The Psalmist praises the wisdom of the Lord and his gracious treatment of Israel. He recounts the ways God has been generous to His people. The Psallm has only 10 verses, but he manages to touch on elements of history and the success Israel enjoyed in the past. This Psalm is both poetic and inspiring. Many of the phrases are memoraable and uplisting for the reader. This Psalm is only 10 verses long, but it contains one often quoted verse:The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. A good understanding have all they that do his commandments; his praise endureth forever.
This Psalm gives instructions on how to be blessed. He begins with Praise and translates "Hallelu Yah" as Praise the Lord. Psalms 112 is another acrostic. It loses some of the art and excellence when it is translated without his literary devise.
The psalmist lists the benefits of obedience to the Lord: The land, Redemption, fellowship with Himself, deliverance, and eternity. This is not the longest psalm, but it covers many of the elements we value. We can read it and rejoice in its truth.
