Psalm 111 Acrostic

1         Praise the Lord!


.          Always I will extol the Lord with all my heart

.          Before the council of the upright and in the assembly.

2         Certainly the works of the Lord are great,

.          Delighting those who ponder them.

3         Eternally glorious and majestic are his deeds;

.          Forever his righteousness endures.

4         God has caused his wonders to be remembered.

.          How gracious and compassionate the Lord is—

5         Insuring that those who fear him have food,

.          Justly remembering his covenant forever.

6         Knowing him, his people see the power of his works;

.          Lands of other nations he gives into their hands.

7         Moreover, the works of his hands are faithful and just;

.          Not one of his precepts is untrustworthy.

8         Oh, how steadfast they are, forever and ever,

.          Proven in faithfulness and uprightness!

9         Quickly he provided redemption for his people;

.          Righteously he ordained his covenant forever—

.          Surely his name is holy and awesome!

10       The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom

.         Understanding is given to all following his precepts.

.         Very truly, eternal praise belongs to him.
