Day 23 — Psalm 111

In praise of the divine attributes


א, I give thanks to Yahweh with all my heart
ב, where the virtuous meet and the people assemble.
ג, The works of Yahweh are sublime,
ד, those who delight in them are right to fix their eyes on them.
ה, Every work that He does is full of glory and majesty,
ו, and His righteousness can never change.
ז, He allows us to commemorate His marvels.
ח, Yahweh is merciful and tenderhearted,
ט, He provides food for those who fear Him,
י, He never forgets His covenant.
כ, He reminds His people of the power that He wields
ל, by giving them the inheritance of the nations.
מ, All that He does is done in faithfulness and justice,
נ, in all ways His precepts are dependable,
ס, ordained to last for ever and ever,
ע, framed in faithfulness and integrity.
פ, Quickly He comes to His people’s rescue,
צ, imposing His covenant once and for all,
ק, so holy His name, commanding our dread.
ר, This fear of Yahweh is the beginning of wisdom,
ש, they have sound sense who practice it.
ת, His praises will be sung for ever.

Next… Psalm 112
