Psalm 111 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

Psalm 111

Praise ye the Lord.

I will praise the Lord with my whole heart,
in the assembly of the upright, and in the congregation.
The works of the Lord are great,
sought out of all them that have pleasure therein.
His work is honourable and glorious:
and his righteousness endureth for ever.
He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered:
the Lord is gracious and full of compassion.
He hath given meat unto them that fear him:
he will ever be mindful of his covenant.
He hath shewed his people the power of his works,
that he may give them the heritage of the heathen.
The works of his hands are verity and judgment;
all his commandments are sure.
They stand fast for ever and ever,
and are done in truth and uprightness.
He sent redemption unto his people:
he hath commanded his covenant for ever:
holy and reverend is his name.
10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom:
a good understanding have all they that do his commandments:
his praise endureth for ever.

Praise the Lord.[b]

I will extol the Lord with all my heart
    in the council of the upright and in the assembly.

Great are the works of the Lord;
