Amplified Bible

Psalm 111

The Lord Praised for His Goodness.

1Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!)
I will give thanks to the Lord with all my heart,
In the company of the upright and in the congregation.

Great are the works of the Lord,
Studied by all those who delight in them.

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

He has made His wonderful acts to be remembered;
The Lord is gracious and merciful and full of loving compassion.

He has given food to those who fear Him [with awe-inspired reverence];
He will remember His covenant forever.

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


The works of His hands are truth and [absolute] justice;
All His precepts are sure (established, reliable, trustworthy).

They are upheld forever and ever;
They are done in [absolute] truth and uprightness.

He has sent redemption to His people;
He has ordained His covenant forever;
Holy and awesome is His name—[inspiring reverence and godly fear].
10 
The [reverent] fear of the Lord is the beginning (the prerequisite, the absolute essential, the alphabet) of wisdom;
A good understanding and a teachable heart are possessed by all those who do the will of the Lord;
His praise endures forever.
