“The LORD taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy.”
King James Version (KJV)
147:9 Ravens - Which he mentions because they were most contemptible, especially to the Jews, to whom they were unclean: and because they are not only neglected by men, but also forsaken by their dams as soon as ever they can fly, and so are wholly left to the care of Divine providence.
147:10 Delighteth not - As if he needed either the one or the other for the accomplishment of his designs.
147:13 Thy gates - Thy strength consists not in thy walls, and gates, and bars, but in his protection.
The Lord taketh pleasure in them that feare him: in those that hope in his mercie.
