-Theme: Awe, fear, reverence for the LORD is the beginning of wisdom. Great, splendid, majestic, enduring, gracious, compassionate, powerful, holy, and awesome are the works of the LORD, and His provision is manifold. His redemption is for His believing people, and He has ordained His covenant (promise) forever.
-Historical Insight: This is a familiar sounding Psalm with an anonymous author to be sung in the congregation of the righteous.
-*Application* All that God does is good and should be well-received by His people. The question for us is this: do we delight in His ways and commandments? If we do with great diligence and study, we will acquire a great understanding as well as His promises for redemption (Psalm 111:2, 9-10). He is true and just, and all His precepts are sure (‘aman- firm, faithful, trustworthy, established, confirmed, Psalm 111:7). Fear Him and you need not fear anything else. Your wisdom will germinate and grow. Put your stake in His plan, and rest in His will. His praise endures forever (Psalm 111:10)!
