Psalm 146

Psalm 146

Praise the Lord.a

Praise the Lord,x my soul.

I will praise the Lord all my life;y

I will sing praisez to my God as long as I live.a

Do not put your trust in princes,b

in human beings,c who cannot save.

When their spirit departs, they return to the ground;d

on that very day their plans come to nothing.e

Blessed are thosef whose helpg is the God of Jacob,

whose hope is in the Lord their God.

He is the Maker of heavenh and earth,

the sea, and everything in them—

he remains faithfuli forever.

He upholdsj the cause of the oppressedk

and gives food to the hungry.l

The Lord sets prisoners free,m

8 the Lord gives sightn to the blind,o

the Lord lifts up those who are bowed down,p

the Lord loves the righteous.q

The Lord watches over the foreignerr

and sustains the fatherlesss and the widow,t

but he frustrates the ways of the wicked.

10 The Lord reignsu forever,

your God, O Zion, for all generations.

Praise the Lord.
