 Psalms << Ps : 146 >>The Septuagint (Brenton)

1 Αλληλουια· Αγγαιου καὶ Ζαχαριου.

Αἰνεῖτε τὸν κύριον, ὅτι ἀγαθὸν ψαλμός·
τῷ θεῷ ἡμῶν ἡδυνθείη αἴνεσις.

Praise to the Lord the Almighty. Psalm 147a(v146)Alleluia, a Psalm of Aggaeus and Zacharias.
Praise you the Lord: for psalmody is a good thing;
let praise be sweetly sung to our God.
2 οἰκοδομῶν Ιερουσαλημ ὁ κύριος,
καὶ τὰς διασπορὰς τοῦ Ισραηλ ἐπισυνάξει,
 The Lord builds up Jerusalem;
and he will gather together the dispersed of Israel.
3 ὁ ἰώμενος τοὺς συντετριμμένους τὴν καρδίαν,
καὶ δεσμεύων τὰ συντρίμματα αὐτῶν,
 He heals the broken in heart,
and binds up their wounds.
4 ὁ ἀριθμῶν πλήθη ἄστρων,
καὶ πᾶσιν αὐτοῖς ὀνόματα καλῶν.
 He numbers the multitudes of stars;
and calls them all by names.
5 μέγας ὁ κύριος ἡμῶν,
καὶ μεγάλη ἡ ἰσχὺς αὐτοῦ,
καὶ τῆς συνέσεως αὐτοῦ οὐκ ἔστιν ἀριθμός.
 Great is our Lord,
and great is his strength;
and his understanding is infinite.
6 ἀναλαμβάνων πραεῖς ὁ κύριος,
ταπεινῶν δὲ ἁμαρτωλοὺς ἕως τῆς γῆς.
 The Lord lifts up the meek;
but brings sinners down to the ground.
7 ἐξάρξατε τῷ κυρίῳ ἐν ἐξομολογήσει,
ψάλατε τῷ θεῷ ἡμῶν ἐν κιθάρᾳ,
 Begin the song with thanksgiving to the Lord;
sing praises on the harp to our God:
8 τῷ περιβάλλοντι τὸν οὐρανὸν ἐν νεφέλαις,
τῷ ἑτοιμάζοντι τῇ γῇ ὑετόν,
τῷ ἐξανατέλλοντι ἐν ὄρεσι χόρτον
[καὶ χλόην τῇ δουλείᾳ τῶν ἀνθρώπων,
 who covers the heaven with clouds,
who prepares rain for the earth,
who causes grass to spring up on the mountains,
{and green herb for the service of men;}*
9 διδόντι τοῖς κτήνεσι τροφὴν αὐτῶν
καὶ τοῖς νεοσσοῖς τῶν κοράκων τοῖς ἐπικαλουμένοις αὐτόν.
 and gives cattle their food,
and to the young ravens that call upon him.
10 οὐκ ἐν τῇ δυναστείᾳ τοῦ ἵππου θελήσει,
οὐδὲ ἐν ταῖς κνήμαις τοῦ ἀνδρὸς εὐδοκεῖ·
 He will not take pleasure in the strength of a horse;
neither is he well-pleased with the legs of a man.
11 εὐδοκεῖ Κύριος ἐν τοῖς φοβουμένοις αὐτὸν
καὶ ἐν τοῖς ἐλπίζουσιν ἐπὶ τὸ ἔλεος αὐτοῦ.
 The Lord takes pleasure in them that fear him,
and in all that hope in his mercy.
