Blessed Is The Man Who Fears The Lord

Praise the Lord! Blessed is the man who fears the Lord, Who delights greatly in His commandments. Psalm 112:1

The psalmist begins with a call to us to praise God, but immediately applies himself to praise the people of God; for whatever glory is acknowledged to be on them it comes from God, and must return to him; as he is their praise, so they are his. We have reason to praise the Lord that there are a people in the world who fear him and serve him, and that they are a happy people, both which are owing entirely to the grace of God. Now here we have,

A description of those who are here pronounced blessed, and to whom these promises are made:

They are well-principled with pious and devout affections. Those have the privileges of God's subjects, not who cry, Lord, Lord, but who are indeed well affected to his government. They are such as stand in awe of God and have a constant reverence for his majesty and deference to his will. The happy man is he that fears the Lord. - Matthew Henry
