1 Praise the Lord.a
How good it is to sing praises to our God,
2 The Lord builds up Jerusalem;x
he gathers the exilesy of Israel.
3 He heals the brokenheartedz
and binds up their wounds.a
4 He determines the number of the starsb
and calls them each by name.
his understanding has no limit.e
6 The Lord sustains the humblef
but casts the wickedg to the ground.
8 He covers the sky with clouds;l
he supplies the earth with rainm
and makes grass grown on the hills.
9 He provides foodo for the cattle
and for the young ravensp when they call.
nor his delight in the legs of the warrior;
