Psalm 147
International Standard Version
1Hallelujah! It is good to sing praise to our God, and it is fitting to sing glorious praise.

2The LORD rebuilds Jerusalem; he gathers together the outcasts of Israel.

3He heals the brokenhearted, binding up their injuries.

4He keeps track of the number of stars, assigning names to all of them.

5Our Lord is great, and rich in power; his understanding has no limitation.

6The LORD supports the afflicted while he casts the wicked to the ground.

7Sing to the LORD with thanksgiving, and compose music to our God with the lyre.

8He shields the heavens with clouds, preparing rain for the earth and making grass grow on the hills.

9He gives wild animals their food, including the young ravens when they cry.

10He takes no delight in the strength of a horse, and gains no pleasure in the runner's swiftness.

11But the LORD is pleased with those who fear him, with those who depend on his gracious love.

12Glorify the LORD, Jerusalem! Praise your God, Zion!

13For he has strengthened the bars of your gates, blessing your children within you.

14He grants peace within your borders, satisfying you with the finest of wheat.

15He sends out his command to the earth, making his word go forth quickly.

16He supplies snow like wool, scattering frost like ashes.

17He casts down his ice crystals like bread fragments. Who can endure his freezing cold?

18He sends out his word and melts them. He makes his wind blow and the water flows.

19He declares his words to Jacob, his statutes and decrees to Israel.

20He has not dealt with any other nation like this; they never knew his decrees. Hallelujah!
