Psalms 111 Commentary - Matthew Henry Commentary on the Whole Bible (Concise)

Chapter 111

The Lord is to be praised for his works.

- The psalmist resolves to praise God himself. Our exhortations and our examples should agree together. He recommends the works of the Lord, as the proper subject, when we are praising him; and the dealings of his providence toward the world, the church, and particular persons. All the works of the Lord are spoken of as one, it is his work; so admirably do all the dispensations of his providence centre in one design. The works of God, humbly and diligently sought into, shall all be found just and holy. God's pardoning sin is the most wonderful of all his works, and ought to be remembered to his glory. He will ever be mindful of his covenant; he has ever been so, and he ever will be so. His works of providence were done according to the truth of the Divine promises and prophecies, and so were verity, or truth; and by him who has a right to dispose of the earth as he pleases, and so are judgment, or righteous: and this holds good ( psalms 111:7-8 ) God's commandments are sure; all have been fulfilled by Christ, and remain with him for a rule of walk and conversation to us. He sent redemption unto his people, out of Egypt at first, and often afterwards; and these were typical of the great redemption, which in the fulness of time was to be wrought out by the Lord Jesus. Here his everlasting righteousness shines forth in union with his boundless mercy. No man is wise who does not fear the Lord; no man acts wisely except as influenced by that fear. This fear will lead to repentance, to faith in Christ, to watchfulness and obedience. Such persons are of a good understanding, however poor, unlearned, or despised.

Psalms 111 Commentary - Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible

PSALM 111

Psalms 111:1-10 . The Psalmist celebrates God's gracious dealings with His people, of which a summary statement is given.

1. Praise ye the Lord--or, Hallelujah ( Psalms 104:35 ). This seems to serve as a title to those of the later Psalms, which, like this, set forth God's gracious government and its blessed fruits. This praise claims the
whole heart--( Psalms 86:12 ), and is rendered publicly.
upright--a title of the true Israel ( Psalms 32:11 ).

2. His works--that is, of providence and grace are
sought--or, carefully studied, by all desiring to know them.

3, 4. honourable and glorious--literally, "honor and majesty," which illustrate His glorious perfections.
righteousness--( Psalms 7:17 , 31:1 ), which He has made memorable by wonders of love and mercy, in supplying the wants of His people according to covenant engagements.

6-8. His power was shown especially in giving them the promised land, and His faithfulness and justice thus displayed are, like His precepts, reliable and of permanent obligation.

9. The deliverance He provided accorded to His established covenant. Thus He manifested Himself in the sum of His perfections ( Psalms 20:1 Psalms 20:7 , 22:3 ) worthy of reverence.

10. And hence love and fear of such a God is the chief element of true wisdom (compare Proverbs 1:7 , 9:10 ).
