Psalm 147

Psalms: 147

Praise to the Lord the Almighty.  Psalm 147a(v146)

1Praise the LORD!
For it is good to sing praises to our God;
for he is gracious, and a song of praise is seemly.
2The LORD builds up Jerusalem;
he gathers the outcasts of Israel.
3He heals the brokenhearted,
and binds up their wounds.
4He determines the number of the stars,
he gives to all of them their names.
5Great is our LORD, and abundant in power;
his understanding is beyond measure.
6The LORD lifts up the downtrodden,
he casts the wicked to the ground.

7Sing to the LORD with thanksgiving;
make melody to our God upon the lyre!
8He covers the heavens with clouds,
he prepares rain for the earth,
he makes grass grow upon the hills.
9He gives to the beasts their food,
and to the young ravens which cry.
10His delight is not in the strength of the horse,
nor his pleasure in the legs of a man;
11but the LORD takes pleasure in those who fear him,
in those who hope in his steadfast love.

Praise to the Lord the Almighty.  Psalm 147b(v147)

12Praise the LORD, O Jerusalem!
Praise your God, O Zion!
13For he strengthens the bars of your gates;
he blesses your sons within you.
14He makes peace in your borders;
he fills you with the finest of the wheat.
15He sends forth his command to the earth;
his word runs swiftly.
16He gives snow like wool;
he scatters hoarfrost like ashes.
17He casts forth his ice like morsels;
who can stand before his cold?
18He sends forth his word, and melts them;
he makes his wind blow, and the waters flow.
19He declares his word to Jacob,
his statutes and ordinances to Israel.
20He has not dealt thus with any other nation;
they do not know his ordinances.
Praise the LORD!
