Psalms 147 (asv)

Psalms 147 (asv)

147:1Praise ye Jehovah;

For it is good to sing praises unto our God;

For it is pleasant, and praise is comely.

147:2Jehovah doth build up Jerusalem;

He gathereth together the outcasts of Israel.

147:3He healeth the broken in heart,

And bindeth up their wounds.

147:4He counteth the number of the stars;

He calleth them all by their names.

147:5Great is our Lord, and mighty in power;

His understanding is infinite.

147:6Jehovah upholdeth the meek:

He bringeth the wicked down to the ground.

147:7Sing unto Jehovah with thanksgiving;

Sing praises upon the harp unto our God,

147:8Who covereth the heavens with clouds,

Who prepareth rain for the earth,

Who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains.

147:9He giveth to the beast his food,

And to the young ravens which cry.

147:10He delighteth not in the strength of the horse:

He taketh no pleasure in the legs of a man.

147:11Jehovah taketh pleasure in them that fear him,

In those that hope in his lovingkindness.

147:12Praise Jehovah, O Jerusalem;

Praise thy God, O Zion.

147:13For he hath strengthened the bars of thy gates;

He hath blessed thy children within thee.

147:14He maketh peace in thy borders;

He filleth thee with the finest of the wheat.

147:15He sendeth out his commandment upon earth;

His word runneth very swiftly.

147:16He giveth snow like wool;

He scattereth the hoar-frost like ashes.

147:17He casteth forth his ice like morsels:

Who can stand before his cold?

147:18He sendeth out his word, and melteth them:

He causeth his wind to blow, and the waters flow.

147:19He showeth his word unto Jacob,

His statutes and his ordinances unto Israel.

147:20He hath not dealt so with any nation;

And as for his ordinances, they have not known them.

Praise ye Jehovah.
