Psalms, Chapter 147

   1: Praise ye Jah! for it is good. Sing psalms of our God; for it is pleasant: praise is comely.
   2: Jehovah doth build up Jerusalem: he gathereth the outcasts of Israel.
   3: He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
   4: He counteth the number of the stars; he giveth names to them all.
   5: Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.
   6: Jehovah lifteth up the meek; he abaseth the wicked to the earth.
   7: Sing unto Jehovah with thanksgiving; sing psalms upon the harp unto our God:
   8: Who covereth the heavens with clouds, who prepareth rain for the earth, who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains;
   9: Who giveth to the cattle their food, 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: Jehovah taketh pleasure in those that fear him, in those that hope in his loving-kindness.
   12: Laud Jehovah, 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; he satisfieth thee with the finest of the wheat.
   15: He sendeth forth his oracles to the earth: his word runneth very swiftly.
   16: He giveth snow like wool, scattereth the hoar frost like ashes;
   17: He casteth forth his ice like morsels: who can stand before his cold?
   18: He sendeth his word, and melteth them; he causeth his wind to blow -- the waters flow.
   19: He sheweth his word unto Jacob, his statutes and his judgments unto Israel.
   20: He hath not dealt thus with any nation; and as for [his] judgments, they have not known them. Hallelujah!
