Psalms 147

147
Praise to God for His Word and Providence
1Praise the Lord!
For #Ex. 15:18; Ps. 10:16; (Rev. 11:15)it is good to sing praises to our God;
#Ps. 92:1For it is pleasant, and #Ps. 135:3praise is beautiful.
2The Lord #Ps. 33:1builds up Jerusalem;
#Ps. 102:16He gathers together the outcasts of Israel.
3#Deut. 30:3; Is. 11:12; 56:8; Ezek. 39:28He heals the brokenhearted
And binds up their wounds.
4#(Ps. 51:17); Is. 61:1; Luke 4:18He counts the number of the stars;
He calls them all by name.
5#Is. 40:26Great is our Lord, and #Ps. 48:1mighty in power;
#Nah. 1:3His understanding is infinite.
6#Is. 40:28The Lord lifts up the humble;
He casts the wicked down to the ground.
7Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving;
Sing praises on the harp to our God,
8#Ps. 146:8, 9Who covers the heavens with clouds,
Who prepares rain for the earth,
Who makes grass to grow on the mountains.
9#Job 38:26; Ps. 104:13He gives to the beast its food,
And #Job 38:41to the young ravens that cry.
10#(Matt. 6:26)He does not delight 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,
In those who hope in His mercy.
12Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem!
Praise your God, O Zion!
13For He has strengthened the bars of your gates;
He has blessed your children within you.
14#Ps. 33:16, 17He makes peace in your borders,
And #Is. 54:13; 60:17, 18fills you with the finest wheat.
15#Ps. 132:15He sends out His command to the earth;
His word runs very swiftly.
16#(Ps. 107:20)He gives snow like wool;
He scatters the frost like ashes;
17He casts out His hail like morsels;
Who can stand before His cold?
18#Job 37:6He sends out His word and melts them;
He causes His wind to blow, and the waters flow.
19#Job 37:10He declares His word to Jacob,
#Deut. 33:4; Ps. 103:7His statutes and His judgments to Israel.
20#Mal. 4:4He has not dealt thus with any nation;
And as for His judgments, they have not known them.
Praise the Lord!
