Psalm 111 New International Version

The LORD's Care for His People

111 1  [1]Praise the Lord.[2]I will extol the Lord with all my heart in the council of the upright and in the assembly. 2  Great are the works of the Lord; they are pondered by all who delight in them. 3  Glorious and majestic are his deeds, and his righteousness endures forever. 4  He has caused his wonders to be remembered; the Lord is gracious and compassionate. 5  He provides food for those who fear him; he remembers his covenant forever.

6  He has shown his people the power of his works, giving them the lands of other nations. 7  The works of his hands are faithful and just; all his precepts are trustworthy. 8  They are established for ever and ever, enacted in faithfulness and uprightness. 9  He provided redemption for his people; he ordained his covenant forever- holy and awesome is his name. 10  The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding. To him belongs eternal praise.
