Psalms 147:15-18


147:15 He 1  sends his command through the earth; 2 

swiftly his order reaches its destination. 3 

147:16 He sends the snow that is white like wool;

he spreads the frost that is white like ashes. 4 

147:17 He throws his hailstones 5  like crumbs.

Who can withstand the cold wind he sends? 6 

147:18 He then orders it all to melt; 7 

he breathes on it, 8  and the water flows.

1 tn Heb “the one who.”

2 tn Heb “the one who sends his word, the earth.” The Hebrew term אֶרֶץ (’erets, “earth”) is an adverbial accusative; one must supply a preposition before it (such as “through” or “to”) in the English translation.

3 tn Heb “swiftly his word runs.”

4 tn Heb “the one who gives snow like wool, frost like ashes he scatters.”

5 tn Heb “his ice.”

6 tn Heb “Before his cold, who can stand?”

7 tn Heb “he sends his word and melts them.”

8 tn Heb “he blows his breath.”
