Jehovah’s Praiseworthiness


     Jehovah’s praiseworthiness is like a brilliant diamond with an endless number of facets.  It is a bottomless well which can never be exhausted.  In Psalm 145:10-16, David states four facets of Jehovah’s utter praiseworthiness when he wrote, “All Your works shall praise You, O Lord, and Your saints shall bless You.  They shall speak of the glory of Your kingdom and talk of Your power, to make known to the sons of men His mighty acts and the glorious majesty of His kingdom.  Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and Your dominion endures throughout all generations.  The Lord upholds all who fall and raises up all who are bowed down.  The eyes of all look expectantly to You, and You give them their food in due season.  You open Your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing.”

     Jehovah is eternally praiseworthy because of:

  • The glory of His kingdom and power (vv. 11-12).
  • The everlasting nature of His kingdom (v. 13).
  • His support of the fallen and overwhelmed (v. 14).
  • His timely providence (vv. 15-16).

     Because of his meditation upon Jehovah’s praiseworthiness, David determines “My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord” (Psalm 145:21).
