12Praise Yahweh, Jerusalem!
Praise your God, Zion!
13For he has strengthened the bars of your gates.
He has blessed your children within you.
14He makes peace in your borders.
He fills you with the finest of the wheat.
15He sends out his commandment to the earth.
His word runs very swiftly.
16He gives snow like wool,
and scatters frost like ashes.
17He hurls down his hail like pebbles.
Who can stand before his cold?
18He sends out his word, and melts them.
He causes his wind to blow, and the waters flow.
19He shows his word to Jacob;
his statutes and his ordinances to Israel.
20He has not done this for just any nation.
They don’t know his ordinances.
