Psalm 147
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1Praise YAH! For [it is] good to praise our God, "" For pleasant—lovely [is] praise.

2YHWH [is] building Jerusalem, "" He gathers the driven away of Israel.

3Who is giving healing to the broken of heart, "" And is binding up their griefs.

4Appointing the number of the stars, "" He gives names to all of them.

5Our Lord [is] great, and abundant in power, "" There is no narration of His understanding.

6YHWH is causing the meek to stand, "" Making the wicked low to the earth.

7Answer to YHWH with thanksgiving, "" Sing to our God with a harp.

8Who is covering the heavens with clouds, "" Who is preparing rain for the earth, "" Who is causing grass to spring up [on] mountains,

9Giving to the beast its food, "" To the young of the ravens that call.

10He does not delight in the might of the horse, "" He is not pleased in the legs of a man.

11YHWH is pleased with those fearing Him, "" With those waiting for His kindness.

12Glorify, O Jerusalem, YHWH, "" Praise your God, O Zion.

13For He strengthened the bars of your gates, "" He has blessed your sons in your midst.

14Who is making your border peace, "" He satisfies you [with] the fat of wheat.

15Who is sending forth His saying [on] earth, "" His word runs very speedily.

16Who is giving snow like wool, "" He scatters hoarfrost as ashes.

17Casting forth His ice like morsels, "" Who stands before His cold?

18He sends forth His word and melts them, "" He causes His wind to blow—the waters flow.

19Declaring His words to Jacob, "" His statutes and His judgments to Israel.

20He has not done so to any nation, "" As for judgments, they have not known them. Praise YAH!
