Psalm 146 Darby Translation (DARBY)

146 Hallelujah! Praise Jehovah, O my soul.

As long as I live will I praise Jehovah; I will sing psalms unto my God while I have my being.

Put not confidence in nobles, in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation.

His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his purposes perish.

Blessed is he who hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in Jehovah his God,

Who made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is therein; who keepeth truth for ever;

Who executeth judgment for the oppressed, who giveth bread to the hungry. Jehovah looseth the prisoners;

Jehovah openeth [the eyes of] the blind; Jehovah raiseth up them that are bowed down; Jehovah loveth the righteous;

Jehovah preserveth the strangers; he lifteth up the fatherless and the widow; but the way of the wicked doth he subvert.

10 Jehovah will reign for ever, [even] thy God, O Zion, from generation to generation. Halleluiah!

Psalm 146 New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 146

Praise the Lord.[a]

Praise the Lord, my soul.

I will praise the Lord all my life;
    I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.
Do not put your trust in princes,
    in human beings, who cannot save.
When their spirit departs, they return to the ground;
    on that very day their plans come to nothing.
Blessed are those whose help is the God of Jacob,
    whose hope is in the Lord their God.

He is the Maker of heaven and earth,
    the sea, and everything in them—
    he remains faithful forever.
He upholds the cause of the oppressed
    and gives food to the hungry.
The Lord sets prisoners free,
    the Lord gives sight to the blind,
the Lord lifts up those who are bowed down,
    the Lord loves the righteous.
The Lord watches over the foreigner
    and sustains the fatherless and the widow,
    but he frustrates the ways of the wicked.

10 The Lord reigns forever,
    your God, O Zion, for all generations.

Praise the Lord.
