Psalms - Chapter 146
Praise be to God the Creator
1 Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD, O my soul!
2 While I live I will praise the LORD; I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.
3 Do not put your trust in princes, [Nor] in a son of man, in whom [there is] no help.
4 His spirit departs, he returns to his earth; In that very day his plans perish.
5 Happy [is he] who [has] the God of Jacob for his help, Whose hope [is] in the LORD his God,
6 Who made heaven and earth, The sea, and all that [is] in them; Who keeps truth forever,
7 Who executes justice for the oppressed, Who gives food to the hungry. The LORD gives freedom to the prisoners.
8 The LORD opens [the eyes of] the blind; The LORD raises those who are bowed down; The LORD loves the righteous.
9 The LORD watches over the strangers; He relieves the fatherless and widow; But the way of the wicked He turns upside down.
10 The LORD shall reign forever -- Your God, O Zion, to all generations. Praise the LORD!
