146. Psalm 146

1Praise ye Jehovah.

Praise Jehovah, O my soul.

2While I live will I praise Jehovah:

I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.

3Put not your trust in princes,

Nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.

4His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth;

In that very day his thoughts perish.

5Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help,

Whose hope is in Jehovah his God:

6Who made heaven and earth,

The sea, and all that in them is;

Who keepeth truth for ever;

7Who executeth justice for the oppressed;

Who giveth food to the hungry.

Jehovah looseth the prisoners;

8Jehovah openeth the eyes of the blind;

Jehovah raiseth up them that are bowed down;

Jehovah loveth the righteous;

9Jehovah preserveth the sojourners;

He upholdeth the fatherless and widow;

But the way of the wicked he turneth upside down.

10Jehovah will reign for ever,

Thy God, O Zion, unto all generations.

Praise ye Jehovah.
