The LORD sustains the humble1 but casts the wicked2 to the ground.
Sing to the LORD3 with thanksgiving;4 make music5 to our God on the harp.68
He covers the sky with clouds;7 he supplies the earth with rain8 and makes grass grow9 on the hills.
He provides food10 for the cattle and for the young ravens11 when they call.
His pleasure is not in the strength12 of the horse,13 nor his delight in the legs of a man;
the LORD delights14 in those who fear him,15 who put their hope16 in his unfailing love.1712
Extol the LORD, O Jerusalem;18 praise your God, O Zion,
for he strengthens the bars of your gates19 and blesses your people20 within you.
He grants peace21 to your borders and satisfies you22 with the finest of wheat.2315
He sends his command24 to the earth; his word runs25 swiftly.
He spreads the snow26 like wool and scatters the frost27 like ashes.
