The prophet exhorteth to praise God for his care of the Church,
Psalms 147:1 Praise ye Jah! For [it is] good to praise our God, For pleasantcomely [is] praise. Psalms 147:2 Building Jerusalem [is] Jehovah, The driven away of Israel He gathereth. Psalms 147:3 Who is giving healing to the broken of heart, And is binding up their griefs.
Psalms 147:4 Appointing the number of the stars, To all them He giveth names. Psalms 147:5 Great [is] our Lord, and abundant in power, Of His understanding there is no narration.
and his mercy:
Psalms 147:6 Jehovah is causing the meek to stand, Making low the wicked unto the earth.
to praise him for his providence:
Psalms 147:7 Answer ye to Jehovah with thanksgiving, Sing ye to our God with a harp. Psalms 147:8 Who is covering the heavens with clouds, Who is preparing for the earth rain, Who is causing grass to spring up [on] mountains, Psalms 147:9 Giving to the beast its food, To the young of the ravens that call. Psalms 147:10 Not in the might of the horse doth He delight, Not in the legs of a man is He pleased. Psalms 147:11 Jehovah is pleased with those fearing Him, With those waiting for His kindness.
to praise him for his blessings upon the Kingdom,
Psalms 147:12 Glorify, O Jerusalem, Jehovah, Praise thy God, O Zion. Psalms 147:13 For He did strengthen the bars of thy gates, He hath blessed thy sons in thy midst. Psalms 147:14 Who is making thy border peace, [With] the fat of wheat He satisfieth Thee.
for his power over the meteors,
Psalms 147:15 Who is sending forth His saying [on] earth, Very speedily doth His word run. Psalms 147:16 Who is giving snow like wool, Hoar-frost as ashes He scattereth. Psalms 147:17 Casting forth His ice like morsels, Before His cold who doth stand? Psalms 147:18 He sendeth forth His word and melteth them, He causeth His wind to blowthe waters flow.
and for his ordinances in the Church.
Psalms 147:19 Declaring His words to Jacob, His statutes and His judgments to Israel. Psalms 147:20 He hath not done so to any nation, As to judgments, they have not known them. Praise ye Jah!
