Psalm 111

111     Praise

            God’s Covenant of Care Is Forever

            9 He has sent redemption to His people;

            He has ordained His covenant forever;

            Holy and awesome is His name.

·         In our meditations and writings on religion there is scope for the exercise of all our ingenuity. Nor is it unlawful for us curiously to arrange in poetical or alphabetical order divine truths as the Psalmist has here done. Only we should avoid silly conceits and puerilities.

·         It is no easy matter to avoid cold affections.

·         Every word of God is pure. Man never so well consults his own temporal and eternal good as when he most exactly conforms his heart and life to Scripture principles.
