He Heals the Brokenhearted1 a Praise the Lord!
For b it is good to sing praises to our God;
for c it is pleasant, ▼
▼ Or for he is beautifuland e a song of praise is fitting.
2 The Lord f builds up Jerusalem;
he g gathers the outcasts of Israel.
3 He heals h the brokenhearted
and i binds up their wounds.
4 He j determines the number of the stars;
he k gives to all of them their names.
5 l Great is our Lord, and m abundant in power;
n his understanding is beyond measure.
6 The Lord o lifts up the humble; ▼
▼ Or afflicted
he casts the wicked to the ground.
7 q Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving;
make melody to our God on r the lyre!
8 He covers the heavens with clouds;
he prepares s rain for the earth;
he makes t grass grow on the hills.
9 He u gives to the beasts their food,
and to v the young ravens that cry.
10 His delight is not in w the strength of the horse,
nor his pleasure in the legs of a man,
11 but the Lord x takes pleasure in those who fear him,
in those who y hope in his steadfast love.
12 Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem!
Praise your God, O Zion!
13 For he strengthens z the bars of your gates;
he blesses your children within you.
14 He aa makes peace in your borders;
he ab fills you with the ac finest of the wheat.
15 He ad sends out his command to the earth;
his word runs swiftly.
16 He gives ae snow like wool;
he scatters af frost like ashes.
17 He hurls down his crystals of ag ice like crumbs;
who can stand before his ah cold?
18 He ai sends out his word, and melts them;
he makes his wind blow and the waters flow.
19 He declares his word to Jacob,
his aj statutes and rules ▼
▼ Or and just decreesto Israel.
20 He al has not dealt thus with any other nation;
they do not know his rules. ▼
▼ Or his just decrees
an Praise the Lord!
