1Praise ye Hashem: for it is tov to sing praises unto Eloheinu; for it is na'im (pleasant); and tehillah is fitting. 2Hashem is the Boneh Yerushalayim (builder of Jerusalem): He gathereth together the nidkhei Yisroel (the outcasts Of Israel, those of the Golus). 3He is the Rofeh (healer) of the Shevurei-lev (broken in heart), binds up their wounds. 4He determines the mispar of the kokhavim; He calleth them all by their shemot. 5Gadol is Adoneinu, and of rav ko'ach; to His tevunah (understanding, intelligence) there is no mispar (number, limit). 6Hashem lifteth up the anavim (meek ones, humble ones); He casteth the resha'im down to the ground. 7Sing unto Hashem with todah; make music upon the kinnor (harp) unto Eloheinu: 8Who covereth Shomayim with clouds, Who prepareth matar (rainfall) for ha'aretz, HaMatzemi'ach (Who maketh to spring up) the khatzir (grass) upon the harim (hills, mountains). 9He giveth to the behemah her lechem, and to the bnei orev (young ravens) when they cry out. 10He delighteth not in the gevurat hasus: He taketh not pleasure in the shokayim of an ish (legs of a man). 11Hashem taketh pleasure in them that fear Him, in those that hope in His chesed. 12Praise Hashem, O Yerushalayim; praise thy G-d, O Tziyon. 13For He hath strengthened the bars of thy she'arim (gates); He hath blessed thy banim within thee. 14He granteth shalom within thy borders, and filleth thee with the chelev chittim (the finest of wheat). 15He sendeth forth His imrah (command) upon eretz: His Devar runneth swiftly. 16He giveth sheleg (snow) like tzemer (wool); He scattereth the kfor (frost) like ashes. 17He casteth down His kerach (ice) like crumbs: who can stand before His cold? 18He sendeth out His Devar, and melteth them: He causeth His ruach to blow, and the mayim to flow. 19He declareth His Devar unto Ya'akov, His chukkot and His mishpatim unto Yisroel. 20He hath not dealt so with any Goy (nation): and as for His mishpatim, they have not known them. Praise ye Hashem.
