Psalm 111 English Standard Version

The LORD's Care for His People

111 1  [1] Praise the Lord! I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart, in the company of the upright, in the congregation. 2  Great are the works of the Lord, studied by all who delight in them. 3  Full of splendor and majesty is his work, and his righteousness endures forever. 4  He has caused his wondrous works to be remembered; the Lord is gracious and merciful. 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, in giving them the inheritance of the nations. 7  The works of his hands are faithful and just; all his precepts are trustworthy; 8  they are established forever and ever, to be performed with faithfulness and uprightness. 9  He sent redemption to his people; he has commanded his covenant forever. Holy and awesome is his name! 10  The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all those who practice it have a good understanding. His praise endures forever!
