Bible Darby's Translation

Psalm 147

1Praise ye Jah! for it is good. Sing psalms of our God; for it is pleasant: praise is comely.

2Jehovah doth build up Jerusalem: he gathereth the outcasts of Israel.

3He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.

4He counteth the number of the stars; he giveth names to them all.

5Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.

6Jehovah lifteth up the meek; he abaseth the wicked to the earth.

7Sing unto Jehovah with thanksgiving; sing psalms upon the harp unto our God:

8Who covereth the heavens with clouds, who prepareth rain for the earth, who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains;

9Who giveth to the cattle their food, to the young ravens which cry.

10He delighteth not in the strength of the horse, he taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man;

11Jehovah taketh pleasure in those that fear him, in those that hope in his loving-kindness.

12Laud Jehovah, O Jerusalem; praise thy God, O Zion.

13For he hath strengthened the bars of thy gates; he hath blessed thy children within thee;

14He maketh peace in thy borders; he satisfieth thee with the finest of the wheat.

15He sendeth forth his oracles to the earth: his word runneth very swiftly.

16He giveth snow like wool, scattereth the hoar frost like ashes;

17He casteth forth his ice like morsels: who can stand before his cold?

18He sendeth his word, and melteth them; he causeth his wind to blow -- the waters flow.

19He sheweth his word unto Jacob, his statutes and his judgments unto Israel.

20He hath not dealt thus with any nation; and as for [his] judgments, they have not known them. Hallelujah!
