Psalms 111

1Praise the  Lord.
Hebrew Hallelu Yah

I will extol the  Lord with all my heart
in the council of the upright and in the assembly.
2Great are the works of the  Lord;
they are pondered by all who delight in them.
3Glorious and majestic are his deeds,
and his righteousness endures for ever.
4He has caused his wonders to be remembered;
the  Lord is gracious and compassionate.
5He provides food for those who fear him;
he remembers his covenant for ever.
6He has shown his people the power of his works,
giving them the lands of other nations.
7The works of his hands are faithful and just;
all his precepts are trustworthy.
8They are established for ever and ever,
enacted in faithfulness and uprightness.
9He provided redemption for his people;
he ordained his covenant for ever –
holy and awesome is his name.
10The fear of the  Lord is the beginning of wisdom;
all who follow his precepts have good understanding.
To him belongs eternal praise.
