    SEV Biblia, Chapter 147:8

    El que cubre los cielos de nubes, el que prepara la lluvia para la tierra, el que hace a los montes producir hierba.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Psalms 146:8

    Verse 8. Who covereth the
    heaven with clouds ] Collects the vapours together, in order to cause it to rain upon the earth. Even the direction of the winds, the collection of the clouds, and the descent of the rain, are under the especial management of God. These things form a part of his providential management of the world.

    Maketh grass to grow upon the mountains. ] After this clause the Vulgate, the Septuagint, AEthiopic, Arabic, and Anglo- Saxon, add, and herb for the service of man. It appears that a hemistich, or half-line, has been lost from the Hebrew text; which, according to the above Versions, must have stood thus: dah tdb[l b[w veeseb laabodath haadam, as in Psa. civ. 14: "And herbage for the service of mankind."


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-11 - Praising God is work that is its own wages. It is comely; it becomes u as reasonable creatures, much more as people in covenant with God. He gathers outcast sinners by his grace, and will bring them into his holy habitation. To those whom God heals with the consolations of his Spirit, he speaks peace, assures them their sins are pardoned. And for this, let others praise him also. Man's knowledge is soon ended; but God's knowledge is a dept that can never be fathomed. And while he telleth the number of the stars, he condescends to hear the broken-hearted sinner. While he feeds the young ravens, he will no leave his praying people destitute. Clouds look dull and melancholy yet without them we could have no rain, therefore no fruit. Thu afflictions look black and unpleasant; but from clouds of afflictio come showers that make the soul to yield the peaceable fruits of righteousness. The psalmist delights not in things wherein sinner trust and glory; but a serious and suitable regard to God is, in his sight, of very great price. We are not to be in doubt between hope an fear, but to act under the gracious influences of hope and fear united.
