Praise for Jerusalem’s Restoration and Prosperity.
1Praise the LORD!
2The LORD builds up Jerusalem;
3He heals the brokenhearted,
4He counts the number of the stars;
5Great is our Lord, and abundant in strength;
6The LORD supports the afflicted;
7Sing to the LORD with thanksgiving;
8Who covers the heavens with clouds,
9He gives to the beast its food,
10He does not delight in the strength of the horse;
11The LORD favors those who fear Him,
12Praise the LORD, O Jerusalem!
13For He has strengthened the bars of your gates;
14He makes peace in your borders;
15He sends forth His command to the earth;
16He gives snow like wool;
17He casts forth His ice as fragments;
18He sends forth His word and melts them;
19He declares His words to Jacob,
20He has not dealt thus with any nation;
