Psalms Chapter 147 | Parsha:

It is good to chant hymns to our God;
it is pleasant to sing glorious praise.

2The Lord rebuilds Jerusalem;
He gathers in the exiles of Israel.

3He heals their broken hearts,
and binds up their wounds.

4He reckoned the number of the stars;
to each He gave its name.

5Great is our Lord and full of power;
His wisdom is beyond reckoning.

6The Lord gives courage to the lowly,
and brings the wicked down to the dust.

7Sing to the Lord a song of praise,
chant a hymn with a lyre to our God,

8who covers the heavens with clouds,
provides rain for the earth,
makes mountains put forth grass;

9who gives the beasts their food,
to the raven’s brood what they cry for.

10He does not prize the strength of horses,
nor value the fleetness of men;

11but the Lord values those who fear Him,
those who depend on His faithful care.

12O Jerusalem, glorify the Lord;
praise your God, O Zion!

13For He made the bars of your gates strong,
and blessed your children within you.

14He endows your realm with well-being,
and satisfies you with choice wheat.

15He sends forth His word to the earth;
His command runs swiftly.

16He lays down snow like fleece,
scatters frost like ashes.

17He tosses down hail like crumbs—
who can endure His icy cold?

18He issues a command—it melts them;
He breathes—the waters flow.

19He issued His commands to Jacob,
His statutes and rules to Israel.

20He did not do so for any other nation;
of such rules they know nothing.
