1Praise Yah! Indeed, it is good to make music to our God; indeed, it is pleasant, and praise is delightful.
2Yahweh is rebuilding Jerusalem; He is gathering together the scattered of Israel.
3He is the one who heals the brokenhearted and binds up their injuries.
4He counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by their names.
5Great is our Lord, and abundant in power; his understanding is without limits.
6Yahweh restores the afflicted; he brings the wicked down to the ground.
7Sing to Yahweh with thanksgiving! Make music on the lyre to our God
8who covers the heavens with clouds, who prepares rain for the earth, who causes green grass to grow on the mountains.
9He provides food for the cattle, and for the young ravens when they call.
10He does not delight in the strength of the horse; he takes no pleasure in man’s legs.
11Yahweh takes pleasure in those who fear him, those who hope in his covenant faithfulness.
12Laud Yahweh, O Jerusalem! Praise your God, O Zion!
13For he has strengthened the bars of your gates; he has blessed your children within you.
14He makes peace in your borders; He fills you with the finest of the wheat.
15He sends his utterance to the earth; his word runs quickly.
16He gives snow like wool; and scatters frost like ashes.
17He casts forth his hail like crumbs; who can stand before his cold?
18He sends his word and melts them. He causes his breath to blow and the waters flow.
19He declares his word to Jacob, his statutes and his judgments to Israel.
20He has not acted this way for any other nation; and his judgments, they do not know them. Praise Yah!
