Characteristics of God in the Psalms
Through the Characteristics of God study, we identified about 70 characteristics of God. These characteristics are shown throughout the Bible, but one of the best places to learn about the characteristics of God is in the Psalms. Occasionally, we will add a psalm to our list to keep us continually centered on God.
Here is the Characteristics of God table for you to print or look at as you read the psalm.
For our last week focusing on thanksgiving, I chose Psalm 111.
1 Praise the Lord.
I will extol the Lord with all my heart
in the council of the upright and in the assembly.
2 Great are the works of the Lord;
they are pondered by all who delight in them.
3 Glorious and majestic are his deeds,
and his righteousness endures forever.
4 He has caused his wonders to be remembered;
the Lord is gracious and compassionate.
5 He provides food for those who fear him;
he remembers his covenant forever.
6 He has shown his people the power of his works,
giving them the lands of other nations.
7 The works of his hands are faithful and just;
all his precepts are trustworthy.
8 They are established for ever and ever,
enacted in faithfulness and uprightness.
9 He provided redemption for his people;
he ordained his covenant forever—
holy and awesome is his name.
10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom;
all who follow his precepts have good understanding.
To him belongs eternal praise.
