Psalms 111:2

The works of the LORD are great, sought out of all them that have pleasure in them.
Read Chapter 111

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
"These are the great works of the Lord, sought out unto all His wills" (ver. 2): through which mercy forsaketh none who confesseth, no man's wickedness is unpunished. ...Let man choose for himself what he listeth: the works of the Lord are not so constituted, that the creature, having free discretion allowed him, should transcend the will of the Creator, even though he act contrary to His will. God willeth not that thou shouldest sin; for He forbiddeth it: yet if thou hast sinned, imagine not that the man hath done what he willed, and that hath happened to God which He willed not. For as He would that man would not sin, so would He spare the sinner, that he may return and live; He so willeth finally to punish him who persisteth in his sin, that the rebellious cannot escape the power of justice. Thus whatever choice thou hast made, the Almighty will not be at a loss to fulfil His will concerning thee. ...

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Sought out. Exquisite, or designed for our benefit. He saw that all was good, (Genesis i. 31.) though He could have made them better. (Calmet)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. - 2 Peter 1:20
