New Revised Standard Version Updated Edition
Praise for God’s Help
5 Happy are those whose help is the God of Jacob,
whose hope is in the Lord their God,(E)
6 who made heaven and earth,
the sea, and all that is in them;
who keeps faith forever;(F)
7 who executes justice for the oppressed;
who gives food to the hungry.
The Lord sets the prisoners free;(G)
8 the Lord opens the eyes of the blind.
The Lord lifts up those who are bowed down;
the Lord loves the righteous.(H)
9 The Lord watches over the strangers;
he upholds the orphan and the widow,
but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin.(I)
10 The Lord will reign forever,
your God, O Zion, for all generations.
Praise the Lord!(J)
