Psalms - Chapter 146

1

Praise the LORD. Praise the LORD, O my soul.


2

I will praise the LORD all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.


3

Do not put your trust in princes, in mortal men, who cannot save.


4

When their spirit departs, they return to the ground; on that very day their plans come to nothing.


5

Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD his God,


6

the Maker of heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them-- the LORD, who remains faithful forever.


7

He upholds the cause of the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets prisoners free,


8

the LORD gives sight to the blind, the LORD lifts up those who are bowed down, the LORD loves the righteous.


9

The LORD watches over the alien and sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the wicked.


10

The LORD reigns forever, your God, O Zion, for all generations. Praise the LORD.
