12Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem! Praise your God, O Zion!

13For he strengthens the bars of your gates; he blesses your children within you.

14He grants peace within your borders; he fills you with the finest of wheat.

15He sends out his command to the earth; his word runs swiftly.

16He gives snow like wool; he scatters frost like ashes.

17He hurls down hail like crumbs— who can stand before his cold?

18He sends out his word, and melts them; he makes his wind blow, and the waters flow.

19He declares his word to Jacob, his statutes and ordinances to Israel.

20He has not dealt thus with any other nation; they do not know his ordinances. Praise the Lord!
