Put Not Your Trust in Princes1 a Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord, O my soul!
2 I will praise the Lord b as long as I live;
c I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.
3 d Put not your trust in princes,
e in a son of man, in whom there is f no salvation.
4 When g his breath departs, he returns to the earth;
on that very day his plans perish.
5 h Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob,
whose i hope is in the Lord his God,
6 j who made heaven and earth,
the sea, and all that is in them,
k who keeps faith forever;
7 l who executes justice for the oppressed,
m who gives food to the hungry.
n The Lord sets the prisoners free;
8 o the Lord opens the eyes of the blind.
p The Lord lifts up those who are bowed down;
q the Lord loves the righteous.
9 r The Lord watches over the sojourners;
s he upholds the widow and the fatherless,
but t the way of the wicked he brings to ruin.
10 u The Lord will reign forever,
your God, O Zion, to all generations.
v Praise the Lord!
