Psalm 147

Praise the Lord for his grace to Israel.

1–6 God’s greatness and our neediness
7–11 God’s provision and our faith
12–20 God’s blessings and our praise

  • “The God of the stars is the God of broken hearts” (Robert Ketcham, vv. 3–4).
  • Verses 2–6 brings the contrasts of God’s greatness and our lowliness together to encourage trust and faith in him.
  • What do we have a tendency to glorify (v. 10)? What does the Lord desire (v. 11)? Shouldn’t we want what God wants?
