Psalm 111

1 O praise the Lord. I will praise the Lord with my whole heart:
    in the company of the upright and among the congregation.
2 The works of the Lord are great:
    and studied by all who take delight in them.
3 His deeds are majestic and glorious:
    and his righteousness stands for ever.
4 His marvellous acts have won him a name to be remembered:
    the Lord is gracious and merciful.
5 He gives food to those that fear him:
    he remembers his covenant for ever.
6 He showed his people the power of his acts:
    in giving them the heritage of the heathen.
7 The works of his hands are faithful and just:
    and all his commandments are sure;
8 They stand firm for ever and ever:
    they are done in faithfulness and in truth.
9 He sent redemption to his people, he ordained his covenant for ever:
    holy is his name and worthy to be feared.
10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and of good understanding are those that keep his commandments:
    his praise shall endure for ever.
