Psalm 146

1Praise ye the LORD. Praise the LORD, O my soul.

2While I live will I praise the LORD: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.

3Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.

4His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.

5Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God:

6Which made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is; which keepeth truth for ever:

7Which executeth judgment for the oppressed; which giveth food to the hungry: the LORD looseth the prisoners;

8The LORD openeth the eyes of the blind; the LORD raiseth up them that are bowed down; the LORD loveth the righteous;

9The LORD preserveth the strangers; he upholdeth the fatherless and widow; but the way of the wicked he turneth upside down.

10The LORD shall reign for ever, thy God, O Zion, unto all generations. Praise ye the LORD.
