The prophet exhorteth to praise God for his care of the Church,
Psalms 147:1 Praise ye Yah, For it is good, to make melody to our GOD,For it is delightful, seemly is praise! Psalms 147:2 Yahweh, is building Jerusalem, The outcasts of Israel, will he gather together. Psalms 147:3 He is healing the broken in heart,and binding up their hurts.
Psalms 147:4 Counting the number of the stars, To all of themnames, he giveth. Psalms 147:5 Great is our Lord, and of abounding strength, And, his knowledge, cannot be expressed.
and his mercy:
Psalms 147:6 Yahweh, relieveth the humbled! casting the lawless down to the earth.
to praise him for his providence:
Psalms 147:7 Respond to Yahweh with thanksgiving, Make melody to our God with the lyre. Psalms 147:8 Who covereth the heavens with clouds, preparing rain for the earth, who causeth the mountains to sprout grass: Psalms 147:9 Giving, to the beast, its food, to the young ravens, when they cry. Psalms 147:10 Not in the strength of the horse, doth he delight, Not in the legs of a man, hath he pleasure: Psalms 147:11 Yahweh, hath pleasure, in them who revere him, in them who wait for his lovingkindness.
to praise him for his blessings upon the Kingdom,
Psalms 147:12 Laud thou, O Jerusalem, Yahweh, Praise thy God, O Zion: Psalms 147:13 For he hath strengthened the bars of thy gates, He hath blessed thy children in thy midst: Psalms 147:14 Who maketh thy boundaries to be peace, With the marrow of wheat, doth he satisfy thee:
for his power over the meteors,
Psalms 147:15 Who sendeth his utterance to the earth, How swiftly, runneth his word! Psalms 147:16 Who giveth snow like wool, Hoar-frostlike ashes, he scattereth: Psalms 147:17 Casting forth his ice like crumbs, Before his cold, who can stand? Psalms 147:18 He sendeth forth his word and melteth them, He causeth his wind to blow, the waters, stream along:
and for his ordinances in the Church.
Psalms 147:19 Declaring his word unto Jacob, His statutes and his regulations, unto Israel. Psalms 147:20 He hath not dealt so with any nation, and, his regulations, he maketh not known to them. Praise ye Yah!
