“Praise Yahweh, O Jerusalem; praise your God, O Zion! For He has strengthened the bars of your gates, He has blessed your children within you. Who has placed peace in your borders and filled you with the fat of corn. Who sends forth His speech to the earth: His word runs swiftly, Who gives snow like wool and scatters mists like ashes. He sends crystal-like morsels: who shall stand before the face of His cold? He shall send out His word and shall melt them: His wind shall blow and the waters shall run. Who declared His word to Jacob: His justices and His judgments to Israel. He has not done in like manner to every nation and His judgments He has not made manifest to them” (Ps 147:12-20).
