THE *BOOK OF
Psalm 111 ©
The prophet exhorts all people, by his example, to praise God, relating the gloriousness of His works, and exhorting everyone to the practice of piety.
PRAISE ye the LORD. I will praise the LORD with my whole heart, 1in the assembly of the upright, and in the congregation.
The works of the LORD are great, 2sought out 3of all them that have pleasure therein.
4His work 5is honourable and glorious: and his righteousness endureth for ever.
He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered: the LORD is gracious and full of compassion.
He hath given 6meat unto them that fear him: he will ever be mindful 7of his covenant.
He hath shewed his people the power of his works, that he may give them 8the heritage of the heathen.
The works of his hands 9are verity and judgment; all 10his commandments are sure.
They 11stand fast for ever and ever, and are done in truth and uprightness.
He sent redemption unto his people: he hath 12commanded his covenant for 13ever: holy and reverend is his name.
The fear of the LORD is 14the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do 15his commandments: 16his praise endureth for ever.
