Psalm 147 1Praise the LORD . Hebrew Hallelu Yah; also in verse 20 How good it is to sing praises to our God, how pleasant and fitting to praise him!

2The LORD builds up Jerusalem; he gathers the exiles of Israel.

3He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.

4He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name.

5Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit.

6The LORD sustains the humble but casts the wicked to the ground.

7Sing to the LORD with grateful praise; make music to our God on the harp.

8He covers the sky with clouds; he supplies the earth with rain and makes grass grow on the hills.

9He provides food for the cattle and for the young ravens when they call.

10His pleasure is not in the strength of the horse, nor his delight in the legs of the warrior;

11the LORD delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love.
