Psalms 146

Put Not Your Trust in Princes

1 aPraise the Lord!
Praise the Lord, O my soul!
2I will praise the Lord bas long as I live;
cI will sing praises to my God while I have my being.
3 dPut not your trust in princes,
ein a son of man, in whom there is fno salvation.
4When ghis breath departs, he returns to the earth;
on that very day his plans perish.
5 hBlessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob,
whose ihope is in the Lord his God,
6 jwho made heaven and earth,
the sea, and all that is in them,
kwho keeps faith forever;
7 lwho executes justice for the oppressed,
mwho gives food to the hungry.
nThe Lord sets the prisoners free;
8 othe Lord opens the eyes of the blind.
pThe Lord lifts up those who are bowed down;
qthe Lord loves the righteous.
9 rThe Lord watches over the sojourners;
she upholds the widow and the fatherless,
but tthe way of the wicked he brings to ruin.
10 uThe Lord will reign forever,
your God, O Zion, to all generations.
vPraise the Lord!
