Praise the LORD! For it is good to sing praises to our God; for he is gracious, and a song of praise is seemly.
The LORD builds up Jerusalem; he gathers the outcasts of Israel.
He heals the brokenhearted, and binds up their wounds.
He determines the number of the stars, he gives to all of them their names.
Great is our LORD, and abundant in power; his understanding is beyond measure.
The LORD lifts up the downtrodden, he casts the wicked to the ground.
