Psalm 146

Praise for God’s Help

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!
