Psalm 147a Thursday Morning 4
How good to hymn our God! * How pleasant to praise our Glorious One!
Rebuilder of Jerusalem is Yahweh; * he gathers the outcasts of Israel,
the healer of the brokenhearted, * and binder of their wounds.
He assigns a number to each star; * to them all gives names.
Great is our Lord, surpassing in power; * none can describe his skill.
Yahweh reassures the humble, * and reduces the wicked to the underworld.
Sing to Yahweh with thanksgiving; * make music to our God with the lyre,
who covers the heaven with clouds, * who prepares rain for the earth, * who makes the mountains sprout grass.
who gives to the cattle their grain, * to the crows what they gather.
Not in the power of horses does he delight; * not in a man's thighs is he pleased,
but Yahweh is pleased with those who fear him, * with those who rely on his strength.
