Psalm 147 RHE/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 (146-1) Alleluia. Praise ye the Lord, because psalm is good: to our God be joyful and comely praise. 1 Praise the LORD. How good it is to sing praises to our God, how pleasant and fitting to praise him!
2 (146-2) The Lord buildeth up Jerusalem: he will gather together the dispersed of Israel. 2 The LORD builds up Jerusalem; he gathers the exiles of Israel.
3 (146-3) Who healeth the broken of heart, and bindeth up their bruises. 3 He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
4 (146-4) Who telleth the number of the stars: and calleth them all by their names. 4 He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name.
5 (146-5) Great is our Lord, and great is his power: and of his wisdom there is no number. 5 Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit.
6 (146-6) The Lord lifteth up the meek, and bringeth the wicked down even to the ground. 6 The LORD sustains the humble but casts the wicked to the ground.
7 (146-7) Sing ye to the Lord with praise: sing to our God upon the harp. 7 Sing to the LORD with thanksgiving; make music to our God on the harp.
8 (146-8) Who covereth the heaven with clouds, and prepareth rain for the earth. Who maketh grass to grow on the mountains, and herbs for the service of men. 8 He covers the sky with clouds; he supplies the earth with rain and makes grass grow on the hills.
9 (146-9) Who giveth to beasts their food: and to the young ravens that call upon him. 9 He provides food for the cattle and for the young ravens when they call.
10 (146-10) He shall not delight in the strength of the horse: nor take pleasure in the legs of a man. 10 His pleasure is not in the strength of the horse, nor his delight in the legs of a man;
11 (146-11) The Lord taketh pleasure in them that fear him: and in them that hope in his mercy. 11 the LORD delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love.
12 (147-1) Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem: praise thy God, O Sion. 12 Extol the LORD, O Jerusalem; praise your God, O Zion,
13 (147-2) Because he hath strengthened the bolts of thy gates, he hath blessed thy children within thee. 13 for he strengthens the bars of your gates and blesses your people within you.
14 (147-3) Who hath placed peace in thy borders: and filleth thee with the fat of corn. 14 He grants peace to your borders and satisfies you with the finest of wheat.
15 (147-4) Who sendeth forth his speech to the earth: his word runneth swiftly. 15 He sends his command to the earth; his word runs swiftly.
16 (147-5) Who giveth snow like wool: scattereth mists like ashes. 16 He spreads the snow like wool and scatters the frost like ashes.
17 (147-6) He sendeth his crystal like morsels: who shall stand before the face of his cold? 17 He hurls down his hail like pebbles. Who can withstand his icy blast?
18 (147-7) He shall send out his word, and shall melt them: his wind shall blow, and the waters shall run. 18 He sends his word and melts them; he stirs up his breezes, and the waters flow.
19 (147-8) Who declareth his word to Jacob: his justices and his judgments to Israel. 19 He has revealed his word to Jacob, his laws and decrees to Israel.
20 (147-9) He hath not done in like manner to every nation: and his judgments he hath not made manifest to them. Alleluia. 20 He has done this for no other nation; they do not know his laws. Praise the LORD.
