Psalms Chapter 147 (Index)

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

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

003  He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.

004  He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.

005  Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.

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

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

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

009  He giveth to the beast his food, and to the young ravens which cry.

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

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

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

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

014  He maketh peace in thy borders, and filleth thee with the finest of the wheat.

015  He sendeth forth his commandment upon earth: his word runneth very swiftly.

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

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

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

019  He showeth his word unto Jacob, his statutes and his judgments unto Israel.

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