Praise the Lord.a

How good it is to sing praises to our God,

how pleasantv and fitting to praise him!w

The Lord builds up Jerusalem;x

he gathers the exilesy of Israel.

He heals the brokenheartedz

and binds up their wounds.a

He determines the number of the starsb

and calls them each by name.

Great is our Lordc and mighty in power;d

his understanding has no limit.e

The Lord sustains the humblef

but casts the wickedg to the ground.

Sing to the Lordh with grateful praise;i

make musicj to our God on the harp.k

He covers the sky with clouds;l

he supplies the earth with rainm

and makes grass grown on the hills.

He provides foodo for the cattle

and for the young ravensp when they call.

10 His pleasure is not in the strengthq of the horse,r

nor his delight in the legs of the warrior;

11 the Lord delightss in those who fear him,t

who put their hopeu in his unfailing love.v
