Glorify the Lord, Jerusalem; Zion, offer praise to your God,
who has strengthened the bars of your gates, blessed your children within you,
brought peace to your borders, and filled you with finest wheat.
The Lord sends a command to earth; his word runs swiftly!
Thus snow is spread like wool, frost is scattered like ash, hail is dispersed like crumbs;
before such colds the waters freeze.
Again he sends his word and they melt; the wind is unleashed and the waters flow.
The Lord also proclaims his word to Jacob, decrees and laws to Israel.
God has not done this for other nations; of such laws they know nothing.

Psalm 147: 12-20
