Psalm 147

Psalm 147

Praise the Lord.[a]

How good it is to sing praises to our God,
    how pleasant and fitting to praise him!

The Lord builds up Jerusalem;
    he gathers the exiles of Israel.
He heals the brokenhearted
    and binds up their wounds.
He determines the number of the stars
    and calls them each by name.
Great is our Lord and mighty in power;
    his understanding has no limit.
The Lord sustains the humble
    but casts the wicked to the ground.

Sing to the Lord with grateful praise;
    make music to our God on the harp.

He covers the sky with clouds;
    he supplies the earth with rain
    and makes grass grow on the hills.
He provides food for the cattle
    and for the young ravens when they call.

10 His pleasure is not in the strength of the horse,
    nor his delight in the legs of the warrior;
11 the Lord delights in those who fear him,
    who put their hope in his unfailing love.

12 Extol the Lord, Jerusalem;
    praise your God, Zion.

13 He strengthens the bars of your gates
    and blesses your people within you.
14 He grants peace to your borders
    and satisfies you with the finest of wheat.

15 He sends his command to the earth;
    his word runs swiftly.
16 He spreads the snow like wool
    and scatters the frost like ashes.
17 He hurls down his hail like pebbles.
    Who can withstand his icy blast?
18 He sends his word and melts them;
    he stirs up his breezes, and the waters flow.

19 He has revealed his word to Jacob,
    his laws and decrees to Israel.
20 He has done this for no other nation;
    they do not know his laws.[b]

Praise the Lord.

詩篇 147

讚美上帝復興耶路撒冷

1你們要讚美耶和華!
歌頌我們的上帝,真是美好!
讚美祂,真是快樂合宜!
耶和華重建耶路撒冷,
召集被擄去的以色列人。
祂醫治心靈破碎的人,
包紮他們的創傷。
祂決定眾星的數目,
給它們一一命名。
我們的主偉大無比,充滿力量,
祂的智慧沒有窮盡。
耶和華扶持謙卑人,
毀滅邪惡人。
你們要以感恩的心歌頌耶和華,
彈琴讚美我們的上帝。
祂以雲霞遮蔽天空,
降雨水滋潤大地,
使山上長出綠草。
祂賜食物給走獸,
餵養嗷嗷待哺的小烏鴉。
10 耶和華所喜悅的不是強健的馬匹,
也不是矯捷的戰士,
11 而是敬畏祂、仰望祂慈愛的人。

12 耶路撒冷啊,要頌讚耶和華;
錫安啊,要讚美你的上帝。
13 因為祂使你的城門堅固,
賜福給你的兒女。
14 祂使你四境平安,
飽享上好的麥子。
15 祂向大地發出命令,
祂的話迅速傳開。
16 祂降下羊毛般的白雪,
撒下爐灰般的寒霜。
17 祂拋下碎石般的冰雹,
誰能經得住祂降下的嚴寒呢?
18 祂一聲令下,冰雪便溶化,
微風便吹拂,河川便奔流。
19 祂將自己的話傳於雅各,
將自己的律例和法令指示以色列。
20 祂未曾這樣對待其他國家,
他們不知道祂的律法。
你們要讚美耶和華!
