Justice of the Kingdom

Psalm 146

Halleluyah! Praise Adonai, O my soul!
I will praise Adonai all my life.
I will praise my God yet again.
Do not put your trust in princes—
in man, in whom there is no salvation.
His breath departs,
he returns to his dust.
In that very day his plans perish.
Happy is he whose help is the God of Jacob,
whose hope is in Adonai his God,
who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them,
who keeps truth forever,
who executes justice for the oppressed,
who gives bread to the hungry.
Adonai sets the prisoners free.
Adonai opens the eyes of the blind.[a]
Adonai raises up those who are bowed down.
Adonai loves the righteous.
Adonai protects outsiders,
upholds the fatherless and the widow,
but thwarts the way of the wicked.
10 Adonai will reign forever,
your God, O Zion, from generation to generation.


  1. Psalm 146:8 cf. Matt. 9:27-30.
