The Hallelujah of Messiah and His members in reviewing the past 

We are often influenced by example, especially by great men. David, by example, incites and excites us to wholeheartedly praise the Lord. 

The excellences, majesty and works of God are set forth, and are of such greatness and wonder that they should be sought out and investigated by them who fear Him. His Name will be reverenced as a consequence, but also because redemption comes from Him, and that by covenant. The wise ones are those who fear the Lord, not with a cringing, craven obeisance, but with a reverential regard and honour. Such wisdom springs from the understanding of His word, and the practising of it.

Psalm 111

 1  Praise ye the Lord: with my whole heart
       I will God's praise declare,
    Where the assemblies of the just
       and congregations are.

 2  The whole works of the Lord our God
       are great above all measure,
    Sought out they are of ev'ry one
       that doth therein take pleasure.

 3  His work most honourable is,
       most glorious and pure,
    And his untainted righteousness
       for ever doth endure.

 4  His works most wonderful he hath
       made to be thought upon:
    The Lord is gracious, and he is
       full of compassion.

 5  He giveth meat unto all those
       that truly do him fear;
    And evermore his covenant
       he in his mind will bear.

 6  He did the power of his works
       unto his people show,
    When he the heathen's heritage
       upon them did bestow.

 7  His handy-works are truth and right;
       all his commands are sure:
 8  And, done in truth and uprightness,
       they evermore endure.

 9  He sent redemption to his folk;
       his covenant for aye
    He did command: holy his name
       and rev'rend is alway.

10  Wisdom's beginning is God's fear:
       good understanding they
    Have all that his commands fulfill:
       his praise endures for aye.
