Psalms 111

Verses 1-10

Psalms 111:0

Hallelujah! He Has Done It

This is the first Hallelujah Psalm, following Psalms 110:1-7 , in which He is praised for what He is and for what He has done. It is a perfect alphabetical Psalm: not a letter of the Hebrew alphabet is missing. It shows the perfect One and the perfect praise He will receive when He is on the throne as the King-Priest. The next Psalm is also perfect in its alphabetical character. Both Psalms have 22 lines, each prefixed by a letter of the Hebrew alphabet in their right order. All then will be order and all human speech can say will be said in praise of Him who has done it. Read the Psalm and see how His work in redemption is praised. He has now sent redemption to His people. Psalms 111:9 is quoted in Zacharias’ song, Luke 1:68 , showing that in faith he too looked forward to the time of the kingdom.
