Summary of Psalm 147:8

Psalm 147:8 (ESV)

8 He covers the heavens with clouds; he prepares rain for the earth; he makes grass grow on the hills.

This verse and the following verse show similarities with Psalm 104:13–14. It is a confession that all life exists through the Lord. He is the God who makes life possible (rain, growth). The first verb in Psalm 147:8 describes God as the One who actively steers the clouds filled with rain.
