Psalms 111
1Praise the LORD!
I thank the LORD with all my heart
in the company of those who do right, in the congregation.
2The works of the LORD are magnificent;
they are treasured by all who desire them.
3God’s deeds are majestic and glorious.
God’s righteousness stands forever.
4God is famous for his wondrous works.
The LORD is full of mercy and compassion.
5God gives food to those who honor him.
God remembers his covenant forever.
6God proclaimed his powerful deeds to his people
and gave them what had belonged to other nations.
7God’s handiwork is honesty and justice;
all God’s rules are trustworthy—
8they are established always and forever:
they are fulfilled with truth and right doing.
9God sent redemption for his people;
God commanded that his covenant last forever.
Holy and awesome is God’s name!
10Fear of the LORD is where wisdom begins;
sure knowledge is for all who keep God’s laws.
God’s praise lasts forever!
