    Surely there is not any thing

          that ever shall him move:

     The righteous man’s memorial

          shall everlasting prove.

7    When he shall evil tidings hear,

          he shall not be afraid:

     His heart is fix’d, his confidence

          upon the Lord is stay’d.

8    His heart is firmly stablished,

          afraid he shall not be,

     Until upon his enemies

          he his desire shall see.

9    He hath dispers’d, giv’n to the poor;

          his righteousness shall be

     To ages all; with honour shall

          his horn be raised high.

10   The wicked shall it see, and fret,

          his teeth gnash, melt away:

     What wicked men do most desire

          shall utterly decay.

Ekklesia Muskogee is a reformed baptist church that gathers for worship in Muskogee, Oklahoma. We confess the 1689 second London baptist confession of faith. We affirm the five solas of the Reformation as well as the doctrines of grace (otherwise known as the five points of Calvinism), and each of our pastors would not be ashamed to be called a Calvinist. We are a church led by elders, of which there is a plurality (also called pastors and overseers in the Scriptures). Our mission is to make disciples, love cities, and plant churches.
