Psalm 112: Praise for the Just

Psalm 112: Praise for the Just. For Remaining Steadfast in the Praise of God.

A call to offer continual sacrifice of praise to God, who cares for the weak and lowly. Although He is the Most High God, yet He kindly condescends to come to the aid of the poor and the needy.
