Epifanie: Vyfde Sondag na die Epifanie


In Praise of God the Almighty

1Praise the LORD!

It is good to sing praise to our God;

it is pleasant and right to praise him.

2The LORD is restoring Jerusalem;

he is bringing back the exiles.

3He heals the broken-hearted

and bandages their wounds.

4He has decided the number of the stars

and calls each one by name.

5Great and mighty is our Lord;

his wisdom cannot be measured.

6He raises the humble,

but crushes the wicked to the ground.

7Sing hymns of praise to the LORD;

play music on the harp to our God.

8He spreads clouds over the sky;

he provides rain for the earth

and makes grass grow on the hills.

9He gives animals their food

and feeds the young ravens when they call.

10His pleasure is not in strong horses,

nor his delight in brave soldiers;

11but he takes pleasure in those who honour him,

in those who trust in his constant love.

Psalms 147:1-11GNBOpen in Bible reader

20He has not done this for other nations;

they do not know his laws.

Praise the LORD!
