Psalm 111 starts with “Praise Yah!” What better way to start a praise offering when you are around other people. Yahweh continues his righteousness forever. He’s merciful and compassionate. He allows us to wake up and enjoy our families, eat good meals, and make an honest living for ourselves. He protects us daily from dangers we know about and didn’t know about. He allows us a chance to turn away from evil and grow in our knowledge of Him. He is wonderful to us and we ought to have enough common sense to hold Him in high esteem. Thank you our King and God forever.

Yahweh is Merciful & Compassionate
I will wholeheartedly give thanks to you Yahweh in the council of the upright and in the assembly.
Your deeds Yahweh are great and greatly desired by all who enjoy them. Your work is full of majesty and splendor, and your righteousness continues forever. You gained renown for your wonders.
Yahweh, you are merciful and compassionate. You give food to those who fear you. You remember your covenant forever. You show your people how powerfully you work by giving them the nations as their heritage.
The works of your hands are truth and justice; all your precepts can be trusted. They have been established forever and ever, to be carried out truly and honestly.
You sent redemption to your people and decreed that your covenant should last forever. Your name is holy and fearsome — the first and foremost point of wisdom is the fear of you Yahweh; all those living by it gain good common sense.
Your praise stands forever.
