Psalm 147

Praise for Jerusalem’s Restoration and Prosperity.

1[a]Praise [b]the Lord!
For it is good to sing praises to our God;
For [c]it is pleasant and praise is becoming.
The Lord builds up Jerusalem;
He gathers the outcasts of Israel.
He heals the brokenhearted
And binds up their [d]wounds.
He counts the number of the stars;
He [e]gives names to all of them.
Great is our Lord and abundant in strength;
His understanding is [f]infinite.
The Lord [g]supports the afflicted;
He brings down the wicked to the ground.

Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving;
Sing praises to our God on the lyre,
Who covers the heavens with clouds,
Who provides rain for the earth,
Who makes grass to [h]grow on the mountains.
He gives to the beast its food,
And to the young ravens which cry.
10 He does not delight in the strength of the horse;
He does not take pleasure in the legs of a man.
11 The Lord favors those who fear Him,
Those who wait for His lovingkindness.

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 sons within you.
14 He makes [i]peace in your borders;
He satisfies you with the [j]finest of the wheat.
15 He sends forth His command to the earth;
His word runs very swiftly.
16 He gives snow like wool;
He scatters the frost like ashes.
17 He casts forth His ice as fragments;
Who can stand before His cold?
18 He sends forth His word and melts them;
He causes His wind to blow and the waters to flow.
19 He declares His words to Jacob,
His statutes and His ordinances to Israel.
20 He has not dealt thus with any nation;
And as for His ordinances, they have not known them.
[k]Praise [l]the Lord!

Salme 147

Den almægtige Gud

1Halleluja!
Det er godt at synge lovsange til Gud,
    ja, det er herligt at prise hans magt.
Herren genopbygger Jerusalem
    og bringer de landflygtige hjem til Israel.
Han heler de sønderbrudte hjerter,
    læger de sår, de har fået.
Herren satte stjernerne på himlen,
    han har givet dem alle et navn.
Han er stor og mægtig,
    hans visdom er uden grænser.
Herren rejser den ydmyge op
    og kaster den onde i støvet.
Syng takkesange for Herren,
    spil på jeres harper for Gud.
Han samler skyerne på himlen,
    sender byger af regn ned på jorden,
        så græs spirer frem på bakkerne.
Han giver dyrene deres føde,
    mætter den skrigende ravneunge.
10 Han er ikke interesseret i stærke heste,
    ikke imponeret af krigerens styrke.
11 Han glæder sig over dem, der adlyder ham
    og har tillid til hans trofaste omsorg.
12 Jerusalems befolkning, pris Herren.
    Zions indbyggere, lovsyng jeres Gud.
13 Han beskytter byen mod fjenders angreb
    og velsigner dens indbyggere.
14 Han skaber fred i landet
    og sørger for en rigelig høst.
15 Han sender sit ord ud over jorden,
    hans vilje bliver udført i hast.
16 Han breder sneen ud som et tæppe,
    spreder rimfrost på jorden som mel.
17 Han kaster hagl som byger af småsten,
    hvem kan holde stand mod den isnende kulde?
18 På hans ord begynder isen at smelte,
    når han ånder på den, pibler vandet frem.
19 Han sendte sit ord til Israels folk,
    gav dem sine forskrifter og lovbud.
20 Han sendte det ikke til de andre folk,
    de kender ikke hans love.
Halleluja!
