Psalm 147
Douay-Rheims Bible

It is Good to Sing Praises to Our God

(Romans 3:1-8; Hebrews 10:1-18)

1{146:1}Alleluia. Praise ye the Lord, because psalm is good: to our God be joyful and comely praise.

2{146:2}The Lord buildeth up Jerusalem: he will gather together the dispersed of Israel.

3{146:3}Who healeth the broken of heart, and bindeth up their bruises.

4{146:4}Who telleth the number of the stars: and calleth them all by their names.

5{146:5}Great is our Lord, and great is his power: and of his wisdom there is no number.

6{146:6}The Lord lifteth up the meek, and bringeth the wicked down even to the ground.

7{146:7}Sing ye to the Lord with praise: sing to our God upon the harp.

8{146:8}Who covereth the heaven with clouds, and prepareth rain for the earth. Who maketh grass to grow on the mountains, and herbs for the service of men.

9{146:9}Who giveth to beasts their food: and to the young ravens that call upon him.

10{146:10}He shall not delight in the strength of the horse: nor take pleasure in the legs of a man.

11{146:11}The Lord taketh pleasure in them that fear him: and in them that hope in his mercy.

12Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem: praise thy God, O Sion.

13Because he hath strengthened the bolts of thy gates, he hath blessed thy children within thee.

14Who hath placed peace in thy borders: and filleth thee with the fat of corn.

15Who sendeth forth his speech to the earth: his word runneth swiftly.

16Who giveth snow like wool: scattereth mists like ashes.

17He sendeth his crystal like morsels: who shall stand before the face of his cold?

18He shall send out his word, and shall melt them: his wind shall blow, and the waters shall run.

19Who declareth his word to Jacob: his justices and his judgments to Israel.

20He hath not done in like manner to every nation: and his judgments he hath not made manifest to them. Alleluia.
