Praise the LORD.a How good it is to sing praises to our God, how pleasant1 and fitting to praise him!22
The LORD builds up Jerusalem;3 he gathers the exiles4 of Israel.
He heals the brokenhearted5 and binds up their wounds.64
He determines the number of the stars7 and calls them each by name.
Great is our Lord 8 and mighty in power;9 his understanding has no limit.106
The LORD sustains the humble11 but casts the wicked12 to the ground.
Sing to the LORD 13 with thanksgiving;14 make music15 to our God on the harp.168
He covers the sky with clouds;17 he supplies the earth with rain18 and makes grass grow19 on the hills.
He provides food20 for the cattle and for the young ravens21 when they call.
His pleasure is not in the strength22 of the horse,23 nor his delight in the legs of a man;
the LORD delights24 in those who fear him,25 who put their hope26 in his unfailing love.27
