Psalm 111-112 The Passion Translation (TPT)
Celebrate God’s Greatness
111 Shout hallelujah to Yahweh!
May every one of his lovers hear my passionate praise to him,
even among the council of the holy ones.
2 For God’s mighty miracles astound me!
His wonders are so delightfully mysterious
that they leave all who seek them astonished.
3 Everything he does is full of splendor and beauty!
Each miracle demonstrates his eternal perfection.
4 His unforgettable works of surpassing wonder
reveal his grace and tender mercy.
5 He satisfies all who love and trust him,
and he keeps every promise he makes.
6 He reveals mighty power and marvels to his people
by handing them nations as a gift.
7 All God accomplishes is flawless, faithful, and fair,
and his every word proves trustworthy and true.
8 They are steadfast forever and ever,
formed from truth and righteousness.
9 His forever-love paid a full ransom for his people
so that now we’re free to come before Jehovah
to worship his holy and awesome name!
10 Where can wisdom be found? It is born in the fear of God.
Everyone who follows his ways
will never lack his living-understanding.
And the adoration of God will abide throughout eternity!
The Triumph of Faith
112 Shout in celebration of praise to the Lord!
Everyone who loves the Lord and delights in him
will cherish his words and be blessed beyond expectation.
2 Their descendants will be prosperous and influential.
Every generation of his godly lovers will experience his favor.
3 Great blessing and wealth fills the house of the wise,
for their integrity endures forever.
4 Even if darkness overtakes them,
sunrise-brilliance will come bursting through
because they are gracious to others, so tender and true.
5 Life is good for the one who is generous and charitable,
conducting affairs with honesty and truth.
6 Their circumstances will never shake them
and others will never forget their example.
7 They will not live in fear or dread of what may come,
for their hearts are firm, ever secure in their faith.
8 Steady and strong, they will not be afraid,
but will calmly face their every foe
until they all go down in defeat.
9 Never stingy and always generous to those in need,
their lives of influence and honor will never be forgotten,
for they were full of good deeds.
10 But the wicked take one look at a life lived like this
and they grit their teeth in anger, not understanding their bliss.
The wicked slink away speechless in the darkness that falls,
where hope dies and all their dreams fade away to nothing,
nothing at all!
