Book of Psalms

The Douay-Rheims Bible


Chapter 147

12    Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem: praise thy God, O Sion.
13    Because he hath strengthened the bolts of thy gates, he hath blessed thy children within thee.
14    Who hath placed peace in thy borders: and filleth thee with the fat of corn.
15    Who sendeth forth his speech to the earth: his word runneth swiftly.
16    Who giveth snow like wool: scattereth mists like ashes.
17    He sendeth his crystal like morsels: who shall stand before the face of his cold?
18    He shall send out his word, and shall melt them: his wind shall blow, and the waters shall run.
19    Who declareth his word to Jacob: his justices and his judgments to Israel.
20    He hath not done in like manner to every nation: and his judgments he hath not made manifest to them. Alleluia.
