146 [a]Praise [b]the Lord! Praise the Lord, O my soul! 2 I will praise the Lordwhile I live; I will sing praises to my God while I have my being. 3 Do not trust in princes, In [c]mortal man, in whom there is no salvation. 4 His spirit departs, he returns to [d]the earth; In that very day his thoughts perish. 5 How blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, Whose hope is in the Lord his God, 6 Who made heaven and earth, The sea and all that is in them; Who keeps [e]faith forever; 7 Who executes justice for the oppressed; Who gives food to the hungry. The Lordsets the prisoners free.
8 The Lordopens the eyes of the blind; The Lordraises up those who are bowed down; The Lordloves the righteous; 9 The Lord[f]protects the [g]strangers; He [h]supports the fatherless and the widow, But He [i]thwarts the way of the wicked. 10 The Lord will reign forever, Your God, O Zion, to all generations. [j]Praise [k]the Lord!
