Psalm 147B

12 O Jerusalem, glorify the LORD!

 O Sion, praise your God!

 13 He has strengthened the bars of your gates;

 he has blessed your children within you.

 14 He established peace on your borders;

 he gives you your fill of finest wheat.

15 He sends out his word to the earth,

 and swiftly runs his command.

 16 He showers down snow like wool;

 he scatters hoarfrost like ashes.

17 He hurls down hailstones like crumbs;

 before such cold, who can stand?

 18 He sends forth his word and it melts them;

 at the blowing of his breath the waters flow.

19 He reveals his word to Jacob;

 to Israel, his decrees and judgments.

 20 He has not dealt thus with other nations;

 he has not taught them his judgments.
