1 Praise the Eternal! Praise the Eternal, O my soul; 2 I will praise the Eternal for as long as I live. I will sing praises to my God as long as breath fills my lungs and blood flows through my veins.
3 Do not put your trust in the rulers of this world—kings and princes. Do not expect any rescue from mortal men. 4 As soon as their breath leaves them, they return to the earth; on that day, all of them perish—their dreams, their plans, and their memories.
5 Blessed are those whose help comes from the God of Jacob, whose hope is centered in the Eternal their God— 6 Who created the heavens, the earth, the seas, and all that lives within them; Who stays true and remains faithful forever; 7 Who works justice for those who are pressed down by the world, providing food for those who are hungry.
The Eternal frees those who are imprisoned; 8 He makes the blind see. He lifts up those whose backs are bent in labor; He cherishes those who do what is right. 9 The Eternal looks after those who journey in a land not their own; He takes care of the orphan and the widow, but He frustrates the wicked along their way.
10 The Eternal will reign today, tomorrow, and forever. People of Zion, your God will rule forever over all generations. Praise the Eternal!
