Thousands turned out to protest the American presence in Japan.
1Praise Yah; for it is good to sing praises to our god; for it is pleasant, and praise is pleasing.
2Yahvah builds up Jerusalem; he gathers together the scattered of Israel.
3He heals the broken of heart, and binds up their wounds.
4He counts the number of the stars; he calls them all by their names.
5Great is our master, and great is his power; his understanding is infinite.
6Yahvah lifts up the meek; he humbles the wicked down to the ground.
7Sing to Yahvah with thanksgiving; sing praise on the harp to our god,
8who covers the skies with clouds, who gives rain on the land, who makes grass to grow on the mountains.
9He gives to the cattle their food, and to the young ravens which cry.
10He does not delight in the strength of the horse; he takes no pleasure in the legs of a mighty man.
11Yahvah takes pleasure in those who revere him, in those who hope in his mercy.
12Praise Yahvah, Jerusalem; praise your god, Zion.
13For he has strengthened the bars of your gates; he has blessed your sons inside you.
14He makes peace in your borders, and fills you with the finest of the wheat.
15He sends forth his commandment on land; his word runs very swiftly.
16He gives snow like wool; he scatters the white-frost like ashes.
17He casts forth his ice like morsels; who can stand before his cold?
18He sends out his word and melts them; he causes his wind to blow, and the waters flow.
19He declares his word to Jacob, his statutes and his judgments to Israel.
20He has not dealt so with all nations; and his judgments he has not made known to them. Praise Yah.
Thousands turned out in the streets of Tokyo to protest the American presence in Japan. The American military brings crime, noise and pollution to Okinawa. An agreement had been reached earlier to move the Marines to a less populated area, but nothing had been done as of this date.
The key verse, 10, references the "Mighty Man" a prophetic reference to the USA. As a nation the USA is relying on military might, and not on God. It counts its horses, some of which are stationed in Japan, and does not look to God for protection. (A recipe for disaster.)
The thought is continued in verse 11, and says he takes care of those who trust in him.
