146 Hallelujah! Praise the Lord, my soul! 2 I will praise the Lord as long as I live, singing praises to my God while I exist.
3 Do not look to nobles, nor to mere human beings who cannot save. 4 When they stop breathing, they return to the ground; on that very day their plans evaporate!
5 Happy is the one whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord his God, 6 maker of heaven and earth, the seas and everything in them, forever the guardian of truth, 7 who brings justice for the oppressed, and who gives food to the hungry.
The Lord frees the prisoners; 8 the Lord gives sight to the blind. The Lord lifts up those who are weighed down. The Lord loves the righteous. 9 The Lord stands guard over the stranger; he supports both widows and orphans, but makes the path of the wicked slippery.[a]
10 The Lord will reign forever, your God, Zion, for all generations!
