Psalms 146

1Praise the  Lord.
Hebrew Hallelu Yah; also in verse 10

Praise the  Lord, my soul.
2I will praise the  Lord all my life;
I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.
3Do not put your trust in princes,
in human beings, who cannot save.
4When their spirit departs, they return to the ground;
on that very day their plans come to nothing.
5Blessed are those whose help is the God of Jacob,
whose hope is in the  Lord their God.
6He is the Maker of heaven and earth,
the sea, and everything in them –
he remains faithful for ever.
7He upholds the cause of the oppressed
and gives food to the hungry.
The  Lord sets prisoners free,
8the  Lord gives sight to the blind,
the  Lord lifts up those who are bowed down,
the  Lord loves the righteous.
9The  Lord watches over the foreigner
and sustains the fatherless and the widow,
but he frustrates the ways of the wicked.
10The  Lord reigns for ever,
your God, O Zion, for all generations.
Praise the  Lord.
