Psalm 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 all my life long.

3  Do not put your trust in princes, in mortals, in whom there is no help.

4  When their breath departs, they return to the earth; on that very day, their plans perish.

5  Happy are those whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD their 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 strangers; he upholds the orphan and the widow, but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin.

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