Psalm 146

Psalm 146

The Happiness of Those Whose Help is the Lord

1 Praise 1the Lord!

aPraise the Lord, O my soul!

2 bWhile I live I will praise the Lord;

I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.

3 cDo not put your trust in princes,

Nor in 2a son of man, in whom there is no 3help.

4 dHis spirit departs, he returns to his earth;

In that very day ehis plans perish.

5 fHappy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help,

Whose hope is in the Lord his God,

6 gWho made heaven and earth,

The sea, and all that is in them;

Who keeps truth forever,

7 hWho executes justice for the oppressed,

iWho gives food to the hungry.

jThe Lord gives freedom to the prisoners.

8 kThe Lord opens the eyes of the blind;

lThe Lord raises those who are bowed down;

The Lord loves the righteous.

9 mThe Lord watches over the strangers;

He relieves the fatherless and widow;

nBut the way of the wicked He 4turns upside down.

10 oThe Lord shall reign forever—

Your God, O Zion, to all generations.

Praise the Lord!
