Salmos 147

1 Praise ye the LORD: for {it is} good to sing praises unto our God; for {it is} pleasant; {and} praise is comely.

2 The LORD doth build up Jerusalem: he gathereth together the outcasts of Israel.

3 He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds. {wounds: Heb. griefs}

4 He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by {their} names.

5 Great {is} our Lord, and of great power: his understanding {is} infinite. {his...: Heb. of his understanding there is no number}

6 The LORD lifteth up the meek: he casteth the wicked down to the ground.

7 Sing unto the LORD with thanksgiving; sing praise upon the harp unto our God:

8 Who covereth the heaven with clouds, who prepareth rain for the earth, who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains.

9 He giveth to the beast his food, {and} to the young ravens which cry.

10 He delighteth not in the strength of the horse: he taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man.

11 The LORD taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy.

12 Praise the LORD, O Jerusalem; praise thy God, O Zion.

13 For he hath strengthened the bars of thy gates; he hath blessed thy children within thee.

14 He maketh peace {in} thy borders, {and} filleth thee with the finest of the wheat. {He...: Heb. Who maketh thy border peace} {finest...: Heb. fat of wheat}

15 He sendeth forth his commandment {upon} earth: his word runneth very swiftly.

16 He giveth snow like wool: he scattereth the hoarfrost like ashes.

17 He casteth forth his ice like morsels: who can stand before his cold?

18 He sendeth out his word, and melteth them: he causeth his wind to blow, {and} the waters flow.

19 He sheweth his word unto Jacob, his statutes and his judgments unto Israel. {his word: Heb. his words}

20 He hath not dealt so with any nation: and {as for his} judgments, they have not known them. Praise ye the LORD.
