Psalms 111 - NIV

1 [a]

Praise the Lord.[b]
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.
