8 His heart is steady; he will not be afraid,
until he looks in triumph on his adversaries.
9 He has w distributed freely; he has given to the poor;
his righteousness endures forever;
his x horn is exalted in honor.
10 The wicked man sees it and is angry;
he y gnashes his teeth and z melts away;
a the desire of the wicked will perish!
