8

He covers the heavens with clouds,

prepares rain for the earth,

makes grass grow on the hills.

9

He gives to the animals their food,

and to the young ravens when they cry.

10

His delight is not in the strength of the horse,

nor his pleasure in the speed of a runner;

11

but the Lord takes pleasure in those who fear him,

in those who hope in his steadfast love.

 

12

Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem!

Praise your God, O Zion!

13

For he strengthens the bars of your gates;

he blesses your children within you.

14

He grants peace within your borders;

he fills you with the finest of wheat.

15

He sends out his command to the earth;

his word runs swiftly.

16

He gives snow like wool;

he scatters frost like ashes.

17

He hurls down hail like crumbs—

who can stand before his cold?

18

He sends out his word, and melts them;

he makes his wind blow, and the waters flow.
