Psalm 111:1-2 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Psalm 111[a]

Praise of God for Goodness to Israel

Hallelujah!

I will praise the Lord with all my heart
    in the assembled congregation of the upright.[b]
Great are the works of the Lord,
    studied by all who delight in them.

Footnotes:

  1. Psalm 111 A Temple singer (Ps 111:1) tells how God is revealed in Israel’s history (Ps 111:2–10). The deeds reveal God’s very self, powerful, merciful, faithful. The poem is an acrostic, each verse beginning with a successive letter of the Hebrew alphabet.
  2. 111:1 In the assembled congregation of the upright: in the Temple, cf. Ps 149:1.
