Praise the LORD, O Jerusalem!
Praise your God, O Zion!
For he strengthens the bars of your gates;
he blesses your children within you.
He makes peace in your borders;
He fills you with the finest of the wheat.
He sends out his command to the earth;
His word runs swiftly.
He gives snow like wool;
He scatters hoarfrost like ashes.
He hurls down his crystals of ice like crumbs;
who can stand before His cold?
He sends out his word, and melts them;
He makes His wind blow and the waters flow.
He declares His word to Jacob,
His statutes and rules to Israel.
