| ||PRAISE 1 ye Jehovah;|
For 2 it is good to sing praises unto our God;
For it is pleasant, and praise is comely.
| ||Jehovah doth build up Jerusalem;|
He gathereth together the outcasts of Israel.
| ||He healeth the broken in heart,|
And bindeth up their wounds. 3
| ||He counteth the number of the stars;|
He calleth them all by their names.
| ||Great is our Lord, and mighty in power;|
His understanding is infinite.
| ||Jehovah upholdeth the meek:|
He bringeth the wicked down to the ground.
| ||Sing unto Jehovah with thanksgiving;|
Sing praises upon the harp unto our God,
| ||Who covereth the heavens with clouds,|
Who prepareth rain for the earth,
Who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains.
| ||He giveth to the beast his food,|
And to the young ravens which cry.
| ||He delighteth not in the strength of the horse:|
He taketh no pleasure in the legs of a man.
| ||Jehovah taketh pleasure in them that fear him,|
In those that hope in his lovingkindness.
| ||Praise Jehovah, O Jerusalem;|
Praise thy God, O Zion.
| ||For he hath strengthened the bars of thy gates;|
He hath blessed thy children within thee.
| ||He maketh peace 4 in thy borders;|
He filleth thee with the finest 5 of the wheat.
| ||He sendeth out his commandment upon earth;|
His word runneth very swiftly.
| ||He giveth snow like wool;|
He scattereth the hoar-frost like ashes.
| ||He casteth forth his ice like morsels:|
Who can stand before his cold?
| ||He sendeth out his word, and melteth them:|
He causeth his wind to blow, and the waters to flow.
| ||He showeth his word unto Jacob,|
His statutes and his ordinances unto Israel.
| ||He hath not dealt so with any nation;|
And as for his ordinances, they have not known them.
Praise 6 ye Jehovah.
