12 But the Lord delights in those who fear him,
who put their trust in his steadfast love.
13 Sing praise to the Lord, O Jerusalem;
praise your God, O Zion;
14 For he has strengthened the bars of your gates
and has blest your children within you.
15 He has established peace in your borders
and satisfies you with the finest wheat.
16 He sends forth his command to the earth
and his word runs very swiftly.
17 He gives snow like wool
and scatters the hoarfrost like ashes.
18 He casts down his hailstones like morsels of bread;
who can endure his frost?
19 He sends forth his word and melts them;
he blows with his wind and the waters flow.
20 He declares his word to Jacob,
his statutes and judgements to Israel.
