Psalms 146

1

Praise the LORD!Praise the LORD, O my soul!

2

I will praise the LORD as long as I live; I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.

3

Put not your trust in princes, in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation.

4

When his breath departs he returns to the earth; on that very day his plans perish.

5

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

6

who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, who keeps faith forever;

7

who executes justice for the oppressed, who gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets the prisoners free;

8

the LORD opens the eyes of the blind. The LORD lifts up those who are bowed down; the LORD loves the righteous.

9

The LORD watches over the sojourners; he upholds the widow and the fatherless, but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin.

10

The LORD will reign forever, your God, O Zion, to all generations. Praise the LORD!
