Psalm 111

In Praise of the Lord

1Praise the Lord!

With all my heart I will thank the Lord

in the assembly of his people.

2How wonderful are the things the Lord does!

All who are delighted with them want to understand them.

3All he does is full of honor and majesty;

his righteousness is eternal.

4The Lord does not let us forget his wonderful actions;

he is kind and merciful.

5He provides food for those who honor him;

he never forgets his covenant.

6He has shown his power to his people

by giving them the lands of foreigners.

7In all he does he is faithful and just;

all his commands are dependable.

8They last for all time;

they were given in truth and righteousness.

9He set his people free

and made an eternal covenant with them.

Holy and mighty is he!

10 The way to become wise is to honor the Lord;

he gives sound judgment to all who obey his commands.

He is to be praised forever.
