Tehillim (Psalms) 147
1Praise Yah! For it is good to sing praises to our Elohim. For it is pleasant – praise is fitting.
2יהוה builds up Yerushalayim, He gathers the outcasts of Yisra’ĕl –
3He heals the broken-hearted And binds up their wounds.
4He appoints the number of the stars, He gives names to all of them.
5Great is our Master and mighty in power, There is no limit to His understanding.
6יהוה lifts up the meek ones, He throws the wrong ones down to the ground.
7Respond to יהוה with thanksgiving; Sing praises on a lyre to our Elohim,
8Who covers the heavens with clouds, Who prepares rain for the earth, Who makes grass to sprout on the mountains,
9Giving to the beast its food, To the young ravens that cry.
10He does not delight in the strength of the horse, He takes no pleasure in the legs of a man.
11יהוה takes pleasure in those who fear Him, In those who wait for His loving-commitment.
12Extol יהוה, O Yerushalayim! Praise your Elohim, O Tsiyon!
13For He has strengthened the bars of your gates, He has blessed your children in your midst,
14Who makes peace in your borders, He satisfies you with the finest wheat;
15Who sends out His command to the earth, His word runs very speedily;
16Who gives snow like wool, He scatters the frost like ashes;
17Throwing out His hail like pieces; Who does stand before His cold?
18He sends out His word and melts them, He causes His wind to blow – the waters flow;
19Declaring His Word to Ya‛aqoḇ, His laws and His right-rulings to Yisra’ĕl.#See Rom. 2:20; Rom. 3:2; Rom. 9:4
20He has not done so with any nation; And they have not known His right-rulings! Praise Yah!
