PSALMS · Chapter 147
147:1 Praise all of you the LORD: for it is good to sing praises unto
our God; for it is pleasant; and praise is comely.
147:2 The LORD does build 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 tells the number of the stars; he calls them all by their names.
147:5 Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.
147:6 The LORD lifts up the meek: he casts the wicked down to the ground.
147:7 Sing unto the LORD with thanksgiving; sing praise upon the harp unto our God:
147:8 Who covers the heaven with clouds, who prepares rain for the earth, who makes grass to grow upon the mountains.
147:9 He gives to the beast his food, and to the young ravens which cry.
147:10 He delights not in the strength of the horse: he takes not pleasure in the legs of a man.
147:11 The LORD takes pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy.
147:12 Praise the LORD, O Jerusalem; praise your God, O Zion.
147:13 For he has strengthened the bars of your gates; he has blessed your children within you.
147:14 He makes peace in your borders, and fills you with the finest of the wheat.
147:15 He sends forth his commandment upon earth: his word runs very swiftly.
147:16 He gives snow like wool: he scatters the hoarfrost 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 unto Jacob, his statutes and his judgments unto Israel.
147:20 He has not dealt so with any nation: and as for his judgments, they have not known them. Praise all of you the LORD.
