Psalm 111:1 Parallel
Commentary
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

Praise ye the Lord - Margin, "Hallelujah." See Psalm 106:1.

I will praise the Lord with my whole heart - With undivided affections; holding back nothing. I will allow nothing to be in my heart that would interfere with the fullness of praise; no coldness or dividedness of affection; no love for other things that would deaden my love for God; no suspicion respecting him that would chill my ardor; no unbelief that would drag me down to earth, while the language of my lips ascended to God. See the notes at Psalm 86:12.

In the assembly of the upright - With the righteous when they are gathered together for public worship.

And in the congregation - See Psalm 22:22, Psalm 22:25; Psalm 66:13; Psalm 89:5.
