Praise ye the Lord (Ps. 112:1) This is a literal translation of the Hebrew phrase hallelu yah. It has come down to us in English in the combined form "hallelujah," which indeed is found in a footnote in the American Standard Version at this point.

A GOOD MAN SHEWETH FAVOUR (Ps. 112:5) The Hebrew phrase thus translated admits of the alternative rendering favored by the Revised Standard Version, "It is well with the man who deals generously."

He hath dispersed ... His Horn Shall Be Exalted (Ps. 112:9) The Hebrew word pazar (disperse), which has the literal meaning of "scatter," was sometimes used, as in this verse, in the sense of "spend money" or "distribute alms." The term literally translated "horn" was often used in Hebrew idiom to represent power or strength. Moffatt's translation has, "He gives to the poor lavishly... he rises to high power and honour."
