Psalm 146

The God of Compassion

* Hallelujah!

My soul, praise the Lord. v

I will praise the Lord all my life;

I will sing to my God as long as I live. w

Do not trust in nobles,

in man, who cannot save. x

When his breath y leaves him,

he returns to the ground;

on that day his plans die. z

Happy is the one whose help is the God of Jacob,

whose hope is in the Lord his God, a

the Maker of heaven and earth,

the sea and everything in them. b

He remains faithful forever, c

executing justice for the exploited

and giving food to the hungry. d

The Lord frees prisoners. e

The Lord opens the eyes of the blind. f

The Lord raises up those who are oppressed. g h

The Lord loves the righteous. i

The Lord protects foreigners

and helps the fatherless and the widow, j

but He frustrates the ways of the wicked. k

10 The Lord reigns forever;

* Zion, your God reigns for all generations. l
