He Heals the Brokenhearted

Psalm 147

1 Praise 1 the LORD!
For a it is good to sing praises to our God;
b For it is pleasant, and c praise is beautiful.
2 The LORD d builds up Jerusalem;
e He gathers together the outcasts of Israel.
3 f He heals the brokenhearted
And binds up their 2 wounds.
4 g He counts the number of the stars;
He calls them all by name.
5 h Great is our Lord, and i mighty in power;
j His understanding is infinite.
6 k The LORD lifts up the humble;
He casts the wicked down to the ground.

7 Sing to the LORD with thanksgiving;
Sing praises on the harp to our God,
8 l Who covers the heavens with clouds,
Who prepares rain for the earth,
Who makes grass to grow on the mountains.
9 m He gives to the beast its food,
And n to the young ravens that cry.
10 o He does not delight in the strength of the horse;
He takes no pleasure in the legs of a man.
11 The LORD takes pleasure in those who fear Him,
In those who hope in His mercy.

12 Praise the LORD, O Jerusalem!
Praise your God, O Zion!
13 For He has strengthened the bars of your gates;
He has blessed your children within you.
14 p He makes peace in your borders,
And q fills you with 3 the finest wheat.
15 r He sends out His command to the earth;
His word runs very swiftly.
16 s He gives snow like wool;
He scatters the frost like ashes;
17 He casts out His hail like 4 morsels;
Who can stand before His cold?
18 t He sends out His word and melts them;
He causes His wind to blow, and the waters flow.
19 u He declares His word to Jacob,
v His statutes and His judgments to Israel.
20 w He has not dealt thus with any nation;
And as for His judgments, they have not known them.
5 Praise the LORD!
