Who covereth the heaven with clouds, . who prepareth rain for the earth, who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains. He giveth to the beast his food; and to the young ravens which cry. He delighteth not in the strength of the horse: : 10 he taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man. " JEHOVAH taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy. Praise Jehovah, O Jerusalem; praise thy God, o Sion. For he hath strengthened the bars of thy gates ; he hath blessed thy children within thee. He maketh peace in thy borders, and filleth thee with the finest of the wheat. He sendeth forth his commandment upon earth : 15 his word runneth very swiftly. He giveth snow like wool : he scattereth the hoar-frost like ashes. He casteth forth his ice like morsels : who can stand before his cold? He sendeth out his word, and melteth them: he causeth his wind to blow, and the waters flow. He showeth his word unto Jacob: his statutes and his judgments unto Israel. He hath not dealed so with any nation : and as for his judgments, they have not known them. Praise ye JEHOVAH.

PSALM CXLVIII. PRAISE ye JEHOVAH. Praise ye Jehovah from the heavens: praise him in the heights...! Praise ye him, all his angels : praise ye him, all his hosts. Praise ye him, sun and moon : praise him, all ye stars of light. Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens. Let them praise the name of JEHOVAH : for he commanded, and they were created. He hath also stablished them for ever and over : he hath made a decree which shall not pass. .. Praise Jehovah from the earth, ye dragons, and all deeps : Fire, and hail; snow, and vapours; stormy wind fulfilling his word : Mountains, and all hills; fruitful trees, and all cedars : Beasts, and all cattle ; creeping things, and flying fowl: Kings of the earth, and all people ; princes, and all judges of the earth : Both young men, and maidens; old men, and children : Let them praise the name of JEHOVAH: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven.

a people near unto him.

harp. For JEHOVAH taketh pleasure in his people : he will beautify the meek with salvation.

Praise ye JEHOVAH.
