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.
