Psalm 111

Psalm 111:1
111:1 {a} Praise ye the LORD. I will praise the LORD with [my]
      whole heart, in the assembly of the upright, and [in] the
      congregation.

      (a) The prophet declares that he will praise God both
          privately and openly, and that from the heart, as he
          who consecrates himself wholly and only to God.

Psalm 111:2
111:2 The works of the LORD [are] {b} great, sought out of all
      them that have pleasure therein.

      (b) He shows that God's works are a sufficient reason for
          us to praise him, but chiefly his benefits toward his
          Church.

Psalm 111:5
111:5 He hath given {c} meat unto them that fear him: he will
      ever be mindful of his covenant.

      (c) God has given to his people all that was necessary for
          them and will do so even for his covenant's sake, and
          in this sense the Hebrew word is taken in
          Proverbs 30:8,31:15.

Psalm 111:7
111:7 The {d} works of his hands [are] verity and judgment; all
      his commandments [are] sure.

      (d) As God proposed to take care of his Church so in
          effect does he declare himself just and true in the
          government of the same.

Psalm 111:10
111:10 {e} The fear of the LORD [is] the beginning of wisdom: a
       good understanding have all they that {f} do [his
       commandments]: his praise endureth for ever.

       (e) They only are wise who fear God and none have
           understanding but they who obey the word.
       (f) That is, his commandment as in Psalm 111:7.
