PSALMS - Chapter 147

1 - Praise ye the LORD: for it is good to sing praises unto our God; for it is pleasant; and praise is comely.
2 - The LORD doth build up Jerusalem: he gathereth together the outcasts of Israel.
3 - He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
4 - He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.
5 - Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.
6 - The LORD lifteth up the meek: he casteth the wicked down to the ground.
7 - Sing unto the LORD with thanksgiving; sing praise upon the harp unto our God:
8 - Who covereth the heaven with clouds, who prepareth rain for the earth, who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains.
9 - He giveth to the beast his food, and to the young ravens which cry.
10 - He delighteth not in the strength of the horse: he taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man.
11 - The LORD taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy.
12 - Praise the LORD, O Jerusalem; praise thy God, O Zion.
13 - For he hath strengthened the bars of thy gates; he hath blessed thy children within thee.
14 - He maketh peace in thy borders, and filleth thee with the finest of the wheat.
15 - He sendeth forth his commandment upon earth: his word runneth very swiftly.
16 - He giveth snow like wool: he scattereth the hoarfrost like ashes.
17 - He casteth forth his ice like morsels: who can stand before his cold?
18 - He sendeth out his word, and melteth them: he causeth his wind to blow, and the waters flow.
19 - He sheweth his word unto Jacob, his statutes and his judgments unto Israel.
20 - He hath not dealt so with any nation: and as for his judgments, they have not known them. Praise ye the LORD.
