Psalms Chapter 111 - New American Standard Bible

1. PRAISE [1] the LORD! I will give thanks to the LORD with all my heart, In the company of the upright and in the assembly.

2. Great are the works of the LORD; They are [2] studied by all who delight in them.

3. [3] Splendid and majestic is His work, And His righteousness endures forever.

4. He has made His [5] wonders [4] to be remembered; The LORD is gracious and compassionate.

5. He has given [7] food to those who [6] fear Him; He will remember His covenant forever.

6. He has made known to His people the power of His works, In giving them the heritage of the nations.

7. The works of His hands are [9] truth and justice; All His precepts are [8] sure.

8. They are upheld forever and ever; They are performed in [10] truth and uprightness.

9. He has sent redemption to His people; He has [12] ordained His covenant forever; Holy and [11] awesome is His name.

10. The [14] fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have all those who [13] do His commandments; His praise endures forever.
