Psalm 111

1The Psalmist by his example inciteth others to praise God for his glorious and gracious works. 10The fear of God is the source of true wisdom.

1 Praisea ye the Lord. 1I will praise the Lord with my whole heart, 2in the assembly of the upright, and in the congregation.

2 The 1works of the Lord are great, 2sought out of all them that have pleasure therein.

3 1His work is honourable and glorious: and 2his righteousness endureth for ever.

4 He 1hath made his wonderful works to be remembered: 2the Lord is gracious and full of compassion.

5 He 1hath given ameat unto them that fear him: 2he will ever be mindful of his covenant.

6 He 1hath shewed his people the power of his works, that he may give them the heritage of the heathen.

7 The 1works of his hands are verity and judgment; 2all his commandments are sure.

8 They astand fast for ever and ever, and are done 1in truth and uprightness.

9 1He sent redemption unto his people: 2he hath commanded his covenant for ever: 3holy and reverend is his name.

10 1The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: 2a agood understanding have all they bthat do his commandments: 3his praise endureth for ever.
