Psalm 111

We read this psalm in church today.  It resonated with me, and I wanted to share it with you:
1 Praise the Lord!

I will thank the Lord with all my heart
as I meet with His godly people.
2 How amazing are the deeds of the Lord!
All who delight in Him should ponder them.
3 Everything He does reveals His glory and majesty.
His righteousness never fails.
4 He causes us to remember His wonderful works.
How gracious and merciful is our Lord!
5 He gives food to those who fear Him;
He always remembers His covenant.
6 He has shown his great power to His people
by giving them the lands of other nations.
7 All He does is just and good,
and all His commandments are trustworthy.
8 They are forever true,
to be obeyed faithfully and with integrity.
9 He has paid a full ransom for His people.
He has guaranteed His covenant with them forever.
What a holy, awe-inspiring name He has!
10 Fear of the Lord is the foundation of true wisdom.
All who obey His commandments will grow in wisdom.

Praise him forever!


  1. Thank you for sharing this. I was just curious which version of the Bible you use, mine is the King James version and even though yours conveys basically the same meaning the wording is different.

  2. Hi Anna,
    I usually use New King James (my Bible is NKJV) but I liked this wording from the New Living Translation.
    I enjoy looking through different translations and gleaning from each. Wouldn't it be amazing, though, to be able to understand the Bible in the original languages in which it was penned?
