|<< Psalm 147 >>|
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
It is good to sing to our God, and sweet, and praise is fitting for him.
2Lord Jehovah built Jerusalem and the scattered ones of Israel he gathered.
3He heals the broken hearts and binds up their sorrows.
4He counts the number of the stars and he calls all of them by names.
5Great is our Lord and he is strong in his power and there is no end to his understanding.
6Lord Jehovah raises the poor and humbles the evil unto the dirt.
7Praise Lord Jehovah with glory; sing to Lord Jehovah with harps
8Who hides Heaven with clouds; he gives rain upon the Earth and he makes the grass sprout upon the mountains.
9And he gives food to the beasts and to the young ravens that cry.
10Lord Jehovah does not delight in the power of a horse, neither delights in the legs of a mighty man.
11But Lord Jehovah delights in his worshipers and those who expect his grace.
12Praise Lord Jehovah, oh, Jerusalem; praise your God, oh, Zion!
13Because he has strengthened the bars of your gates and blessed your sons within you.
14He established your borders in peace and he satisfied you with the fatness of wheat.
15He sends his word upon Earth and his answer runs quickly.
16He gives snow like wool and he scatters frost like ashes.
17He casts ice like morsels; who is able to stand before his cold?
18He sends his word and melts them; he makes the winds blow and the waters flow.
19He shows his word in Jacob, his laws and his commandments in Israel.
20He has not done so for all the nations, neither has he shown them his judgments.
