By my verse-by-verse reading of the cited psalm, I found the following qualities that were explicitly or implicitly ascribed to God by the psalmist:

-- Just
-- Righteous
-- Listens to honest prayer
-- Vindicates/helps/protects the righteous
-- Probes people's hearts/thoughts
-- Has great love for those who follow Him
-- Distinguishes between the righteous and the wicked 
-- Actively opposes/defeats the enemies of His followers
-- As an eternal Being, governs eternal rewards that go beyond 
this life and world
-- Will eventually be beheld by His followers
