135:1  Confitemini Domino, quoniam [ipse] bonus, quoniam in saeculum misericordia ejus.
135:25a  Qui dat escam omni carni:
146:9  qui dat jumentis escam ipsorum, et pullis corvorum invocantibus eum.
146:10  Non in fortitudine equi voluntatem habebit, nec in tibiis viri beneplacitum erit ei.
146:11  Beneplacitum est Domino super timentes eum, et in eis qui sperant super misericordia ejus.

136:1  O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is gracious: and his mercy endureth for ever.
136:25a  Who giveth food to all flesh:
147:9  Who giveth fodder unto the cattle: and feedeth the young ravens that call upon him.
147:10  He hath no pleasure in the strength of an horse: neither delighteth he in any man's legs.
147:11  But the Lord's delight is in them that fear him: and put their trust in his mercy.
