Lauda, Jerusalem. The church is called upon to praise God for his peculiar graces and favours to his people. In the Hebrew, this psalm is joined to the foregoing. Alleluia.

[12] Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem: praise thy God, O Sion. [13] Because he hath strengthened the bolts of thy gates, he hath blessed thy children within thee. [14] Who hath placed peace in thy borders: and filleth thee with the fat of corn. [15] Who sendeth forth his speech to the earth: his word runneth swiftly.

[16] Who giveth snow like wool: scattereth mists like ashes. [17] He sendeth his crystal like morsels: who shall stand before the face of his cold? [18] He shall send out his word, and shall melt them: his wind shall blow, and the waters shall run. [19] Who declareth his word to Jacob: his justices and his judgments to Israel. [20] He hath not done in like manner to every nation: and his judgments he hath not made manifest to them. Alleluia.

[17] "He sendeth his crystal": That is, his ice. Some understand it of hail, which is, as it were, ice, divided into particles or morsels.
