Psalms 147 (Praise thy God O Sion)

Psalms Chapter 147

Praise thy God O Sion
Listen to "Psalms 147 (Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem; praise thy God, O Sion)" on Spreaker.

Alleluia, a Psalm of Aggaeus and Zacharias.

1 Praise ye the Lord: for psalmody is a good thing; let praise be sweetly sung to our God. 2 the Lord builds up Jerusalem; and he will gather together the dispersed of Israel. 3 He heals the broken in heart, and binds up their wounds. 4 He numbers the multitudes of stars; and calls them all by names. 5 Great is our Lord, and great is his strength; and his understanding is infinite. 6 the Lord lifts up the meek; but brings sinners down to the ground.

7 Begin the song with thanksgiving to the Lord; sing praises on the harp to our God: 8 who covers the heaven with clouds, who prepares the rain for the earth, who causes grass to spring up on the mountains, [and green herb for the service of men;] 9 and gives to cattle their food, and to the young ravens that call upon him. 10 He will not take pleasure in the strength of a horse; neither is he well-pleased with the legs of a man. 11 the Lord takes pleasure in them that fear him, and in all that hope in his mercy.

Alleluia, a Psalm of Aggaeus and Zacharias.

12 Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem; praise thy God, O Sion. 13 For he has strengthened the bars of thy gates; he has blessed thy children within thee. 14 He makes thy borders peaceful, and fills thee with the flour of wheat. 15 He sends his oracle to the earth: his word will run swiftly. 16 He gives snow like wool: he scatters the mist like ashes. 17 Casting forth his ice like morsels: who shall stand before his cold? 18 He shall send out his word, and melt them: he shall blow with his wind, and the waters shall flow. 19 He sends his word to Jacob, his ordinances and judgements to Israel. 20 He has not done so to any other nation; and he has not shewn them his judgements.
