Psalm 147
A Faithful Version

1O praise the LORD, for it is good to sing praises to our God, for praise is pleasant and becoming.

2The LORD builds up Jerusalem; He gathers together the outcasts of Israel.

3He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.

4He counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by their names.

5Great is our LORD and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite.

6The LORD lifts up the meek; He casts the wicked down to the ground.

7Sing unto the LORD with thanksgiving; sing praises upon the lyres unto our God,

8Who covers the heavens with clouds, who prepares rain for the earth, who makes grass to grow upon the mountains.

9He gives the beasts their food and to the young ravens which cry.

10He delights not in the strength of the horse; He takes no pleasure in the legs of a man.

11The LORD takes pleasure in those who fear Him, who hope in His steadfast love.

12Glorify the LORD, O Jerusalem; praise your God, O Zion,

13For He has made the bars of your gates strong; He has blessed your children within you.

14He makes peace within your borders and fills you with the finest of the wheat.

15He sends forth His commandment upon earth; His word runs very swiftly.

16He gives snow like wool; He scatters the hoarfrost like ashes.

17He casts forth His ice like crumbs. Who can stand before His cold?

18He sends out His word and melts them; He causes His wind to blow, and the waters flow.

19He declares His word unto Jacob, His statutes and His ordinances unto Israel.

20He has not done so with any other nation; and as for his ordinances, they have not known them. O praise the LORD!
