147 Praise for God’s Care for Jerusalem

1 Praise ye the Lord: for it is good to sing praises vnto our God: for it is pleasant, and praise is comely.

2 The Lord doeth build vp Ierusalem: he gathereth together the out-casts of Israel.

3 Hee healeth the broken in heart: and bindeth vp their wounds.

4 He telleth the number of the stars: he calleth them all by their names.

5 Great is our Lord, and of great power: his vnderstanding is infinite.

6 The Lord lifteth vp the meeke: hee casteth the wicked downe to the ground.

7 Sing vnto the Lord with thankesgiuing: sing prayse vpon the harpe vnto our God:

8 Who couereth the heauen with cloudes, who prepareth raine for the earth: who maketh grasse to growe vpon the mountaines.

9 He giueth to the beast his foode: and to the yong rauens which crie.

10 Hee delighteth not in the strength of the horse: he taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man.

11 The Lord taketh pleasure in them that feare him: in those that hope in his mercie.

12 Praise the Lord, O Ierusalem: praise thy God, O Zion.

13 For hee hath strengthened the barres of thy gates: hee hath blessed thy children within thee.

14 He maketh peace in thy borders: and filleth thee with the finest of the wheate.

15 He sendeth forth his commandement vpon earth: his word runneth very swiftly.

16 He giueth snow like wooll: he scattereth the hoare frost like ashes.

17 He casteth forth his yce like morsels: who can stand before his cold?

18 He sendeth out his word, and melteth them: he causeth his wind to blow, and the waters flow.

19 He sheweth his word vnto Iacob: his statutes and his iudgements vnto Israel.

20 He hath not dealt so with any nation: and as for his iudgements, they haue not knowen them. Praise yee the Lord.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16).
