Psalms, Chapter 147

147:1 Hallelujah; For it is good to praise our God; For it is pleasant to sing his praise.
147:2 Yahweh builds up Jerusalem; He gathers together the outcasts of Israel.
147:3 He heals the broken in heart, And binds up their wounds.
147:4 He counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by [their] names.
147:5 Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite.
147:6 Yahweh upholds the meek: He brings the wicked down to the ground.
147:7 Sing to Yahweh with thanksgiving; Sing praises on the harp to our God,
147:8 Who covers the heavens with clouds, Who prepares rain for the earth, Who makes grass to grow on the mountains.
147:9 He gives to the beast his food, [And] to the young ravens which cry.
147:10 He does not delight in the strength of the horse: He takes no pleasure in the legs of a man.
147:11 Yahweh takes pleasure in those who fear him, In those who hope in his loving-kindness.
147:12 Praise Yahweh, O Jerusalem; Praise your God, O Zion.
147:13 For he has strengthened the bars of your gates; He has blessed your sons inside you.
147:14 He makes peace in your borders; He fills you with the finest of the wheat.
147:15 He sends out his commandment on earth; His word runs very swiftly.
147:16 He gives snow like wool; He scatters the frost like ashes.
147:17 He casts forth his ice like morsels: Who can stand before his cold?
147:18 He sends out his word, and melts them: He causes his wind to blow, and the waters flow.
147:19 He shows his word to Jacob, His statutes and his ordinances to Israel.
147:20 He has not dealt so with any nation; And as for his ordinances, they have not known them. Hallelujah.
