147 Revised Standard Version BHS Hebrew Text Reference
Praise the LORD!
For it is good to sing praises to our God;
for he is gracious, and a song of praise is seemly.
הַלְלוּ יָהּ
כִּי־טֹוב זַמְּרָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ כִּי־נָעִים נָאוָה תְהִלָּה׃
Praise to the Lord the Almighty. Psalm 147a(v146)
The LORD builds up Jerusalem;
he gathers the outcasts of Israel.
בֹּונֵה יְרוּשָׁלִַם יְהוָה נִדְחֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל יְכַנֵּס׃  
He heals the brokenhearted,
and binds up their wounds.
הָרֹפֵא לִשְׁבוּרֵי לֵב וּמְחַבֵּשׁ לְעַצְּבֹותָם׃  
He determines the number of the stars,
he gives to all of them their names.
מֹונֶה מִסְפָּר לַכֹּוכָבִים לְכֻלָּם שֵׁמֹות יִקְרָא׃  
Great is our LORD, and abundant in power;
his understanding is beyond measure.
גָּדֹול אֲדֹונֵינוּ וְרַב־כֹּחַ לִתְבוּנָתֹו אֵין מִסְפָּר׃  
The LORD lifts up the downtrodden,
he casts the wicked to the ground.
מְעֹודֵד עֲנָוִים יְהוָה מַשְׁפִּיל רְשָׁעִים עֲדֵי־אָרֶץ׃  
Sing to the LORD with thanksgiving;
make melody to our God upon the lyre!
עֱנוּ לַיהוָה בְּתֹודָה זַמְּרוּ לֵאלֹהֵינוּ בְכִנֹּור׃  
He covers the heavens with clouds,
he prepares rain for the earth,
he makes grass grow upon the hills.
הַמְכַסֶּה שָׁמַיִם בְּעָבִים הַמֵּכִין לָאָרֶץ מָטָר
הַמַּצְמִיחַ הָרִים חָצִיר׃
 
He gives to the beasts their food,
and to the young ravens which cry.
נֹותֵן לִבְהֵמָה לַחְמָהּ לִבְנֵי עֹרֵב אֲשֶׁר יִקְרָאוּ׃  
His delight is not in the strength of the horse,
nor his pleasure in the legs of a man;
לֹא בִגְבוּרַת הַסּוּס יֶחְפָּץ לֹא־בְשֹׁוקֵי הָאִישׁ יִרְצֶה׃  
but the LORD takes pleasure in those who fear him,
in those who hope in his steadfast love.
רֹוצֶה יְהוָה אֶת־יְרֵאָיו אֶת־הַמְיַחֲלִים לְחַסְדֹּו׃  
Praise the LORD, O Jerusalem!
Praise your God, O Zion!
שַׁבְּחִי יְרוּשָׁלִַם אֶת־יְהוָה הַלְלִי אֱלֹהַיִךְ צִיֹּון׃ Praise to the Lord the Almighty. Psalm 147b(v147)
For he strengthens the bars of your gates;
he blesses your sons within you.
כִּי־חִזַּק בְּרִיחֵי שְׁעָרָיִךְ בֵּרַךְ בָּנַיִךְ בְּקִרְבֵּךְ׃  
He makes peace in your borders;
he fills you with the finest of the wheat.
הַשָּׂם־גְּבוּלֵךְ שָׁלֹום חֵלֶב חִטִּים יַשְׂבִּיעֵךְ׃  
He sends forth his command to the earth;
his word runs swiftly.
הַשֹּׁלֵחַ אִמְרָתֹו אָרֶץ עַד־מְהֵרָה יָרוּץ דְּבָרֹו׃  
He gives snow like wool;
he scatters hoarfrost like ashes.
הַנֹּתֵן שֶׁלֶג כַּצָּמֶר כְּפֹור כָּאֵפֶר יְפַזֵּר׃  
He casts forth his ice like morsels;
who can stand before his cold?
מַשְׁלִיךְ קַרְחֹו כְפִתִּים לִפְנֵי קָרָתֹו מִי יַעֲמֹד׃  
He sends forth his word, and melts them;
he makes his wind blow, and the waters flow.
יִשְׁלַח דְּבָרֹו וְיַמְסֵם יַשֵּׁב רוּחֹו יִזְּלוּ־מָיִם׃  
He declares his word to Jacob,
his statutes and ordinances to Israel.
מַגִּיד [כ= דְּבָרֹו] [ק= דְּבָרָיו] לְיַעֲקֹב חֻקָּיו וּמִשְׁפָּטָיו לְיִשְׂרָאֵל׃  
He has not dealt thus with any other nation;
they do not know his ordinances.
Praise the LORD!
לֹא עָשָׂה כֵן לְכָל־גֹּוי וּמִשְׁפָּטִים בַּל־יְדָעוּם
הַלְלוּ־יָהּ׃
 
      << | Psalms: 147 | >>
