Psalm 111:6 The LORD GOD showed the children of Israel the power of HIS works by parting the Red Sea, feeding them manna in the wilderness, and many powerful works.JEHOVAH GOD did this to show his children that they should trust in the LORD their GOD. Don't be as the heathen or as the world,but rather remain holy and righteous. God has the power to give the heritage to HIS children so that they would do righteously with integrity unto what has been entrusted and given.

The fear of Jehovah is the beginning of wisdom. It is not a morbid fear of God, but the fear of displeasing him, and breaking his commandments. If you think about it, those commandments are very wise for us today. For example if people would follow God 's laws on fornication, would we have so many children born out of wedlock? Not knowing their mother or father? Teenage pregnancy? Yes following God 's standards as found in the Bible proves to be wise every time.

Rev. Autrey's comment about verse 9 on 7/26/2014, 5:49am...

Psalm 111 says, 'Praise the Lord! I will thank the Lord with all my heart. ... He has paid a full ransom for his people. He has guaranteed his covenant with them forever. ... ' This is talking about God coming to the earth as Jesus and dying in our pace on the cross. This is how the ransom for us was paid. But the problem is, most people do not believe that Jesus is God. Most people think that he is a lesser being or person. But many are not sure who Jesus is. So I make this point right now. Jesus is God Almighty, and he has come to save us. Don 't be confused by Jesus calling himself the Son Of God. He called himself the Son of Man, too. He did this to idetity himself with both God and man. He was the God Man. In other words, the term Son of God for Jesus is a title he used to identify himself while walking on the earth as a man. Let 's not forget what John said about him in John 1, verse 2. "... And the Word was God. ' And let 's not forget the words of Thomas in the upper room. 'My Lord and my God. ' Yes, God as Jesus has come to save us, and he did this by giving him life as a ransom for many. May God bless you!

Having exhorted others to praise the LORD, the Psalmist announces his own firm intention to offer such praise. Those who tutor others do well to practice what they preach, this divinely inspired stanza of adoration represents an excellent template for our own heartfelt worship. We can recognize the works of the LORD only after we have “sought them out.” The casual appreciation of a flower or a sunset does not constitute true worship. Even the heathen thoughtlessly render glancing acknowledgements of nature’s splendor—but they do not peer persistently into the dazzling radiance of what is to discover its divine cause. They never rise above mere observation to reverence and wonder and praise. Indeed, this Psalm reminds us that those who are given the book of nature and refuse to study it are nevertheless responsible to live by its light. Surely St. Paul knew the meaning of this inspired verse when he wrote, “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.” [Romans 1:21] The Psalmist here calls us to see beyond the things made to the Infinite Person who made them. In the midst of several references to “the works of the LORD,” Israel’s songster declares that “his work (singular) is honorable and glorious.” In this way, we are reminded that all of God’s great ventures, including creation of the universe, the governance of it and the salvation of his chosen people, are threads of the same cloth—a magnificent tapestry by which he displays his honor and glory. The works of the LORD mentioned include not only the “righteous” or moral law by which he governs all things, but also the “compassion” or tender mercy by which he pardons those who have no righteousness of their own. The works enumerated include not only the “meat” our Heavenly Father provides to them that fear him, but also the “covenant” by which they can be assured that the well of his provision will never run dry. We are reminded that even “verity and judgment,” essential elements of the divine nature, become “the works of his hands” as they are translated into “commandments” which stand forever and ever. Oh how the saints must praise the LORD, not only for his world, but for his word. Even as every creature can see and sense the LORD’s might and magnificence in the splendor that is all ‘round, every rational mind and living soul can know of a certainty that God is present in his written revelation, the truth of which is vindicated of all his children. But the Psalmist does not cease his praise there, and neither should we! Having attributed both the beauty of nature and the wisdom of scripture to their Divine Author, he reserves his highest praise for the One True Word of God—Jesus Christ. His poetry rises to prophecy when, a full millennium before the birth of Jesus, he gives praise to the God who “sent redemption to his people.” In summation, the Psalmist praises the LORD’s name, which is “holy and revered forever.” So let saint and sinner rejoice together, knowing that “whosoever shall call upon the name of the LORD shall be saved.” [Romans 10:13] Let all who seek wisdom reverence God’s name. Let all who seek understanding “do his commandments.” Let all who seek happiness enter into that praise which “endureth for ever.” T. Robinson Ahlstrom
