Psalm 111[a]


I will give thanks to Yahweh with all my heart
    in the company of decent people and in the congregation.
Yahweh’s deeds are spectacular.
    They should be studied by all who enjoy them.
His work is glorious and majestic.
    His righteousness continues forever.
He has made his miracles unforgettable.
    Yahweh is merciful and compassionate.
He provides food for those who fear him.
    He always remembers his promise.[b]
He has revealed the power of his works to his people
    by giving them the lands of other nations as an inheritance.
His works are done with truth and justice.
    All his guiding principles are trustworthy.
        They last forever and ever.
        They are carried out with truth and decency.
He has sent salvation to his people.
    He has ordered that his promise should continue forever.
    His name is holy and terrifying.
10 The fear of Yahweh is the beginning of wisdom.
    Good sense is shown by everyone who follows God’s guiding principles.
    His praise continues forever.
