Psalm 147:1-2 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Psalm 147[a]

God’s Word Restores Jerusalem

Hallelujah!

I

How good to sing praise to our God;
    how pleasant to give fitting praise.
The Lord rebuilds Jerusalem,
    and gathers the dispersed of Israel,

Footnotes:

  1. Psalm 147 The hymn is divided into three sections by the calls to praise in Ps 147:1, 7, 12. The first section praises the powerful creator who restores exiled Judah (Ps 147:1–6); the second section, the creator who provides food to animals and human beings; the third and climactic section exhorts the holy city to recognize it has been re-created and made the place of disclosure for God’s word, a word as life-giving as water.
