Psalm 147:2-6

2-6God's the one who rebuilds Jerusalem,

who regathers Israel's scattered exiles.

He heals the heartbroken

and bandages their wounds.

He counts the stars

and assigns each a name.

Our Lord is great, with limitless strength;

we'll never comprehend what he knows and does.

God puts the fallen on their feet again

and pushes the wicked into the ditch.

7-11Sing to God a thanksgiving hymn,

play music on your instruments to God,

Who fills the sky with clouds,

preparing rain for the earth,

Then turning the mountains green with grass,

feeding both cattle and crows.

He's not impressed with horsepower;

the size of our muscles means little to him.

Those who fear God get God's attention;

they can depend on his strength.
