God Restores Jerusalem

1 Hallelujah! How good it is to sing to our God, for praise is pleasant and lovely.a 2 The Lord rebuilds Jerusalem;b He gathers Israel's exiled people.c 3 He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.d 4 He counts the number of the stars; He gives names to all of them. 5 Our Lord is great, vast in power; His understanding is infinite.e f 6 The Lord helps the afflicted but brings the wicked to the ground. 7 Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving; play the lyre to our God,g 8 who covers the sky with clouds, prepares rain for the earth, and causes grass to grow on the hills. 9 He provides the animals with their food, and the young ravens, what they cry for. 10 He is not impressed by the strength of a horse; He does not value the powerh of a man. 11 The Lord values those who fear Him, those who put their hope in His faithful love.i 12 Exalt the Lord, Jerusalem; praise your God, Zion! 13 For He strengthens the bars of your gates and blesses your children within you. 14 He endows your territory with prosperity;j He satisfies you with the finest wheat.k 15 He sends His command throughout the earth; His word runs swiftly. 16 He spreads snow like wool; He scatters frost like ashes; 17 He throws His hailstones like crumbs. Who can withstand His cold? 18 He sends His word and melts them; He unleashes His winds,l and the waters flow. 19 He declares His word to Jacob, His statutes and judgments to Israel. 20 He has not done this for any nation; they do not knowm [His] judgments. Hallelujah!
