It is good to sing praises to our God. It is good and pleasant to praise him. 2 The Lord rebuilds Jerusalem. He brings back the scattered Israelites who were taken captive. 3 He heals the brokenhearted. He bandages their wounds.
4 He counts the stars and names each one. 5 Our Lord is great and very powerful. There is no limit to what he knows. 6 The Lord defends those who are not proud. But he throws the wicked to the ground.
7 Sing praises to the Lord. Praise our God with harps. 8 He fills the sky with clouds. He sends rain to the earth. He makes grass grow on the hills. 9 He gives food to cattle and to the little birds that call.
10 He is not pleased by the strength of a horse or the power of a man. 11 The Lord is pleased with those who fear him, with those who trust his love.
12 Jerusalem, praise the Lord. Jerusalem, praise your God. 13 He makes your city gates strong. He blesses the people inside. 14 He brings peace to your country. He fills you with the finest grain.
15 He gives a command to the earth, and it quickly obeys him. 16 He spreads the snow like wool. He scatters the frost like ashes. 17 He throws down hail like rocks. No one can stand the cold he sends. 18 Then he gives a command, and it melts. He sends the breezes, and the waters flow.
19 He gave his word to Jacob. He gave his laws and demands to Israel. 20 He didn’t do this for any other nation. They don’t know his laws.
