1 Praise the Lord.a
Praise the Lord,x my soul.
2 I will praise the Lord all my life;y
3 Do not put your trust in princes,b
in human beings,c who cannot save.
4 When their spirit departs, they return to the ground;d
on that very day their plans come to nothing.e
whose hope is in the Lord their God.
6 He is the Maker of heavenh and earth,
the sea, and everything in them—
he remains faithfuli forever.
and gives food to the hungry.l
The Lord sets prisoners free,m
the Lord lifts up those who are bowed down,p
the Lord loves the righteous.q
9 The Lord watches over the foreignerr
but he frustrates the ways of the wicked.
10 The Lord reignsu forever,
your God, O Zion, for all generations.
Praise the Lord.
Hebrew Hallelu Yah; also in verse 10
