Psalms 1111 Praise the Lord!
I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart,
in the assembly of the godly and the congregation.
2 The Lord’s deeds are great,
eagerly awaited ▼
▼ Heb “sought out.”by all who desire them.
3 His work is majestic and glorious, ▼
and his faithfulness endures ▼
▼ Or “stands.”forever.
4 He does ▼ amazing things that will be remembered; ▼
▼ Heb “a memorial he had made for his amazing deeds.”
the Lord is merciful and compassionate.
5 He gives ▼ food to his faithful followers; ▼
▼ Heb “those who fear him.”
he always remembers his covenant. ▼
6 He announced that he would do mighty deeds for his people,
giving them a land that belonged to other nations. ▼
▼ Heb “the strength of his deeds he proclaimed to his people, to give to them an inheritance of nations.”
7 His acts are characterized by ▼
▼ Heb “the deeds of his hands [are].”faithfulness and justice;
all his precepts are reliable. ▼
▼ That is, fair and for man’s good.
8 They are forever firm,
and should be faithfully and properly carried out. ▼
9 He delivered his people; ▼
▼ Heb “redemption he sent for his people.”
he ordained that his covenant be observed forever. ▼
▼ Heb “he commanded forever his covenant.”
His name is holy and awesome.
10 To obey the Lord is the fundamental principle for wise living; ▼
▼ Heb “the beginning of wisdom [is] the fear of the Lord.”
all who carry out his precepts acquire good moral insight. ▼
He will receive praise forever. ▼
▼ Heb “his praise stands forever.”
▼ Psalm 112. This wisdom psalm lists some of the benefits of living a godly life. The psalm is an acrostic. After the introductory call to praise, every poetic line (twenty-two in all) begins with a successive letter of the Hebrew alphabet.
