It is Good to Sing Praises1 Hallelujah! ▼
▼ Or Hallelu Yah, meaning Praise the LORD; also in verse 20How good [it is] to sing praises to our God, for praise is pleasant and lovely. 2 The LORD builds up Jerusalem; He gathers the exiles of Israel. 3 He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. 4 He determines the number of the stars; He calls them each by name. 5 Great [is] our Lord and mighty in power; His understanding has no limit. 6 The LORD sustains the humble, [but] casts the wicked to the ground. 7 Sing to the LORD with thanksgiving; make music on the harp to our God, 8 who covers the sky with clouds, who prepares rain for the earth, who makes grass to grow on the hills. 9 He provides food for the animals, and for the young ravens when they call. 10 He does not delight in the strength of the horse; He takes no pleasure in the legpower of the man. 11 The LORD is pleased with those who fear Him, who hope in His loving devotion. 12 Exalt the LORD, O Jerusalem; praise your God, O Zion! 13 For He strengthens the bars of your gates and blesses the children within you. 14 He makes peace [at] your borders; He fills you with the finest wheat. 15 He sends forth His command to the earth; His word runs swiftly. 16 He spreads the snow like wool; He scatters the frost like ashes; 17 He casts forth His hail like pebbles. Who can withstand His icy blast? 18 He sends forth His word and melts them; He unleashes His winds, and the waters flow. 19 He declares His word to Jacob, His statutes and judgments to Israel. 20 He has done this for no other nation; they do not know His judgments. ▼
